GCS Missions Trip – Jamaica
Where: Rantule, Jamaica (one hour outside Montego Bay)
What: We will have several ministry opportunities while in the country. Jamaica allows mission groups to come into elementary and secondary schools and present the gospel. In addition, we will help out a local church with some work projects. The ministry opportunities give the students a chance to see immediate results of their labors, and the work projects enable students to be part of the work of Christ which will continue long after we leave.
Accomodations: The students stay in the dorms of a small Bible college. Girls and boys are separated into two different dorms. The college is very secure and the building is locked during the day while the students are at work projects or ministering in the surrounding communities. There is electricty and running water, but not hot water. While in country, the students live just like the Jamaican people. Accommodations, food, and transportation are all planned to give the students a first-hand experience of what it is like to live in a developing country. We will plan some fun outings for the students, but the main focus of the trip is to live, minister, and serve cross-culturally.

Other Support Opportunities: We have been informed of needs in Jamaica that we would like to try to meet. We would like to take new or used soccer shoes (cleats) to be given to Fairview Baptist Bible College for giving to nationals that need them at the Christian soccer camps they have every summer. We are also accepting donations for books for the college library, and books to be given to the elementary schools where we will be ministering.
