Bahamas 2009 Mission Thoughts Continued

What I've recently learned about the Bahamas:
  • It's a commonwealth

  • People drive on the left side of the road

  • It's an archipelago consisting of 2000 cays and 700 islands

  • They say "If the U.S. sneezes the Bahamas gets a cold."

  • There are significant numbers of Haitian refugees

  • It's a very beautiful place and some of the friendliest people I've ever met!
In addition to the work next summer in Nassau there are also options throughout the year on the various islands through Mission Encounter and through the Bahamas Methodist Habitat. This would be ideal for college or adult teams as there are needs in construction, children's ministry, and general community ministries. Abe and his team with Bahamas Methodist Habitat are well prepared for groups interested in both construction and other ministries. See for contact information and team application packets.
