Did you know that this year our youth are going to Jamaica? Every year we send our students on a major mission trip. The pattern has been to alternate between sites inside the United States and outside. Mexico has been the usual international experience, but events there in the past year have made that impractical. The situation in Haiti is still critical but the onsite coordination is still not up to handling large youth groups. Jamaica ended up being the best choice.
45 people (33 students and 12 adults) are heading to Jamaica from June 13-21. They will be working through an organization called Son Servants and the work will include home building with concrete block, Vacation Bible School, care and support at a local orphanage as well as at a local infirmary.
Mission Trips are powerful and formative- for everyone. I believe they are some of the best things our church, or any church, can offer their youth. We'll be looking forward to hearing all about it on Sunday, June 26th.
