Jamaica is an island of the Greater Antilles, approximately 145 miles in length and 50 miles in width. It is situated in the Caribbean Sea, about 90 miles south of Cuba with a population of 2,765,370.
We travel to two main areas for our mission work: Portland and Clarendon. The Jamaica mission trips are usually adventurous and rewarding. No two days are alike which makes it interesting. You will be introduced to the flora and fauna of the country, the exotic foods, and of course, the Blue Mountain Coffee. We will be traveling through the mountains and by the sea to give you a cross-sectional feel of the country. You will be among the local Jamaican people and on your last two days, you get to experience being a tourist and stay at an all-inclusive hotel.
