Mission Trip Journey

Categories: Evangelism,Mission,Outreach

June 18, 2017, day one

We traveled to BWI airport this morning with 19 members from our church. We flew to Nassau in the Bahamas, then we took a small puddle jumper airplane to the island of the Eleuthera. Once we got there we rode a school bus to Bahamas Methodist Habitat. We are staying in what is similar to dorm rooms. We had a great dinner of barbecue chicken and pineapple upside down cake. Afterward, we all pitched in with the chores. Then we had devotions. Then we took a dip in the Caribbean Sea. We will be up by 6 AM tomorrow for half of us to work construction and the other half to put on a Bible school program for the local kids. Thanks for all the prayers!

June 22, 2017 – Day Five Mission Trip

Today was our last work day. All of the work crews finished their respective projects and the Bible school crew finished up their second phase of VBS. Everyone very much enjoyed their week of service projects and making new friends with the locals. We are sad to be finishing up and leaving soon. After work today we visited the beach Co Co de Mama for the second time. The water was crystal clear, shallow, and there weren’t any waves. It was perfect for exploring and we found many starfish. This evening after dinner we had Culture Night. This was by far the evening highlight of our week. We enjoying hearing our sister church sing ad well as some local young ladies. Wade, the construction leader made us conch salad and everyone had a taste. He put on a great show chopping the fruit and veggies super fast. There was a lady Sheila who was here braiding all the girls’ hair for several hours. Tomorrow is our excursion day which we are all looking forward to!

June 23, 2017 – Day Six Mission Trip
Today was our “free” day, our excursion day as they call it here at BMH. We chose to go to the North end of Eleuthera and cross over the “Glass Window”. This is about a 30 ft wide bridge where you have the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other. It was an awesome sight! Then we went to a couple sightseeing places. The first stop was Blue Hole which was a very deep cavernous hole that was a deep, dark blue. Then we went to Preachers Cave which was where settlers first came ashore. Our best part of the day was traveling around the island, Spanish Wells. We got there by Ferry Boat and we spent the day exploring in golf carts. It was loads of fun! Tomorrow we leave BMH around 11am and return to BWI around 7pm. We sure are going to miss it here. It feels bittersweet….just like leaving summer camp.
