Tentative Upcoming W&W Trips for 2017
Burnt Savannah, Jamaica
Update from Brad on the April W&W trip:
Pastor Phil and church,
We arrived safely on Monday and got to the Mission House around 5:00pm. We got through customs with our 27 bags of luggage. We didn't get searched. Our van was packed in every empty space with luggage.
On Tuesday Dave, Milt and Chase started construction in the top floor of the Gamertsfelder putting in offices. It was a huge empty room and now there are many partitions with Sheetrock going up. Stuart, Nancy and Nikki ran a clinic in the morning at the annex of the church and in the Gamertsfelder in the afternoon. Lori, Linda and I went to Burnt Savannah Nazarene church and ran our educational program for about 25 children. We provided snack, a message and handed out school supplies.
On Wednesday the guys continued with the construction. The rest of us went to Mount Matthew Nazarene church. Stuart and Nancy checked 67 children and adults for blood pressure and diabetes. Nikki gave a presentation concerning information about diabetes. We ran a program for 45 children, wow! It was totally awesome! But we were tired.
Today, Stuart, Nancy and Nikki went to a diabetes convention in the northern part of the island. They will be back late. The guys are really moving along on the construction project. Lori, Linda and I are going to Mount Grace Nazarene church. There should be around 25 children.
Tomorrow we are taking a break and doing something touristy. Saturday morning Rev. Brown has a pastor's conference. He has asked Nikki, Lori and I to go along. Nikki is going to give her presentation about diabetes and explain about how to use the Stevia sweetener. We will explain our program that we do for children. Also we can take our extra school supplies and hand it out to the more rural church pastors.
On Sunday Dave and Linda are singing with the choir. The LORD has given me a short message to share with the congregation.
All is well, praise GOD. Thanks for the prayers. We have so much to share.

GOD IS AWESOME!!!
HELPING HANDS 4 JESUS – THANK YOU
The amount of school supplies and toiletries collected from our church far exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much to those that contributed with supplies, as well as those who supported us financially towards shipping costs and baggage fees, and for other donated items to use or to hand out. Now all of the children that we will be working with will be able to start school with items that are needed. May God bless you richly for your kindness and generosity.
VBS KIDS - THANK YOU
What an incredible surprise to find out that $517.40 was collected towards textbooks and uniforms for the students in Jamaica! This amount will be able to give 40 students either a textbook or their uniforms that they would not have been able to get on their own. Thank you so much to all the kids (and parents!), and VBS crew for your generous support! A special thank you to Tiffany Belokur for making this, this year's goal.
