Cross Lanes Bible Church Team Comes to Carriacou

Over the years, we have been blessed to have others to come to Carriacou to help us in ministry. We have had individuals, families, and teams.

On July 25, 2002, a team of sixteen (four adults and twelve teenagers) arrived on Carriacou by sea ferry. Most either attend or have attended Cross Lanes Bible Church, or Cross Lanes Christian Christian School, a ministry of Cross Lanes Bible Church (CLBC). Both organizations have websites that you can visit by clicking on the following links:

(CLBC is also the home and sending church of the Robinson family.)

The team was with us from Thursday, July 25, through Thursday, August 1, 2002, and it performed a number of services for us. This page presents the team and its general activities. Other links from this page highlight other aspects of their visit and work.

They Arrive & Get Settled!

The team arrived at the Hillsborough Jetty at about 12:30 AM, Thursday morning, July 25, 2002. They chartered the smaller Osprey Sea Shuttle to make the forty mile sea journey from St. Georges to Carriacou. The ride was reportedly very ... exciting for each one. Each one was quite tired and eager to get settled in to get a good night's rest.

Though we had another home that had been made graciously available for us to use, they elected to stay together in our home in Meldrum.

All brought air-mattresses or sleeping bags. Some of the ladies slept in a large open area in our basement, while the rest stayed in a connecting bedroom. The young men slept in our living room and a couple of bedrooms upstairs. Later on, some of the young men elected to sleep on our veranda because it was 'cool' (in both the literal and slang sense) and, well ..., it's a guy thing. smilewrysmll.gif (1100 bytes)

The next day they rested up and got together to go over their planned activities. They also began to get acclimated to our tropical climate.

During the day it was about 85° F (29.4° C), ~70 % humidity, with a comfortable westerly trade wind. We also had a few showers that cooled things off for a while, but made it quite humid when the sun came out later. At 12.4° latitude the sun can be quite intense. Thus, we advised all to breakout the 15 SPF-plus sunscreen and keep it applied while venturing outside.

Our Own Who Helped the Team

In addition to the folks from West Virginia, some of our people from Windward Bible Church also worked hard to make the Vacation Bible School a success.

Caroline Cornelius attends Windward Bible Church faithfully with her family. Her family are missionaries that also live and work on Carriacou. Caroline worked with the team by doing whatever she could to meet a need. She has a true servant's heart and meek spirit.

Rose Harrison

Rose Harrison is a single young lady that came to Carriacou the middle of June. She is here to work with the Robinsons for seven months until the middle of January, 2003. She recently graduated from Southland Bible Institute, Flatwoods, Kentucky in May. She has been very helpful to us, the ministry of Windward Bible Church, and also helpful to the team during VBS. Information on how to contact Rose is also on our contact page.

Jeshua Robinson

Our son, Jeshua, has attended both Cross Lanes Bible Church and the Christian School in the past. He knew most of the those on the team, and it was encouraging to him to be able to fellowship and work with them. He also participated in all their activities. He was very helpful and acted as cultural liaison and translator (West Indian English to American English) for the team.(Lord willing, he will be sixteen on November 13, 2002.) He has many high aspirations on what he plans to do when he finishes high school. You may find out how to contact him via our contact page.

Wesley Alexander

Franklyn Scott

Franklyn Scott and Wesley Alexander are Grenadians that have made professions of faith in Christ through the ministry of Windward Bible Church. Frankly is going on nineteen and Wesley is sixteen. They both followed the Lord in believer's baptism the early part of 2002. I have seen much spiritual growth in both. They often serve as an encouragement to me and the rest of our teens and children. They graciously helped with the VBS whenever they were not working at home or on a summer job. They were quite helpful and maintained a good attitude throughout the entire time. They also became close friends with many on the team and was very sad when the team left.

Taking Time to Regroup at the End of Each Day

At the conclusion of each busy day, the team and some or our youth gathered on our veranda to compare notes, share testimonies, and listen to a challenge by their sponsors and me.

Pastor Brent challenges the group from God's Word.

Some of our own listen as Dan Nelson encourages them on one occasion.

Ben Edward leads the group devotions on another night.

All pay attention and participate when they have an opportunity.

Time to Return to West Virginia

After a week of hard work and good clean fun, the folks from Cross Lanes boarded the Osprey. They then departed for the mainland amid shed tears by both our folks and those of the team. We eagerly wait for another team to come!
