Our ministry here is a small and intimate where relationships are important. The island communities are not anything like the big city locations. Many of the families here have been part of this small community for generations. This makes breaking into these families difficult because you are seen as an outsider. This is why we focus on small groups that can provide an intimate atmosphere that can be positive and uplifting. The culture here has a lot of negative attitudes built into it. It is well known that your life is worthless and individuals are dispensable. This is one reason there is a lot of domestic violence in the general society, and the newspaper is filled with photos of people assassinated on a daily basis. Our message that Jesus loves you and His sacrifice of His life to redeem you is one that is counter culture. One way to communicate the Grace Of Jesus is to develop a deep loving relationship with these people with Grace at the core of the relationship. The lives of these people are so filled with baggage that no one wants to love them as they are, but we do! Please pray that we have the strength to demonstrate the Grace of Christ as we live out our faith in this small band of believers.
