Hurricane Dorian devastated Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas in 2019. One of our local churches, a Tabernacle Baptist Church, was able to connect with the people of Green Turtle Cay through a church member whose family resided there. Since that time Tabernacle and the Daniell Baptist Association has traveled there to help restore homes, buildings, and lives. But the work continues!
Because of this partnership, Pastor Drew Bolin has made contact with the local pastor Nehemiah Smith. Through this connection, the first Baptist Church on the Abaco islands is being planted. Pastor Nehemiah and his church leader ship are in the process of incorporating bylaws for their church that adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message 2020. it is the hope of the mission team that this is just the beginning. The team hopes to reach all the people of the Abaco islands with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The next trip to Green Turtle Cay will be on July 19–26, 2021. The 14-person mission team will help to construct the church building itself, train Pastor Nehemiah and the elders of the church, and engage the Island a Green Turtle Cay in evangelism!
