BENEFITING: SOUND WORDS

Project Jamaica Team

THE STORY:

On the island of Jamaica, in the West Indies, we are fortunate to have a growing number of children attend school. As we all know, children need to have basic educational skills in order to become productive adults and compete effectively in this global society. Many of the schools in Jamaica, however, are impoverished and lack the resources needed to provide basic educational needs. They are without everyday supplies such as pens, pencils, paper, rulers, and notebooks which are not only essential to education, but also stimulate the creativity and the imagination of these children. Without these supplies, their options are extremely limited.
Members of Sound Word Ministries in Dayton, Ohio, Trinity Baptist Church of Brooklyn, NY and Daughters of the Gospel have formed a coalition to assist the children and local congregants of Freetown, Jamaica located in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica. We represent the “Project Jamaica Team” and have organized a mission trip for July 2013 where we will distribute school supplies for 700-900 youth, provide medical/nutritional and hygienic counseling and supplies, and most importantly, share the gospel through Bible teaching, prayer and praise and worship. This local Freetown, Jamaica church is not only instrumental in providing a spiritual guidepost for the community, but also provides refuge for many children and families in the community. In addition to the school supplies, we intend to replace the church’s broken benches/chairs so members can have comfortable seating as the word of God is preached.
In preparation for our trip and to assist us in this effort, we are stepping out on faith and have set a goal to raise an additional $10,000.00 by June 15th, and are reaching out to all of you for assistance and support of this effort. The composition of our team speaks to how God responds and brings together those who open their hearts and strive to fulfill His commandment to love and help one another. Won’t you help us to “reach out and touch somebody in need” by making a donation today?
If you have questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Jasmine Lashley, Chair, Project Jamaica Team at (917) 579-7640. Thank you in advance for your time, consideration and support.

His Grace & Blessings,
