2023 Recap from Jamaica Outreach Trip

Dear Mainstreet,                                                                                    


This year, 14 people (4 from Mainstreet) took part in a one-week mission trip to the United Brethren Church camp in Jamaica. This was the first time we were able to return back to Jamaica, since Covid started in 2020. We would like to thank you for your prayers and your support through budget transfers of $1200 for 2021, 2022 & 2023.  Follow this link to read more about what we were able to accomplish this year.
