Jamaica, Through My Eyes
by Maggie Jenkins
In May, 2012, the Central California Nazarene District sent a unique work and witness team to Burnt Savannah, Jamaica. The team consisted of our District Superintendent, Rob Songer, our district work and witness leader Chuck Bunch, and ten other Pastors, eight senior pastors, one children’s pastor, and myself, a youth pastor. This is my story of the mission trip. This is the way I experienced Jamaica and the way Jamaica has forever touched my soul.
5/22/12-What I pray for the most during this journey can be found in a popular song by Hillsong, Hosanna, “Open up my eyes to the things unseen. Show me how to love like you have loved me.”

When the tornado hit the city of Joplin, Missouri, destroying 2,000 buildings, most of which were homes, survivors who had nothing were giving basic needs in Crisis Care Kits because of people like you. Those who found themselves instantly homeless were provided with the necessities of life through the giving of 480,689 Crisis Care Kits from 2000-2010, and are still providing for the basic needs of people in tragic situations all over the world. Before the next disaster hits---more Crisis Care Kits are needed! WE NEED YOU!!

CCKs continue to meet the needs around the world. The kits have gone to places like Belize, California, Donimican Republic, Greensburg, KS, Haiti, Jamaica, Jordon, Louisiana, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Ukraine and Zambia. Your generosity makes an incredivle difference!
Each local church can join in by donating enough kits to fill at least one banana box, that's 6 CCKs. Small churches may combine efforts with others to fill banana boxes with CCKs.
There are not enough kits. When disasters occur around the world, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Incorporated (NCMI) and Nazarene Missions International (NMI) must have kits available to send out immediately as the need arises. Please help make this possible!
