GUYANA - Pilgrim Overseas Missionary Society (POMS)
- is a non-profit organization, providing assistance to development projects in Guyana, including providing scholarships for children, and support for reconstruction of churches and Christian camps.
Baramani, Essequibo Region of Guyana - In support of Guyanese missionary, Sister Orpah Singh, Jamaica-Queens has been a regular source of monetary support. In early 2011 our church provided the funding for construction of a school and church. It is hoped that the presence of these facilities, when completed, would encourage neighboring communities to settle closer, and thereby enable them to attend church regularly.
CARIBBEAN - Through our Prayer Groups, there is ongoing support for the funding of barrels of food and clothing to be sent overseas. Foodstuff collected at Thanksgiving is packed by the Wesleyan Women and included in these barrels. They are sent mainly to Guyana, but also to Barbados. Jamaica-Queens has also contributed toward the planting of a church in St. Lucia.
AFRICA - Our church paid for the drilling of a well in Mozambique. We saw the importance of providing a source of clean water to an area where residents had to walk long distances in search of this important commodity. Also, through the Wesleyan Women, a donation was given toward the acquisition of a well for use by an orphanage in Liberia.
