Truth Corps 2019

On July the 6th, the 2019 Truth Corps team started a three and-a-half week adventure to serve our host Ecclesias and spread the Good News of the Kingdom of God.

This year, our team spent time in the Pomona and San Diego Ecclesias in California and at the Broughton Ecclesia in Jamaica. The team consisted of Brothers: Erick Cervantes, Micah Hewitson, Brandon Hefner and Micah Luff; and Sisters: Sarah Perry, Lonti Shindano, Claire Robinson and Rhiannon Bourke. We were later joined in Jamaica by Sister Sarah Kohlman and Brother and Sister Matt and Cilla Tuckson. Our team was led by Brother Dave and Sister Cassie Giordano for our time in California and by Brother Dana Kohlman in Jamaica.

My First Trip to Jamaica

Going to the Easter Youth Camp in Jamaica was full of firsts for me. It was my first time on a plane, first time experiencing a new culture in a different country, and the first time I taught a kids’ class by myself. I was terrified before the trip and a big part of me didn’t want to go. I was scared that I would be lost and confused in this new country. I didn’t know if I would be able to teach a kids’ class and I didn’t know what the people were like, which is very scary for me personally.

Penny now widowed, lives on the island with her daughter Tami close by.  Her home was cheerfully opened for the Bahamas fraternal which included accommodations for Bro. Kemraj and Sis. Chandra Ramnath who travelled on Saturday from Grand Bahama.  Sis. Penny provided pickup service from the airport, accommodations, and lots of great food. We were joined by Sis. Maudelin December’s son for part of the Saturday fraternal (Sis. Maudelin lives in Guyana and attends the Georgetown meeting) and Sis. Vanessa Sue-Hang for the memorial on Sunday.
