2017 Trip: currently in the planning stages Click for the 2017 International Missions Gifts List
(Map) Most people consider Jamaica to be a vacation destination. Once you leave the coast of the island, this ceases to be the case. Jamaicans are vibrant and resourceful people, and most of them struggle to survive. There is also a multitude of orphanages scattered throughout the island.
Over the years WordWalk has established a presence there by bringing much needed medical and health supplies, school supplies, builders and building materials, and hundreds of Bibles. It is in Jamaica where WordWalk discovered its mantra of mission, which is “no one goes unnoticed.”
We have three Jamaican brothers (Hilary, Shaggy, and Danny) and a sister (Andrea) that we are privileged to minister alongside. Our dream is to see them in a full time capacity as WordWalk representatives to the Caribbean. Jamaica is also a “template mission” for WordWalk. The churches or groups that we partner with for the first time will likely start their international adventure here.
