The team from Billings headed to the Philippines to help work on dorms, landscaping, and spend time with the kids. The trip was filled with hard work and fun times! Here is a little snippet of what the team accomplished during their time in the Philippines:

The team worked on painting the kids dorms on Thursday. Since Friday was a holiday, the kids had the chance to go home for a 3 day weekend. But, 56 of them stayed to help and work with the team! This made for a fun weekend for the team and the kids!

The kids helped paint both the interior and exterior of their dorms. Some kids swept the school grounds to clean up leaves and debris. 4 students joined Becky and Martha in sewing new curtains! They all enjoyed their time spent with the team. There were lots of smiles and laughing all weekend!

After getting some of the work done, the team spent a day on a Barrio Tour and zip line across the Loboc River. After dinner, the kids enjoyed bible study (Jesus Time) and some play time!

The trip was filled with fun times and also very productive for the team to meet in person with everyone over in the Philippines. Having a team in the Philippines and in Billings, communication is very important to make sure the kids are getting the best learning experience. The 2 teams work hard together from a distance in many aspects to make IDEA possible.

 

Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and support!
