Name of Project: Partnership effort with Pine Forge Academy Community Service Outreach and Giving Back Emphasis
Country: Barbados, West Indies
Purpose/Goals: Part of the program at Pine Forge Academy (PFA) is community service and giving back. After doing some research, staff members discovered that the Seventh-day Adventist Mother Church in Barbados, named “King Street Church” sponsors a community outreach of a weekly meal to the people of the community, serving over 60 people every Wednesday, and they are hoping to do more. Besides feeding weekly, there is a quarterly distribution of clothing in the neighborhood.
PFA Class of 2018 has been planning to go on a mission trip to Barbados, and for over two years has been raising funds for this project and all the costs that will be associated with the travel. The academy is now at the point of seeking to acquire funds for the actual mission portion of the trip and we have promised to help. The kitchen where the food is prepared is in need of renovations and upgrading. PFA plan is to upgrade the infrastructure of the entire kitchen to include the purchase of updated appliances, namely, a stove, a microwave, a refrigerator/freezer along with pots, pans, and other necessities.
In addition, the Class has received a donation of shoes and sneakers and will be distributing them as part of the mission project. MOHIM believe these improvements will expand this historic church's ability to serve their wider community and improve on their vision to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and spread the Love that the world needs.

Summary of intentional goal: The purpose of our prayer summit is to emphasize not only the power of prayer but also the absolute “Joy” we can have through intentionally praying through the Holy Spirit in Jesus name. As the Prayer Ministry Partner of MOHIM - I believe, "Prayer should be the first line of defense in all situations for peace, courage, strength, wisdom, discernment and Godly protection, further believing that corporate prayer has great power". There will be designated prayer times provided throughout the day for adults and children. Pastoral speaker's messages will focus on how and why we need to "Pray" effectively. Throughout the event Mission organizations will have the opportunity to give spotlighted testimonies on how prayer has impacted their ministries and seek your effectual prayers for success.
Child care will be for provided for children under the age of eight. Prayer ministry will be provided for children and youth through day.
Power Packed Agenda for the event soon to be published.

Disaster Relief Medical and Mental Health Resiliency & Sustainability Mission Trip
Regional Area Focus: The ravaging winds and waves of the hurricanes that ripped through the Caribbean left not only extensive and devastating damage to physical structures but also trauma born of the loss of familiarity, homes, friends, and family. Maslow developed a model of hierarchy of needs, indicating that in order for people to achieve feelings of love, belonging, esteem, and self-actualization; their basic safety and physiological needs must first be met. Given the major trauma and loss sustained on the entire island of Dominica, MOHIM Inc., in collaboration with the East Caribbean Conference of Seventh-Day Adventist is leading a group of mental health professionals such as clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers to lend aid to those who have endured this major trauma. They will focus on helping to strengthen resiliency in the people of Dominica to help ensure their sustained mental health for the weeks and months of rebuilding that is yet to come.
Strategic Dates & Timelines: 14-29 January 2018 (Dates subject to change to accommodate operational on site goals).

Thank you for your donation as well as your prayers for our sisters and brothers in this region. Please know all donations are tax deductible and all proceeds will be distributed to the post-hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean region. Many houses of worship and schools have been demolished, and some have lost everything including family members. It is the commitment of MOHIMInc to assist in the relief effort in a significant and direct way.
Members of MOHIMInc's Executive Board and some members of the Board of Advisors will also be donating our personal time during the next 12 months, as many of the buildings, homes and emotional lives are still in the stages of rebuilding.
Thank you for your contribution, and know that you’re making an impact on lives not just for now but for eternity!
Together In Service,
Dr. Andrew R. Harewood, Chairman
