Mission Trips Call on PBA Students
This December, a group of six Palm Beach Atlantic students will submerge themselves into the Jamaican culture in Montego Bay and Lambs River, Jamaica, on a mission trip set for December 27 through January 6.
Students will participate in prayer walks, street evangelism, light construction work and a kid's club for special needs children from an orphanage. The construction will lay the groundwork for a children's center, a mission home and safe place.
“I am really looking forward to working with the orphans in Jamaica and getting close with the team of students,” says team leader Jenny Johnson, senior forensic science and psychology major from Minnesota.
Senior Kayla Webbe from Carrabelle, Florida, has gone on this trip for the past three years and experienced great relationships, breathtaking views and unforgettable lessons. Majoring in art and cross cultural studies, Webbe says that experiencing the culture has taught her more about authentic joyfulness than any other.
2AllNations is the partner organization for the trip, organizing the itinerary throughout the week and a half. The organization seeks to glorify God by helping missionaries to respond obediently to our Lord’s commission to witness to the good news of God’s Kingdom and make disciples of all nations.
The David and Leighan Rinker Center for Experiential Learning manages this trip as well as the Spring Break mission trips to Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, Haiti, Guyana and Panama. Students raise their own support; friends of the University who wish to assist them financially can do so through online giving.
