Kasilof man shares faith

Benjamin McGarry of Kasilof was one of 20 George Fox University students who spent a month sharing his Christian faith in Cuba and Jamaica through the university's May Serve program.

May Serve, which is in its ninth year, gives students drawn to the missions field a chance to experience it full time. Students who take part in May Serve are selected through an election process. Each student is required to pay their own way. This year's team raised money through various fund-raisers.

The team worked with churches affiliated with evangelical friends group, the Friends United Meeting, which does work projects and church ministry.

For the first half of the trip, the group lived in the town of Banes in Cuba's northeastern province of Holguin. The team stayed with host families, painted and remodeled a church building and led praise and church services in the evenings.

For the second half of the trip, the team worked with the people of Jamaica in the north central town of Highgate. They worked at Friends United Meeting's orphanages, helping directors plan spiritual life programming and educational tutoring for the children. They also ministered in area schools and churches, using music and drama, as well as participating in work projects.

God and Country Rally scheduled
