GAC JAMAICA MISSION TRIP UPDATE:
DAY 1

Our Grace Avenue Mission Trip Team has arrived in Jamaica safely and are ready to dive into what God has in store. They are settled in and begin VBS and Youth Activation Services tomorrow morning. Day 1 ended with a team devotion where they went over what the ministry in Jamaica looks like. The Stewart’s, the family our team is staying with, had a calling from God to become missionaries and answered the call by asking God to send them into the most needed area. Here in Jamaica, 96% of the kids have been abused physically, sexually or mentally before the age of 12 and most of them come from broken homes. Most of the children they will be ministering to, live in a war zone. The area is so bad that the Jamaican residents will not even go into it unless they live there. There is a desperate need for learning what real biblical love and correction are really like and that is exactly what they are believing God will do during their trip.

On a lighter note, VBS will be taking place in an area called The Ball Field and ministry has not happened here for about a year, but the kids have been asking and praying for something here and we are their answered pray! Please join us in prayer they go out and minister to a group of children so eager and ready for the Good News! – Misty R.
