Many of you may have these following questions in your mind right now. What is Klement Backpacking and Ministry? What are they doing in that backpacking and ministry?

Let me share to you the answers:

Klement - this is the name of our batch who graduated in Mountain View College, Valencia City, Bukidnon on March 2009 with the degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Today, these young professionals are scattered all over the world working and doing the things they love. We have these words always in our hearts, "with love, with joy, we care." 

Backpacking - budget, independent, international travel. For us, traveling does not require a vast reservoir of wealth and resources rather it needs a wise and thoughtful use of time and finances. We are now embracing this concept of traveling.

Ministry - it means serving and ministering to the needs of others, and joyfully sharing the love of Jesus to all the people of the world. Our class song still rings, "With Your compassion, we give care."

This text from the Bible is our inspiration, "And Jesus went about all cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people" -Matthew 9:35.
