2018 Missions Trip July 19-28
Currently there are 18 people interested in going with the Jamaica Mission team to Benbow, Jamaica. We have people from Texas, Arkansas, New Jersey, West Virginia and Ohio. Eleven different congregations are represented on the team. A fundraising dinner will be held after morning worship on Sunday, May 6th to support the team.
July 21-30, 2016, 15 people from two countries, three states and 6 congregations joined together as a team to go to Linstead, Jamaica. We had three ladies trained to do a modified medical mission, taking blood pressure, glucose testing and eye exams (Lorie Kirk, Ann Hartley and Tracie Stewart). Michelle Sole registered the people who came for the medical services. We had three Bible classes for Vacation Bible School: pre-school taught by Angelica Hickerson, with Pam Conger and Naschene Richards as helpers; 7-11 year olds taught by Meghan Hickerson, Rebekah Jones and J.T. Stephens; and the teen class taught by Dan Cooper with Sarah Hickerson and Thomas Palmer as helpers. We went "door knocking" and set up seven Bible studies. However, because it rained from 1-4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday we could only do Bible studies with those who came to the community building for the medical services. We served 39 people from the community and conducted 27 Bible studies that resulted in three baptisms. In addition to VBS, the medical services and Bible studies, we had worship services every night from Sunday through Thursday. Our attendance for VBS and worship services doubled from Monday to Thursday. Greg Kirk and Mary Ann Thorn co-directed the mission campaign.
