As a body of loving, giving, believers, we strive to share The Word and Grace of God through action. In recent years we have sent short-term mission teams to the following areas.
Our teams began work by reaching out to the Mayan Indian children at Heart House near Belmopan, Belize. Heart House is an after school program where the children are tutored, are taught the stories of God, play games, celebrate God, and be loved. Since many of the children were in need of shoes, Beneva Christian collected new shoes to be distributed to the children of Heart House. Additionally, we also helped build a missionary’s home in the Mayan village.
Twice we have sent teams to Ocho Rios, Jamaica to help the local missionaries feed the street people, and led worship services at the Bus Stop Church. and we have built two homes in the nearby mountains for families in need.
Traveling to Dundrum in County Down, people from Beneva Christian have participated in various opportunities to share God’s love. Prayer walks, Youth meetings, and leading worship, are a few examples of shared ministry on a trip to “The Emerald Isle.”
