95 disciples have migrated from the Kingston Church of Christ (KCOC) to other churches around the world. Their concern for the welfare of their mother church was highlighted recently when a few members of this group in Florida raised a significant amount of money for the KCOC’s building fund. It is difficult for many of them to hear of the financial difficulties of the church and not do anything about it, even though their personal welfare has significantly improved. Many of them are like Nehemiah, who said to the king, “Why should my face not look sad when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire?” (Neh. 2:3); they do not have peace of mind in spite of their improved state.
This increasing concern and possible resource, and the fact that other church of the ICOC family are willing to contribute to the mission work in the Caribbean, have led to the beginning stages of the formation of the Caribbean Missions Society. A meeting held in Florida on Saturday, January 30, 2016, involving Caribbean church leaders, donor churches, and representatives for the KCOC diaspora, was fruitful and has led to concrete plans for the formation of the society. Brian Santos, a past evangelist of the KCOC, who is married to a Jamaican, has been appointed as the Caribbean churches’ representative in the USA and will coordinate activities to see the implementation of this society.
