St. Kitts – We Have Arrived!

This morning our St. Kitts Mission Trip Team met at the airport in Knoxville at 5:00 AM. As a general rule our team members don’t love doing mornings quite so early, but we do love Jesus and we are so excited and blessed to be spending the next week as Jesus’ hands, feet, and voice here on the gorgeous island of St. Kitts, pouring into and investing in the lives of the Comer family from our North Knox Campus as they lead and grow their Celebrate Recovery Ministry.

The team arrived in St. Kitts around 3:00 PM and were promptly greeted by the super fabulous Comer family. Their kids even made a special welcome sign and drew pictures of each team member…what an amazing surprise/greeting!

Once on the island the guys headed to the juvenile detention center to share their testimonies and to spend time playing a riveting game of cricket while the women took care of logistics with the hotel and then went to the grocery store to purchase supplies for meals the team will be eating this week.

For dinner, our team convened together at the Comer’s home and shared a wonderfully delicious homemade meal (thanks to Katelyn and Amanda) of tacos. A member from our North Knox Campus flew in this week for vacation, gotta love God’s perfect timing, and was able to join the team. This member met the Comer family for the first time in person and got to hear their testimony and catch up on the incredible work God is doing through their ministry here.

It was a great day full of travel, prayer, fellowship, and fun. After dinner the team prayed together and then headed to their rooms to recharge for church in the morning. We hope that you are as excited as we are and will keep up with our journey throughout the week. Thanks for reading!
