With approximately 50 days until the execution of the Mission Project 2019 programme, that runs between January 19 and February 9, 2019, churches are embarking on numerous community outreach projects and healthy lifestyle promotion initiatives, and are impacting lives across the West Jamaica Conference. This is in keeping with the theme: “Wholistic Health for personal and National Transformation.”
The Seventh-day Adventist Congregations in Cave, Granville, Cornwall Mountain and Lambs River have shared with us a few of the activities that they have planned and executed in preparation for next year’s programme. We hope that as you read and view you will be inspired to do your part wherever you are in the Conference.
The events are organized according to the time that they occurred, starting with the latest.
Seaford Town District conducted two health fairs in the District; at the Lambs River, Community Centre put on by the Lambs River Church and at the Cornwall Mountain Primary organized by the Cornwall Mountain congregation.
Over 50 persons received medical attention and were given hot meals at the Cornwall Mountain site. While over in Lambs River, community members were empowered with special presentations from the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) and over 70 persons were beneficiaries of various health checks, massages, foot spa treatments and other health-related services.
Members of the Cave church have been volunteering their time to conduct devotion at the Cave Basic School. They utilized the opportunity to encourage children to make healthier meal choices.
As part of the thrust to impact communities with the health message, the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Granville, St. James led by the Youth Department, hosted its Health and Wellness Fair on November 11, 2018, on the Church grounds. The initiative saw over seventy (70) persons benefiting from free medical screenings, massage therapy and free consultations from various health and wellness providers.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church, Cave conducted a grand health fair on Sunday, October 28 in Hopewell, Cave Mountain, Westmoreland. Community members had access to free blood pressure and blood sugar testing, massage therapy, natural juices, and a wealth of knowledge and expertise from a certified medical missionary, Mr. Parchment.
The Doctor was happy to share his knowledge on plants and herbs with the rapt audience on location. A representative from the Western Regional Health Authority, Mr. Gerrard Miller, was also on location to facilitate a talk-back session with community members.
The members of the Church were out in the community of Cave on Sabbath, October 27, distributing bread to needy members of the area. Members were asked to contribute at least one loaf of bread, that was to be shared with the different homes.
