  1. I was surprised by the fact that this was in the Bahamas. You don’t imagine that vacation destinations are going to have that much poverty.

    Thanks for sharing your story!

  2. My first mission trip was in 1986 in the Bahamas. We were in Nassau so we saw all the big hotels, casinos and markets. We stayed at an old WW2 baracks on the outskirts of town near the garbage dump. As you get just a few blocks away from the glistening tourist areas, you see the poverty in which the average Bahamian lives. Very eye-opening.

  3. Wow, that’s an amazing story. I am fifteen years old and am going on my first missionary trip this summer. I a overly excited but the story you’ve written has definately impacted me. I am axcited to help people but am also a little nervous about all I will see. I’ve never been out of my wealthy country, this should be an eye opener. I’m glad otehrs feel the same. 🙂
