The primary role of our volunteer team is to simply love and serve the women who attend the retreat. Global Women are in desperate need of refreshment, relaxation, laughter, and encouragement. That happens in many different ways, and you will get to be a part of it all.
Our registration for the Thrive 2018 Fall Retreat is officially open! We are hoping to host 75 Global Women in Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines. We are now ready to begin putting together our 2018 Philippines Volunteer Team. We are prayerfully hoping that God will build up a volunteer team of 30 women who are willing to serve our sisters. Is God leading you to be part of His work this October?
These are just some of the ways God may use you:
Thrive will handle all of the travel arrangements for you once our time together begins. We will stay at The Bellevue Resort and eat most of our meals on site at the hotel. You will be sharing a room with another member of the volunteer team unless you would like to cover the financial difference to have a single room (when available, based on hotel occupancy).
All of the meals for your time with us (excluding meals while traveling) will be included in the total amount of support that you raise for the trip. During the retreat we will eat at the hotel with the attendees. On the days before, between, and after the retreats we will eat either at the hotel or at local restaurants. We will research various restaurants ahead of time, but it is important to know that plans for our meals often change at the last minute based upon the fluctuating schedule of preparing for the retreat. Be sure to bring a flexible attitude with you, because we never know exactly what kind of food we will have!!
We will begin our volunteer staff time the evening of 10/24/2018 (depending on flight schedules). If you desire to arrive a day early, we can make arrangements at the resort for you. We will then adjust your cost/support goal accordingly. Please let me know of this request as soon as possible to ensure availability.
