Enjoying the view and breeze!

by Garth Lewis | June 2, 2018 3:49 PM

After sitting back for 45 minutes enjoying the beautiful views of Jamaica we're finally here at out camp site that we'll be staying for the week and serving the community of Salt Marsh in the Parish of Falmouth Trelawny, we are now taking in the cool cool breeze of the mountains along with the views! Oh what a beauty it is!! #thepelicanlife 

Enjoying the view and breeze!

God is simply amazing!

by Garth Lewis | June 2, 2018 3:56 PM

As we settle in our camp site we are elated to have our hearts being blessed by one of our team members Jimmy giving his testimony of what happened on his plane ride to Jamaica as he spoke to a young lady about Christ. He humbled himself as God used him to minister to this young lady not knowing a thing about her or her background but being the hands and feet of Christ and being selfless! That's a servants heart! Being the hands and feets of Christ! 
God is simply amazing!

Holy Spirit Rain down!

by Garth Lewis | June 3, 2018 12:11 PM

Today as we worship together as one body at Jacob's Well in Salt Marsh we asked God's Holy Spirit to rain down on us, we're so thankful for the opportunity to worship with our brothers and sisters in Christ!

'Come Let Us Worship Together'

by Kareen Hunter | June 4, 2018 9:47 AM

No better way to begin the day than with worship. Indeed we are humbled and blessed to be apart of the children's morning devotion. To see the joy on their little faces and the ways in which their little eyes were filled with life and love for Jesus was amazing.. The team's day is off to a beautiful start and to God be all the glory. We anticipate what the day has to offer for us. God is indeed in our midst. #ChildLikeFaith. #ThePelicanLife.

Being flexible

by Garth Lewis | June 4, 2018 7:41 PM

On the mission field we ought to be flexible! Our first day of school ministries allowed us to regroup, rethink, and be flexible as it was scheduled for us to only do school ministries today however, we did both school ministries and started our painting project it was a very successful and productive day! God is good! God is great!! #thepelicanlife

Being flexible

'Good morning Hug'

by Kareen Hunter | June 5, 2018 12:14 PM

Big hugs coming from a small heart. What a beautiful way to be greeted. One of our team members was greeted with one of the biggest hugs possible from this gorgeous little angel at the Jacob's Well Basic School. The love of God is truly evident in this place and among these little angels. P.S Jesus loves the little children. #ThePelicanLife

Making Memories That Last a Lifetime

by Crissa Lord | June 6, 2018 9:33 PM

As we wrap up our final day at the school and orphanage, we smile because these children have been etched in our hearts forever. The team has done an amazing job working together and being flexible saying, "no problem man".

It wasn't easy but by God's grace we did it. We thank the Lord for this amazing opportunity to serve Him and for our youth to experience something greater than themselves. The Lord is loved, lives are changed and we can't wait for the next God adventure while still enjoying the precious company of each other and our friends from Crossroads Church in Colorado. 

Making Memories That Last a Lifetime

Nobody works for God for nothing!

by Garth Lewis | June 6, 2018 10:17 PM

After working for the 3 days painting and teaching the kids we've come to the last of it, complete the painting project and leaving a huge impact on the kids as they do the same for us and finding a new family in Christ . We were also rewarded with a certificate of there appreciation and love for helping them out throughout this week. God is good!

Leadership at its finest

by Kelly Lucas | June 7, 2018 3:54 PM

I've heard it said... leadership is influence. This team of leaders we have had this week are God's best. They have set an example in their speech, their kindness, their love, their support, and their love for God. It's been amazing to see them wholeheartedly love and serve others. Matthew 23:11 says the greatest among you will be the servant of all. They are truly the greatest! 

Thank you to each one of you for serving us and loving us! You are the greatest! 

Leadership at its finest
