Won by One

Season: Christmas 2023 (not published)

Date: Dec. 17, 2023 - Dec. 23, 2023

Description: Harmons is an under-resourced community with nearly 2 of every 3 people under-employed. Because of expense and its remote location, consistent education past the 6th grade is often difficult. Money for basic needs (food, clothes, toiletries, medical treatment, and home improvements) is limited. The mission of Won by One is to show the love of Jesus Christ by providing opportunities through education, empowerment, discipleship, and economic development. Each day your team will split into groups to work alongside the local people constructing houses, repairing homes, assisting in schools, being a Reading Pal, or taking Faith Walks to engage and share with the people. Evangelism is done through discussions on work sites and time in the courtyard. We spend time getting to know Jamaicans and then use those relationships to share the free gift of Christ's salvation with them. Won by One exists to glorify God and make disciples by empowering lives.
