It’s been several months since I last wrote on my blog. The temporary absence was due in part that I was blessed to lead mission teams into two Caribbean destinations. The training and planning for these summer journeys consumed much of my time – including the opportunity to write on occasionally on my blog. Never-the-less, the time and dedication to serve the teams were worth the brief hiatus. I came away from this experience knowing that each team member was able to passionately serve the people of Jamaica and Haiti!
Jamaica Mission Team
In July this mission group, tagged as “NavySeals10,” truly exuded a raw sense of passion for the people of Jamaica. Team members were eager to go out each morning to engage the people on the downtown streets of Montego Bay. And every afternoon on the hillside of the country, the team would spend quality time with inquisitive, yet excited children of Jamaica.
No one exhibited a tepid attitude nor did they become recluse to any of our day-to-day assignment. These passionate mission servants were willing to do whatever, give to whomever, and go wherever.
Haiti Mission Team
In August this mission group, tagged as the “Fantastic5,” demonstrated qualities of a servant:
- They made themselves available to serve.
- They paid attention to the needs of others.
- They did their best with what they had
- They were committed to every task and gave it 100%
- They remained faith to the ministry (even after arriving back to the US)
We spent most of our time in an orphanage one hour south of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Every gentle hug, every smile displayed, every positive affirmation given, and every cheerful expression was intended to speak directly into the heart of our Haitian children. These passionate mission servants were willing to provide hope and comfort in God.
We are now preparing for next year’s collection of uniquely designed mission travels with an expectation of training and sending 95 passionate missionaries throughout the world.
