I was born and raised in Port Antonio, a small town on the island of Jamaica. There everyone knew one another and hospitality paired with generosity was shown by all. It was always summer, and so our daily activities would often find us at the beach or the river, climbing a lot of trees, eating fresh fruit, and playing football (soccer).
After high school, my family immigrated to the US where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art, and later attended graduate school for business. I currently work as an Associate Director for a university in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and truly enjoy helping students achieve their educational goals.
The last two years have made me realize that we have powerful brothers and sisters in-Christ who are incarcerated. The LORD continues to encourage me through them – I love prison ministry! Myanmar, my heart…the children, I love them!!
I believe we are always available to do what we were created for; relationship, worship, fellowship, serving others, etc. We are never too busy to be an empty vessel for His purpose.
Kwame's Perspective on International Ministry:
My first mission trip was to Myanmar in 2019. I had no expectations of seeing the LORD move, I knew that I just had to trust regardless of what I saw because He is always working. I understood that my position was to remain in prayer, and that my responsibility was to be abiding in the Word while being sensitive to the Holy Spirit. And even so, He remains faithful. Children wanted to receive Christ in their hearts upon hearing the gospel. It was an absolute blessing to clearly see God moving – daily! I certainly will never be the same.
