VBS Jamaica 2023
Join us for Vacation Bible School in Jamaica July 1-8, 2023! VBS is always fun and richly fulfilling. We have been leading teams down to Jamaica for over 27 years and we have conducted over 20 Vacation Bible Schools! We go to the poorest part of Jamaica where there is little crime, but many poor children are needing your love.
The two trip leaders have been to this part of Jamaica over a combined 100 times. So, we know the area, know the people, know many churches, and the people know us. Our Jamaican associate wants us to do VBS in as many locations as possible because she wants every Jamaican child to experience an American led VBS. As a result, some weeks we have done mini-VBS's in as many as 6 locations.
Covid changed that and for the last 3 years, we have not had VBS in Jamaica. So, there are hundreds of children who will experience their first VBS on this trip. Also, we hope to train the local children ministry leaders to conduct their own VBS in case we cannot return in the future. To that end, we will also be taking extra VBS materials to warehouse for that eventuality.
This trip is being sponsored by Briarwood Presbyterian Church; however, with two weeks, there will be room for others to go and bless these children.
The trip will be $1,700 US for one week. Briarwood members may be eligible for a scholarship up to 20% of the Toal cost.
