So I got offered to tag along on a mission trip to the Philippines in October for about two weeks. What should I expect going into it? Are there toilets or are they savages like India? Are white people, especially Americans, hated there?

Not sure what this has to do with /christian/, but ok …

First of all, there are toilets in India. Don't believe the cherry picked images. If I showed you pictures of the worst parts of Detroit, would you believe that represents all of the US? Anyway, the Philippines is like any other nation. It has some great parts and has some crap parts. Enjoy your trip.

Do you not know what a mission trip is?

>>768651

The further south you go in the Phillipines the more poor it gets. Which island are you going to?

Also, check out >>>/pinoy/

They are 8ch's resident flips. These are some of the people you will be dealing with. Also, what kind of mission?

Are you doing a mission for the Church or for pic related?

Oh, derp. For some reason I didn't see "mission trip". Bad eyes.

idk Duterte does kill people extra-judicially. Even though it's targeted at criminal elements, it doesn't mean you're safe.

Are you a bunch of clueless protestants going there to try to convert Filipino Catholics? If so then stay home, it's a grave sin to try to convert Christians into error.

Why a mission trip to Philippines? unless you're going to the Muslim region in the south, 90% of Filipinos are Catholic and the rest are Protestants. Are protestants seriously going to the only majority Christian country in Asia to convert Catholics instead of going to one of the other countless Buddhist, HIndu, Muslim, Atheist, or Pagan countries? What kind of insanity is that?

This angers me because my fiancee is a Filipina and I know a lot of Filipinos well, they're devoted to God and don't need someone trying to trouble them and drag them to some protestant church. Go to India, China, Japan, or literally any Asian country except maybe south Korea and you'll find endless hundreds of millions who've never heard a single word about Jesus. You're going to a safe country where people already know the gospel and carry God in their hearts, and there's a Christian church on literally every street corner, instead of going to a place where no one knows a thing about Christ or the gospel and where there's actual danger and risk.

You'll probably be welcomed, they're very friendly people even though they're poor, and they love Americans and white people. It's the kind of culture where people put themselves out and would give their last bit of food or sleep on the floor and give up their bed to be hospitable to a guest. And most speak English better than they speak the national language, and yes there are toilets in most places, it's poor and underdeveloped in some places but they're not spear throwing savages, they've been Christian for 500 years and it's highly westernized compared to its neighbors. It's also one of the few countries where abortion, divorce, and gay marriage are illegal, which is why I worry about Prots bringing inadvertently bringing the globohomo and child sacrifice of America to it.

I think I know where me and my wife are going to retire now.

OP, you better be converting the ISIS folk down south and not converting the Catholics for some liberal prot heresy

Its more civilized then India, but really it depends on the island you are going to. In the south you are going to get your head cut off by moros (read: moors.) But otherwise there are many christians in the phillipenes and I applaud any effort to further christianize it.

Yeah right, these prot groups don't go anywhere dangerous where people truly need to hear the gospel. They just want to take a vacation and pat themselves on the back at the same time.

>2 weeks

Probably nothing really. Most missions are basically just retreats under the guise of evangelization. They don't last long enough to truly educate anyone on religion, most accept just about any laymen no matter how poorly taught they are, and most often they don't have a very specific goal to achieve besides just "a mission". The most good you can hope for is doing some volunteer work which will most likely be some kind of grueling manual labor like building houses or something like that.

You might as well go spread the word in your neighborhood.

Converting muslims is like banging your head against a wall.

Why go to convert a country that ships their unbelievers off on boats to go work in other countries to monetarily support their old, faithful family members? The only Filipinos that need to be converted are the atheists that don't live in the Philippines.

Funnily, I think even many of those are believers. I was reading an article about Catholics in Japan (a very small number.. like 0.4% of a total Christian population is that is only 1% of of Japan).. and then even many of those are actually Filipino workers.

Not a Catholic, but I'm going to have to ask what someone else said: Why focus mission on a such a large Catholic country, when the rest of Asia has depressing numbers like this? Only South Korea has a large Christian population next to Philippines. I'm half-Asian myself, so this is near to my heart. A lot more countries need a bigger church presence. Not the actual Christian countries.

Easy, Prots being Prots they try to ruin everything. The fact that OP hasn't come to chime in on his own thread is pretty telling.
