"Helping the Forgotten" a team to help the MISSION DISCOVERY INC...
My dad and I have an amazing oppertunity to serve a poor community in Nassau, Bahamas. Many of the people in this community are Haitian refugees. The Bahamian government has not done much to help these desperate people because they do not want to encourage more Haitians to come to the Bahamas. Many of these people earn barely enough money to live on. My team will be helping to repair homes, helping with a Bible school/day camp for local children, and volunteering at an orphanage.
I have never been to a third-world country. I have heard that it is a life-changing experience. My hope is that this trip will help me to become more compassionate, and that my team will be able to touch the lives of these forgotten people in the Bahamas.
