    Good morning, I have been asked to join in a mission trip to the Philippines in the Spring 2014. I am just curious if anyone associated with your organization would know of the missionary organization or have contacts in the Philippines who could help me confirm and validate it. The mission organization is Healing Through Missions lead by Pastor Matthew Lamb and primarily appears to serve in Bulacan. If so, if you would provide me some contact information or email me any recommendations I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    To whom this may concern:

    Hello! Hope you are doing well.

    A newly-formed organization is inviting Filipino/Filipino-American and American professionals to join! The group is ©FILIPINO INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONALS (FIP). FIP’s main goal is to unite and connect Filipino professionals on a global scale.

    The website is http://www.filipinoip.org. Membership is 100% FREE (no catch, no gimmicks), and signing up is easy! Watch this YouTube video from Victor Cabiles (FIP Founder): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92pNkOnTYs8

    Non-Filipinos/other citizens are most welcome to join, as long as they support the group’s goal of uniting and connecting Filipino professionals globally.

    Hope you will join, and start business and social networking internationally.
