In August 2013, Michelle and I made the decision to join Youth With A Mission, Mobay! We are moving our family to live on the YWAM campus in Reading, a community just outside Montego Bay (about 25 min. from airport). While we are trusting in the Lord to determine the amount of time spent there, we are anticipating 3 to 5 years.
Here is a brief rundown of what we hope to do there: work with the Homes of Hope program building houses for the needy/homeless, help students at the Tower Hill Primary School, and begin a skills training center to teach young Jamaicans woodworking. There is much opportunity for ministry there, and we are anxious to develop relationships, and see what God has in store.
We are currently in a season of fundraising, speaking at churches and small-groups to share our vision, as well as trying to eliminate a lot of our unneeded "stuff." The house we will be moving into is available in March, so we hope to be purchasing our one-way tickets soon!
As you can see in the picture, we are not far from the coast; in fact, we have a great view of ships coming in from our new front yard! It is a three-bedroom house, with a nice kitchen and living room. We are hopeful to have many visitors... so we plan to get a big van!
God is our provider, and we will be sharing more stories of how He continues to amaze us!
