BENEFITING: SPRING HILL COLLEGE

THE STORY:

During Mardi Gras break, March 1-8, 2014 a group of ten students and two faculty and staff members from Spring Hill will travel to Montego Bay, Jamaica.   This trip is a part of Campus Ministry’s International Service Immersion Program, in which a total of five groups of 58 students, faculty and staff will work with ministries in Belize, Nicaragua, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.

Our trip to Montego Bay will partner with Mustard Seed International, an organization with the mission to provide communities and medical service to handicapped, abandoned, and marginalized children.   Mustard Seed was one of the first organizations in Jamaica to provide a safe haven to children who had been abandoned because of their disabilities.   Their original community in Kingston has now expanded to several ministries throughout Central America and the Caribbean.  They care for children with intellectual and physical disabilities, children and infants with HIV/AIDs, and teenage mothers in crisis pregnancies.   Our work with this inspirational ministry will be to help the children with day to day activities and to do a work project for their community in Montego Bay. 

Preparation for this incredible experience has already begun.  Our group is meeting weekly to learn about the culture and the people of Jamaica.  We are planning to do service with a local organization that works with people with disabilities and we are fundraising towards the cost of our trip.  We believe through building relationships and getting to understand others on the most human level, we will be guided to a greater sense of serving others. We are excited about getting to know the community we have formed at Spring Hill and the people we will encounter in Montego Bay. Our college calls us to “become men and women in the service of others,” and we are proud to give time to work alongside the poor in Jamaica.

Our immersion trips rely greatly on fund-raising and the generosity of family and friends. One hundred percent of the money collected will directly fund our efforts to work with the poor. Mustard Seed asks that each person raise $1,000 to support the cost of hosting us and to contribute to their ministries.  The organization uses the money we donate to sustain the medical care they give to the children they serve and to fund work projects for their communities.  The total amount to send one person on this trip is $1800, which includes this $1,000 donation to Mustard Seed.  

This on-line fundraiser is an integral part of our program. All of the money collected will be shared among all of the participants going on trips. This is part of our community-building and ensures that any student who wishes to participate in the trips can afford to do so. 

No amount you can give is too small! Whatever you can manage – $25, $50, $100 – anything you donate, will make a difference! Even if you are unable to make a monetary donation, please remember our work in your prayers and pray for the success of these journeys we are making to serve others.  Thank you for visiting our Crowdrise page.
