FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS THE DOOR FOR US TO TRAVEL TO JAMAICA HAS BEEN CLOSED. WE WONDERED HOW WE COULD SEE OUR LOVED ONES AND FAMILY AGAIN......IN 2015 PASTOR DEANS (OUR PASTOR IN JA) CALLED US TO MAKE A STATEMENT THAT THE KIDS WE HAD SPENT SO MUCH TIME WITH...THE KIDS WE HELPED RAISE...TEACH TO SWIM...SPENT SO MUCH TIME WITH......WERE WANTING TO DO A MISSION TRIP.
GUESS WHERE THEY WANTED TO COME? YES, TO US, HERE IN GEORGIA!
NOW, FOR TWO YEARS THEY HAVE RAISED THEIR OWN FUNDS AND HAVE SPENT TWO WEEKS IN THE SUMMER WITH US. WE SPEND COUNTLESS HOURS TOGETHER AS A FAMILY AND COUNTLESS HOURS MINISTERING HERE IN NORTHEAST GEORGIA. IT IS SUCH A BIG DEAL!
WE PLAN TO SEE OUR JAMAICAN FAMILY ARRIVE AGAIN IN JULY 2017.
We first landed on the Caribbean island of Jamaica in 2001. We love this tiny island in the sea not only for the turquoise blue waters, white sandy beaches and truly astounding sunsets, but much more for its beautiful people. The people of Jamaica have captured our hearts for many years now as we have traveled to share with them the love and message of Jesus Christ. While there we stay with a local pastor and his family, working alongside their church. We have so many diverse experiences on each journey. Some of these include the opportunity to share music and God's Word with public schools, build relationships with teenage mothers at a pregnancy center, host health fairs, share Jesus with many on the streets and hold close precious children in orphanages. This cross-cultural experience will change you forever.
TRIP DESCRIPTION: Focuses on relationship-building, public school assemblies, teen pregnancy centers, orphanages, street ministry, etc.
SUITABLE FOR AGES 15 AND UP.
"Let them give glory to the Lord and proclaim His praise in the islands." Isaiah 42:12
