Hello, and welcome to TKCS 2015 missions trip to Jamaica! I am Joe Lombardo. My wife Brianna and I are leading our second trip to the Caribbean. This time we are joined by 11 of Kings' finest high school students: Ryan Anderson, Matt Buchan, Esther Cho, Rachel Conover, Torie Friend, Juliana Holloway, Molly Kepner, Christine Panagotopulos, Matt Savarese, Cole Trimble, and Rachel Whitbeck
We will be staying with Jim and Penie Koch, missionaries stationed in Jamaica through Kingdom Builders Ministry. In our travels, we will be doing everything we can to serve the people of Whitehouse, Jamaica and its surrounding areas. Despite the glimpse that most of the Western World has at Jamaica, spots away from the resorts and major cities are very close to third-world. Everyday items that we expect to be in our homes are not readily available to the people. As a team, we will be assisting in home-building construction, as well as sharing supplies from the states (toiletries, toys, clothes) with hospitals, nursing homes, and children. While we have led this trip before, no two are alike, and we are very eager as a team to be instructed to serve and love these people in any way needed.
So, if you haven't already, be sure to add your email to the list for post updates from Brianna/I and the students. If the internet is as available as it was last time, we will hopefully be posting at least twice a day! Please be sure to keep this ministry in prayer through the days of our service. Thank you for your support!
