Hello! We are Jamie and Chris Wilcher and have a huge heart for serving those in need, culture, and reaching the lost.  We have two girls, Ava(11) and Lola(4). We spent a year living on a catamaran, and sailing to different places so we can partner up with local leaders of the church and groups to help out where needed. God then took that vision and transformed it. We have since sold the boat and formed the Siloam Missions Collaborative.  
Our mission is to be disciple makers and share the good news of Jesus at home, as we go, and where we go!
To learn more about our past missions and our family check us out on Facebook or IG @ Make Memories Travel More.
Our latest mission field we served in Great Guana Cay, Abacos, Bahamas.
While in Great Guana our goal was to do a Men and Woman’s bible study, love on the community, serve in church with music and if Chris needed to teach any Sunday. Our focus was community and just loving all the people.
We were told there were not many children on the island and that was a concern since we have 2 young girls.  
Upon arriving, the island had a Halloween celebration and almost 30 children showed up for it!! What a blessing! 
It was ask if we could do a children church while on the island. We said absolutely and also formed a play date kids meet up. 
What started as something to let out girls play turned into a fullblown ministry for our whole family. 
Something we were not expecting changed our focus and gave us new vision, God's vision!
The youth on the island were available (other than us doing a pick up in a few golf carts), they were faithful with our meet ups, and they were teachable. May we all learn from the youth around us!
They have shown us to get away from our screens and be intentional with them. We had pickle ball and tennis rackets, bat and ball, football, and light sabers and just played. Nothing fancy to give, only our time.
Our play date then grew into a youth community clean up once a week on a different day! 
Chris would grab some trash bags and the kids and him would stay in the settlement and fill the bags. Once the bags were full they would move on to beach games. 

What we would love to do if we get the opportunity to return to Great Guana...
-Start a literacy meet up where we read a book and the children get to check out a children’s book every week. 
-Mentor/ big brother/big sister school helper
-Young men’s youth bible study 
-Young ladies youth bible study 
-Youth community clean up weekly 
-Youth funday meet up
-Children’s church 

What we need for this to be successful...
-2 bed housing for up to 3 months at a time
-Financial support for food, golf cart, and housing 
-Islands locals to volunteer along side us so when we are not on the island the mission continues 

We are praying God’s will over all this and if it’s not meant for us, that someone will stand in the gap for the youth on the island. 
We will be obedient to where he calls us!

Blessing and Love,
The Wilcher Family

UPDATES

It looks like June and July in Central America are almost funded!! What a praise in Jesus's name!
Between your generosity and us putting aside 40% of profits made while in the states we are almost at our goal. We also plan on using our air miles to help stay under our budget. 
We have secured housing and a rental car for June 9-23 in Roatán, booked the rental car to get us from Little Rock, AR to Dallas, TX where we will fly out of nonstop. 
We are so very excited to see how God uses us on this trip and so very thankful that we have the opportunity as a family to serve together in Central America! 🙏🏼
Blessing from our fam to yours!

Vision for June and July of 2021
February 1, 2021

We wanted to share an update to our campaign that we are praying over  and moving forward with planning unless God closes the doors. 
While we still have hope in what Jesus is doing in Great Guana and are still seeking housing there so we can go and pour into the youth we have also been praying for God to overwhelm our hearts for what overwhelms His. 
Central America is a location that God has always placed on our heart. We have visited San Pedro, Belize and this was the first time both our girls left the US with us. We did our first family mission trip in Costa Rica and we had plans last summer to sail our boat to Rio Dulce, Guatemala but covid happened and we also felt lead back to Great Guana. 
We now feel God pulling us back to this region in a series of exploratory trips.
The first place we would spend time at is San Pedro, Belize. We were invited to go with another married couple on mission to San Pedro, Belize for June to help love on the community and share Jesus. We will also be assisting on dental efforts and organizing a biblical youth summer camp. We are still praying on how God intends to use us there. 
While in Central America we also plan to visit Roatan, Honduras and Rio Dulce, Guatemala. Please pray along with us for God to use us in these locations to be the Salt and Light and for us to show action and speak the Truth of God. 
Guatemala was hit back to back with 2 major Hurricanes this past season and that is on top of Covid. We hope to donate funds and serve in the Rio and surrounding villages. 
As things unfold we will continue to update. 
We need to raise support for where God is calling us. Please support us financially. 
Blessings,
The Wilcher's
