BY MADALYN WILBANKS | mwilbanks@secc.org There are no coincidences with God. Cambron Rich, a NextGen pastor at Southeast Christian Church, knows that a conversation he had with a man while leading a short-term, student mission trip in Jamaica April 2-6 was anything but happenstance. Each day, the group, comprised of three high school stu- dents and three leaders, prayed and shared their faith with those they met in a farming region referred to by locals as “Silent Hill.” On the second day, a man walked out of his home and came to greet the group. “I used to be a Christian, but I’ve really fallen away from Him,” the man told Rich. “I was in my room just now, praying that God would send me someone to help me find Him again. Then I heard your voices outside. Are you the ones he sent?” Rich smiled ear to ear. “It sounds like we are,” he said. The group prayed for and encouraged the man. When they returned the next day, conversations continued. On their last day, the man thanked them for answering God’s call to serve in Jamaica. “If I don’t see you again on Earth, I know I’ll see you again in Heaven,” he told them. The moment was one of many that those in the group will never forget. In partnership with Life In Abundance, a community devel- opment organization that seeks to mobilize the local church, to restore health, renew hope and inspire lasting transformation, the group served and evangelized in the community and led sports outreaches and activities for children. Though the group was small, and they served in the com- munity for just three days, God’s power was not limited. The group knew He had great things in store for them. “We knew going into Jamaica that even though we were a small team, we serve a large God,” Olivia Stanfield, a senior at Mercy Academy said. “We were a small team but we had a large mission.” The group began each day with a time of prayer and wor- ship at a church on top of Silent Hill.
