Philippines Learning Tour January 2023

Join the Peace and Reconciliation field experience


Mennonite Church Canada is pleased to announce a Philippines learning tour from January 12-22, 2023.

Participants will visit the Mindanao region of the Philippines to experience firsthand how to walk and talk the way of peace. They will gain a greater appreciation for God’s wonderful work of reconciliation, hope and healing while being challenged to see and share how God is moving in their own lives.

Lakan Sumulong and Lakambini Mapayapa (Dann & Joji Pantoja), MC Canada International Witness Workers, are engaged in active peace ministries in the Philippines that involve conversations with Muslims, Indigenous peoples and Christians. They, along with Norm Dyck, MCEC Mission Minister and MC Canada International Witness Liaison, will lead this tour.

Mennonite Church Canada offers this learning experience to individuals on a double occupancy basis for $2,250 CAD per person. This does not include international flights or visa. Full vaccination for COVID-19 is required for international travel.

“This tour will challenge and change how you understand mission and the work of God in the world,” says Norm. “As we listen, think creatively about witness and peace, and engage in cross-cultural conversation, we continue to grow in our desire to become a global church.”

The tour is limited to ten registered participants. At registration, a $500 deposit per person is required to reserve seats. Contact Norm Dyck at to reserve your place on this incredible tour.
