Friends of Jamaica LCMS Missions

Winter 2020 Update

Work Update

We thank the Lord for the many individuals and teams that came to Jamaica in 2019 to work on our ministry centre, the Parade Gardens School location, and to help with the ongoing work of ministry in Kingston. We would love to have some additional help in 2020 and beyond. If you have a team interested in serving, please contact Erin Mackenzie, our short term team coordinator for the region. 

We also thank those whose generous contributions have enabled us to get Parade Gardens Lutheran School up and running. There are currently just shy of 30 students enrolled. Already two families have come to Faith Lutheran Church for worship. The annual budget for the school is $12,000 US, and we raised sufficient funds to cover the 2020-2021 school year! Contributions to our Friends of Jamaica “FORO” (see the Big Orange Button) will help us continue operating the school into the next years, and expanding operations if possible.

Pastor’s Update

From Rev. Obot Ite

The work of the ministry is progressing by the grace of God in Jamaica through our… outreach effort… in Kingston areas and Bois Content, St. Catherine. With the adoption of Parade Gardens Lutheran Preschool, we are grateful to God for expanding our ministry to the residents of Parade Gardens, who may not have had direct contact with us and the church. We are still in the process of building relationship while planting seeds of the Gospel. We are trusting God for a bountiful harvest as His Word grows among the people of Jamaica. We introduced a special evangelism course for both congregations and are working on inspiring every member to engage in witnessing. A young man from Bois Content Mission indicated interest to be trained as an evangelist. It is our plan to revisit a weekly Bible Study at St. Andrew’s congregation, implement and sustain a monthly Prayer Service as had been happening at Faith’s over the years. The weekly Sunday programme at Faith’s is ongoing, and we intend to extend our materials and supplies to the preschool.

The next Friends of Jamaica meetings are scheduld for: 

Kingston, Jamaica
April 18-19, 2020
