This page has been created to support the Philippines Medical Mission Trip and Pastor’s Training Camp. This will take place in January 2017 under the auspices of Missionary Ventures Australia.

For the last few years Moonee Ponds Baptist Church in partnership with Missionary Ventures Australia has been sending small teams across to the Philippines to participate in a short term mission trips.

In 2013, in partnership with local health care specialists and churches, a medical clinic was provided free of charge for three days. A free medication consultation was provided. A G.P., heart specialist, paediatrician, optician, and dentist were present. Each patient was assessed, given specialist consultation and provided with free medication, treatment and other services such as eye glasses.

For 60 families a week long camp provided a welcome holiday for local children. Parents were provided with training and craft activities. Children enjoyed games, sports, swimming and relaxation in a beautiful camp ground.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016 we did it all again, this time the medical mission was held in Candon City and in 2016 the Pastor’s Training Camp and Family Retreat was held in the beautiful mountain city of Baguio.

The 2017 trip will see our team heading to Capiz.

Capiz is a province located in the region of Western Visayas in the central section of the Philippines. We have a small but dedicated team of six. plus our two directors, travelling this year. The location and extra transport required has seen our costs rise significantly for  this trip. Please prayerfully consider financially supporting this important work.
