The Teen Perspective on the Jamaica Mission Trip

As one of the parents who traveled to Jamaica with The Crossing, I think I speak for many of us when I say that sharing the experience with my own daughters had a deep impact on me – as a mother, certainly, but also as a believer in God’s Word. I found that, taken out

Missions Prayer Needs:

  • Pray for Rob & Tündi Futo and their girls as they visit family, connect to their sending agency, and to their US supporters. They need travel mercies and restoration during their US stay. Pray for them to be sustained and strengthened through their time of travels.
  • Pray for The Wallace family from Kenya. They just spent a week at The Crossing volunteering with Kids Club and are also traveling much this summer. They could also use travel mercies on their journeys. Pray for their visits with supporting churches, for their needed support to be met, for their family to be refreshed and their strength restored.
  • Pray for kids and families who may have heard the gospel for the first time through attending Kids Club this week. Pray for God to draw their hearts to himself, for him to open them to the truth of the gospel, for him to grant them grace to believe, and grow them into sons and daughters who walk with him in faith.
  • Pray for the Jamaica Student-Parent Mission Team 2018. The team leaves Sunday to serve with Won by One in Harmons, Jamaica. Pray for God to work in many hearts, for relationships to be strengthened, for eyes to be opened to the gospel of Jesus, for much good to be done among the people of Harmons, for compassion and encouragement to be poured out to those who suffer.
  • Pray for Ron & Sally Widbin in Antigua Guatemala & other ministry partners including ASELSI . They are safe, so far, and actively responding to the aftermath and continued impact of the Volcano del Fuego eruptions. Pray for endurance and courage, hope and resilience as they strive to help in the midst of such terrible devastation.
  • Pray for the Summer Guatemala Team 2018 as they prepare to travel to Chichicastenango, Guatemala. They will be working with ASELSI several hours travel away from the area of the volcano. However, the eruptions have disrupted Guatemala in many ways including air travel. The evolving situation may impact their trip.

Cor Update: 2017 in Review

As we look back on 2017, and scroll through pictures and videos of all the things we have been able to experience with the Cor guys, we can’t help but stop and realize all the support and love people have poured into Cor and our students throughout the year. Since our last update in the Spring of 2017, so much has happened. We have walked through hard situations with kids, cheered them on during athletic competitions and academic achievements, and have watched them grow into a family of boys that support and encourage each other like brothers. We know that none of this would be possible without people like you, and for that we are incredibly thankful. Enjoy a glimpse of what life has been like at Cor for the last 6 months, and thank you again for all of the food, tutoring, encouraging talks, financial support, and love you have poured into Cor this year! – Travis, Angie and Jared
