Jamaica

Since 1990, World Servants has partnered with Pastor Leroy Gordon and his wife, Marcia, who lead the Christian Community Fellowship Church. Our ministry efforts are focused on the Jamaican children:

  • Volunteering at several public school projects
  • Working at an orphanage
  • Building two schools for the deaf
  • Renovating schools around the parish
  • Completing a community center

 

According to Jamaica’s Prime Minister Bruce Golding the country’s poverty rate has become a national crisis, jumping to 16.5 percent. Half a million Jamaicans deal daily with poor housing, limited access to food, waterborne illnesses due to dirty water and less than adequate education.

In Jamaica, mission teams live in the community and walk between lodging and ministry activities every day, which is a great way to get to know people and create valuable relationships. Community members work right alongside teams on construction projects.

World Servants mission experiences to Jamaica are seven days in duration, with four days in the community working on a construction project, participating in Kids’ Club (VBS) and going on home visits to see firsthand what life is like in rural Jamaica.

Spring Break in Jamaica

by Pattie Juarez

What do you get when you have 3 teachers and 17 students in Catadupa, Jamaica during Spring Break? You get a lot of serving going on!

Pastor Leroy, our ministry partner Christian Fellowship Church, said "This World Servant’s team blessed our church, as well as the children who attend this basic school (ages 3 to 6 years old). Prior to the team’s arrival the school roof leaked so badly we had to cancel school activities. Now, with the new cement roof, we have no leaking and no worries when the hurricanes come.”

“The new roof will also allow us to make plans to someday expand the school, which means more children will have the best start in life possible because they will have an education. All children are accepted at Christian Fellowship School if we have room.”

World Servants gives thanks to the students and teachers who served in Catadupa and celebrated Easter Sunday with their new friends at Christian Fellowship Church. Thank you for making a big difference for this community, which will continue well into the future.
