Our Jamaica Ministry partners are Pastor and Mrs. Raphael Thomas, founders of Blessing Basket Interna- tional. BBI is a ministry that partners with churches and other organizations to pursue the Great Commission as outlined in Matthew 28:19-20 and promote the Great Commandments. Wherein the Great Commission refers to the making of disciples of Jesus Christ of all nations and the Great Commandment refers to loving God with Heart, soul, strength and mind, and loving neighbor as self. The Thomas’s are our ministry hosts when the FBC Team travels to Jamaica, providing our lodging and working alongside the team at Central Gospel Chapel in Aleppo, St. Mary Parrish. 

Financial support from FBC Missions provides funding that helps our church family at Central Gospel Chapel, who are now led by Pastor Javaugh Taylor. Pastor Taylor has initiated youth programs of cash crop farming and encouraging youth participation in church services through dance and music. Central Gospel is also engaged outreach to the local community. The children’s Sunday School program is growing, children and families are being led to salvation and the Gospel is being shared! The FBC Summer Mission Team hopes to return to Jamaica in 2023, to continue the partnership with our church family there and provide assistance in VBS, the parsonage rebuilding program and reaching out to the people of Aleppa in Christ’s name.
