We need YOU to contribute to the work God is doing through Humbly I Serve in St. Thomas
Are you looking for a new and exciting adventure this summer? Do you want to be a difference maker? We want you to partner with Humbly I Serve on our mission trip to Seaside Adventure Camp this summer and help bring needed change to the island of St. Thomas! Much work still needs to be done to point these people to Jesus every day; we must not only help through spiritual provision, but physical as well.
As one of the Virgin Islands (located in the Caribbean), St. Thomas is a beautiful, exotic, and breath-taking place to live. However, most of natives have never heard of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of the children are forced to bypass the normal pleasures of childhood in order to provide financially for their families. Rather than playing with their friends or doing homework, they spend their weeknights and weekends soliciting to strangers simply to help put dinner on the table.
For two weeks of the summer, Humbly I Serve’s project, HIS Kids, brings Seaside Adventure Camp to the shores of St. Thomas. We strive to bring uplifting activities to relieve children and teens from the pressures of life such as teen pregnancy, broken families, gang violence, drugs, and alcohol. Whether it’s working in the kitchen, playing kickball with the youngsters, leading Bible studies, or waking up just five minutes earlier every morning to pray for the thousands of lost souls, we need your help! Whatever your passions or skills, you will be able to use them to further the kingdom of God and show Christ to the people of St. Thomas.
If you are interested in being a camp counselor for Seaside Adventure Camp this June 18-July 5, you can check out our website for more information or to apply!
Create hope, be the change, join the movement.
We are pleased to announce our newest project, Caribbean Service Corps (CSC). This service opportunity focuses on giving sight to the physically and spiritually blind through several short term and long term positions in Haiti and St. Thomas.
CSC is a new program for those looking to be interns/apprentices, journeymen, and servant leaders in either Haiti or St. Thomas. Positions include working in the eye clinic, health promotions, social media, film/video, finance, children’s ministry programs, sports ministry, maintenance, optometry, ophthalmic technicians, and administrative support in a Bible college. These roles are essential to the overall mission of the HIS Vision Project to eradicate needless blindness and visual impairment worldwide.
If you are interested in getting involved with Caribbean Service Corps in any way, click here and tell us how you’d like to get involved. The Lord can use your skills and passions in ways you could never imagine!
A post from our Founder/CEO Melinda Wilson
“Feeling like sharing today…..
Over 30 years ago my family was packed, had a great tough truck, financially funded and ready to serve the Lord in Haiti. My mom just told me that my brother Todd Bellew was almost Haitian not a Trinidadian! (-: All that planning and preparing and only to find out that the Visa was denied for our entry. Looking back we can see that God’s way was the best!
Scrolling forward to present (well 2012), the Lord clearly opened doors in Haiti for me. Being a hypochondriac, I was not excited! However, once I landed in Haiti and literally witnessed the Lord opening doors to minister and meet needs there my fears quickly dissipated. God gave me such a peace.
What’s even more amazing to me is that what God was calling me to help provide, I had never planned for my life. Eye care? First of all, when I met my husband I had never even heard of an Optometrist. That could be due to the fact that I was raised in the caribbean that had little to no access to eye care. Well being the good and supportive wife that I am, I had quickly became interested in eye care and even became a licensed Optician. I began to love helping people see and even more helping educate people about the need for proper eye care.
Unlike my parents or our family’s situation those 30 years ago, God provided a way into Haiti for me. However, all the funding, vehicle needs and details were not clear. And several things are still not clear. What is clear is that God has called me to complete a task that is much bigger than I can accomplish. Exactly how that will all work out? I am not sure but I am trusting in Him each and everyday! There are times when I feel so discouraged and wonder why am I even doing this. It can’t be done. God lifts me up and I continue to move forward in faith. I am willing to move or let God move through me.
Don’t miss out on something God is calling you to do even if it seems ridiculous. Or even something that you may feel is simple. When you are called you are not alone, He is with you every step of the way. Sometimes God does not call us to a place but a process.
Thank you mom and dad FrancesDennis Bellew for choosing to follow Christ’s calling on your lives even though many times it was tough! What once was solely the caribbean, God has broadened the field of your service to Him to reach the lost in other parts of the world that you never imagined. And thank you for sharing our Haiti family prayer card with me this morning.”
Our mission is to create hope to the Caribbean, through biblical discipleship, spiritual encouragement and innovation.
