A Heart for Jamaica

Lifting Jamaican children and families through educational and spiritual transformation.

What started as a short-term mission trip for the Chase family to Robin’s Nest Children’s Home is being transformed into a full-fledged mission to and in Jamaica. In these seven years we have seen quite a bit of transformation and stand in awe of our great God and His great love for this island. Last year we made strides in the spiritual realm with many children and adults committing their lives to Christ and making a public display of that commitment through Baptism. We have been able to follow up with many and hear how they are walking that commitment out. We have even heard of another baptism after we left! God is moving in this village and we are so honored to be a part of it. Each year our team looks very different and we always look forward to seeing how God shapes it.

This year our team will go back to Jamaica July 6 to July 13. We will spend a majority of our time at Whitehouse in Montego Bay. This is an impoverished fishing village down by the beautiful waters of Jamaica. While there, we will spend our mornings at the basic school in the village doing CVBS. We are excited to bus over children from Flanker (another squatting village across the highway) as we have done for the two last years. We will then spend the afternoons working on the school to make much needed improvements, spending quality time with children, visiting and praying with folks in the village and providing a bible study for the ladies and men. We have discovered that our most important mission is building relationships and increasing the Kingdom. We will also provide the families in the village with grocery bags of food, clothing, and school supplies. Most importantly we will be sharing the love of Jesus with them. As always we are keeping our eyes fixed on him and moving forward trusting through His divine power we have all that we need and are so thankful to be called by his own glory and goodness!
