Jamaica Family Trip

July 1 - July 8, 2017

This is a trip designed specifically for families! This team will have the opportunity to build a small home for a Jamaican family in need. The children going on this trip help with painting the walls of the home and have the chance to meet many Jamaican children in the community. At the work site, the children play games and color with one another, forming lasting friendships. The adults work alongside Jamaican men in the community to help put the home together - this includes sawing, nailing, and hammering. In the afternoon, our team facilitates a Children's Bible Time where stories, crafts, games and songs are shared with Jamaican children. Also, our team serves others by purchasing and delivering baskets of food to the most vulnerable and needy - the elderly, physically challenged and single mothers. This is Northland's fifth year returning to Jamaica with a family trip and we look forward to your family serving along with us! 

Age minimum:  5 years old (with an adult)  THIS TRIP IS OPEN TO FAMILIES ONLY. 

Team size:  Up to 50 people (including children)

THERE WILL BE AN INFORMATIONAL MEETING FOR THIS TRIP SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2017 FROM 12:30 - 1:30 IN ROOM 4204. YOU CAN REGISTER FOR THE MEETING HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/jamaica-family-short-term-mission-trip-informational-meeting-registration-31132771959
