Good afternoon from Texarkana, TX. My name is Chris Haidet and I am the Student Ministries Pastor here at Heritage Church. I will be leading the 2019 Mission Team to Jamaica. This will be my 13th team to Jamaica and my 48th mission team led overall. We’ve taken teams all over the world to many countries and cultures, but Jamaica is something special. We have a full schedule this year, ministering in schools, prisons, hospitals, orphanages, and on the streets. Jamaica offers us full access to share the gospel and connect people to Jesus throughout the island as we partner with NextGen Missions and Jamaica Youth for Christ.
Starting on June the 11th, you can follow this daily blog and see pictures and videos of what God is doing through our team. Here is a link to our 16 team members where you can read their bio’s, see their picture, and over the next few days, follow their fundraising tracker as we near departure. Our team has been working hard fundraising, practicing their dramas, puppets, songs, and testimonies. Our team is growing close as one family and I am super excited to see the fruits of their labor. PLEASE be in prayer that God uses this team to reach the spiritually dying people on the island as well as using this team to be a blessing to the disadvantaged and struggling people we come into contact with. Pray for the health and safety of the team as we travel and while we are there, and please pray for those still in need of financial support to get them across the finish line.
If you received this blog link, that means one or more of our team members have been blessed by either a financial donation, commitment to prayer, or both. Your support means the world to this team and I want to personally thank you! It is because of your prayers and generosity that this team is able to go, THANK YOU!!! Here are some pre-trip pictures of our team and don’t forget to check in daily and comment. GOD BLESS!!!
