Countdown to Caribbean 2016!
News from Cayman Island

80% of Work Completion on West Bay SDA Church
One of our Mission projects in Cayman Islands on 2012 was helping out with spreading out gravel in the West Bay SDA Church.

At this time, the church is in its advanced stage of construction, with generally basic details like tiling floor, install electrical fixtures and complete the air condition system among others. Let us continue to pray for our brothers and sisters of West Bay SDA Church in the process of completing their place of worship.
West Bay SDA Church - 80% Work Completion
Who are they?
In this section you will learn a little more about our team for Caribbean 2016, and who is involved in the different aspects of the event.

Here I am Lord. Send me!

A familiar verse and a familiar Bible song, "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" (Isaiah 6: 8, NIV) Words that have been the watchwords of my life throughout ministry. 

It is an approach I'm still learning to adopt from my early years in University. Before getting into literature evangelism, medical evangelism and now SanareLife, a healthly lifestyle consultancy, I was dedicated to playing football. I also had a passion for animals and wanted to be an environmentalist traveling the world to save animals and more

Laura Becker - Cayman Islands Mission Coordinator
Laura is our host in the beautiful island of Grand Cayman. This will be her 4th time coordinating projects on this island for Cruise with a Mission. Grandmother of seven wonderful grandchildren, she babysits and does elder-care near the area of Collegedale, Tennessee.

In her words: " I have immensely enjoyed the time getting to know the wonderful people on the island. They have become family!

You will notice most of the places are non-Adventist. CWM has given the opportunity for these entities to interact with the Adventists, and they have been impressed with the volunteers, who, cheerfully and willingly, give of their time, instead of just having fun off-shore. You are making a difference!

Looking forward to December 15!
God Bless :)"

Thank you Laura for all you do towards our ministry!
