In 2019 Hurricane Dorian wreaked devastation in certain areas of the Caribbean. Many of the islands and islets are still seeking assistance in their recovery efforts. Electricity has only recently (Sept, 2020) been fully restored to one particular islet.  The rebuilding efforts there continue.  Many organizations have assisted in this effort but after a year, as so often is the case, other pressing disasters around the world have limited their ability to stay engaged.

During the clean up operation, a small church plant was begun with the assistance of Samaritan's Purse. Now both a resident and scattered few but mighty Christians seek to continue the effort of reaching out with the Good News to an islet with no established church presence.  Carol and I have been invited to engage with the leadership in this outreach to the community for the building up of the kingdom there.

Our plan is to make several trips during 2021, spending 1-2 months each time to help plan, organize, resource and provide pastoral support in this process.  (Visa issues and several other matters restrict our ability to stay longer). 

We are able to cover the cost of travel, food, visas, and other general costs out of our own personal resources.  The cost of short term housing however is significant and, quite honestly, beyond our reach.  Accordingly we are turning to family, friends, and other kindhearted Christians to help us in this effort  (More information may be obtained by writing to glenhallead@protonmail.com.)
 
We are seeking to raise a total of $15,000. The funds will be used to secure short-term accommodations of approximately 1-2 months on each of three trips in 2021, while we assist the church in its organizational, worship, rebuilding, and outreach efforts. Any and all residual balances will be donated to that local church effort.

Donors should be aware that 100% of the proceeds of this campaign will be used for housing expenses. Donors will, however, be asked to choose, as a part of the donation process, whether or not they wish to make an additional contribution to GIVE-SEND-GO but that is neither expected nor required.  Also, contributions are not likely tax deductible.  You should check with your tax advisor.  Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this matter.  We believe God has made us available for just such a work and just such a time as this.

For protection and provision as we prepare to make a rather hasty exploratory trip in December.  There are health checks, travel complexities, and other matters to be delicately balanced.  We will need to get a molecular (RT-PCR) COVID 19 test within five days of departure and submit that to the Bahaman government which may take up to 3 days to issue a health visa.  But we believe that God is more than able to manage that time frame!

Several people, interested in limiting their internet footprint, have asked if they could simply mail a check to our home address.  Yes, if that is what you prefer, you may.  We will track it along side the donations posted here and they will be accounted for and treated similarly.  If you need the address feel free to email us.

Wow, what a great response.  In just 12 hours or so we have already hit 8% of our goal. Thanks to those who have already responded.

Carol and I are making plans for an exploratory trip in December, at the invitiation of a group of part-time and full-time residents as well as some "plank-owners," funders and others committed to changing the culture of this island from a party destination to a Christian oasis, perhaps even developing it as a Christian Retreat destination.

The vision is large but our God is even larger, so please continue to be in prayer and stay posted on the project.
