14 Former LDS Missionaries return to the Philippines to offer relief efforts
LEHI — A group from Utah is preparing to leave for the Philippines Saturday, taking with them professional skills and their personal experiences in that country in an effort to help the people.
The volunteers with Global Goods are all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who served missions in the Philippines in the 1990s which means they speak the languages, they understand the customs and they know how to get from one city or island to the next.
With their collective experience, 14 men hope to create an effective team for those in need. Some will help with clean-up efforts, while doctors, nurses and physicians assistants will treat injuries and illnesses in Ormoc City.
