We are putting together an ADULT TEAM (ages 18 & older) for our mission to Jamaica from November 24 through December 1, 2018.
Cost of flight from BWI to MBJ is $475. Each adult is also responsible for raising $950 which goes directly to Mustard Seed. Participants must go for the entire week. The mission will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limit of 12 females and 12 males.
Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is an international Catholic nonprofit dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations throughout the developing world. MSC began in 1978 as a home for a handful of children with disabilities who had been abandoned to the streets of Jamaica. Today, MSC provides loving and lifelong care to over 600 children and adults with disabilities, children affected by HIV/AIDS, and young mothers in crisis across Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Zimbabwe, and Malawi.
Our mission week will be spent at an MSC community called Jacob’s Ladder, located just outside Moneague, Jamaica. Jacob’s Ladder provides shelter, health care, and community to 95 adult residents with varying degrees of developmental disabilities. While at Jacob’s Ladder, we will participate in small work projects, have time for group prayer, reflection, and sharing, and most of all we will spend time getting to know the residents.
