Beauty for Ashes exists to share God's restoration, hope, and healing with women through ministry and training. Through Beauty for Ashes Retreats, women support and encourage each other by sharing their own stories and experiencing the healing, redeeming power of Jesus.

Trip Description

On this mission trip, Beauty for Ashes will serve the women of Wipe Every Tear (WET) in Manila, Philippines.

Wipe Every Tear is committed to bringing freedom, hope and a future to those trafficked in the sex trade. It provides safe places to call home, to education and discipleship.

We are excited to begin our 8th year of partnership with Wipe Every Tear, and they have always seen hope in the eyes of their girls: not just hope for themselves, but hope for their sisters, and hope for their nation.

Ministry Overview 

In the Philippines, Beauty for Ashes partners with Wipe Every Tear, a ministry that rescues girls trafficked and is committed to bringing hope and healing to the lives of these women. From safe places to call home, to education and discipleship, they exist to give women the opportunity to have their lives fully restored.

Your team will:

  • Host Beauty for Ashes retreats, creating a space for God to bring hope, healing, and redemption to the stories of local women.

  • Be trained and equipped to share about topics such as worth, identity, healing, and forgiveness with others through storytelling and vulnerability.

  • Build meaningful relationships with your team and those with whom you minister.

  • Gain a deeper understanding of who God is and who you are as His daughter.


Your team will stay at a nearby missionary guest house where bedding, pillows, and towels are provided for each participant. Sheets are also available, however, participants can bring their own if they wish.
