Coming from all over the US our 2015 mission team will meet this Saturday, July 18th in Jamaica to serve as ARK Angel Network with our IsleGo Missions partners. The open group of twenty includes family, friends, and returning volunteers we are blessed to serve with. Our work will focus on people in the Seville Heights and Steertown communities with two main projects:
Building a house for Vanessa (Seville Heights):
IsleGo has identified a young woman, Vanessa, who is in desperate need of a house. She has been caring for her niece along with her own three children in less than desirable living conditions. Recently, she was notified by the government agency that the children will be taken from her if she does not find a home with more space by July 30th. Thankfully donations have provided the additional money needed for our team to build a house and beat the deadline! Just in time to avoid any risk of sending her niece back to an uncle who had molested her.
Backpacks for our Bright Beginner kids (Steertown):
Our amazing team raised money and collected supplies to give backpacks to kids enrolled at the Bright Beginner Kindergarten. Last year our 2014 mission team completed an addition to the school including stairs up to code. Let’s hope the children will come to meet us during our visit!
