Stricken by natural disasters, political unrest and poverty, the island nation of Haiti needs compassionate outreach, as Rev. Pam Carter has experienced firsthand while in mission there.
Taking up the call, Beach Church Jacksonville invited young adults to join them on a trip to help Haiti. The purpose of the mission was exploratory.
In their invitation, they explained: “We are going to Haiti with open hearts and open minds, seeking to see a different side of missions and this nation. Our goal is to go as Spirit-led learners seeking the Lord and all that He desires to teach and show us as we investigate missional opportunities. We hope to explore, investigate, and learn more about God’s work in Haiti and how we as a church might be more effective in our efforts at home and around the globe.
“We will engage in meaningful and focused dialogue, hoping to expand our thoughts and actions towards missions. We will spend time in prayer and conversation with locals and missionaries, seeking to see the Kingdom of heaven come in the name of Jesus.”
