True Love Waits PH has been blessed with opportunities to partner with a wide variety of people, churches and organizations from other regions of the Philippines. Beginning January this year, we were able to go to Iloilo and Bacolod Cities. Our team traveled to Roxas City in August of 2017. We are now planning to return to Roxas City for our second trip.
On June 14 – July 3, 2018, we are sending our 2 staff along with 3 of our volunteers to Roxas City. The Team will be communicating the message of Absolute Purity through the Love Revolution Talk and Love Revolution Workshop to multiple public and private schools as well as several churches.
True Love Waits Philippines is a S.E.C. Registered non-profit organization committed to impacting youth by teaching them to be pure in heart, leading them to make the right choices—especially in the issue of delaying sexual debut until marriage. Teen Pregnancy, Abortion, Suicide, Depression, HIV AIDS, Pornography and Trafficking are all issues facing today’s youth.
In Western Visayas, the region where Roxas City is located, 1 in every 3 teenagers has engaged in premarital sex (University of the Philippines Population Institute (UPPI).
The youngest maternal death in the region based on PSA’s (Philippine Statistics Authority) 2016 data is 12 years old.
On another note, we are excited to say that the message of Absolute Purity was communicated to approximately 3,000 youth during our first trip August 29 – September 2, 2017. We are looking forward for our next trip this June 14 – July 3, 2018.
The True Love Waits Team will be speaking in large groups and following thatwe will train core leaders with the TLW workshop lessons. We are still looking for partner schools, churches and various organizations. If you are a leader and want to invite us, check our calendar to see if your preferred date for a talk or training is available.
Pray for us as we continue to seek God’s plan for this trip. Here are our prayer points:
- Pray that we will be able to come up with the financial support we needed. We are raising funds for our airfare, food and on the ground daily transportation and accommodation. You may also give by visiting this link. INVEST
- Pray that the message of Absolute Puritywill be communicated in our entire schedule.
- Most of our volunteers speak Tagalog or English; people from Roxas City speak Capiznon and Hiligaynon and less of Tagalog and English.
- Pray that the youth will continue to pursue a pure life and see it as a gift from God through Jesus Christ.
