There is a mission trip scheduled for Jamaica July 10-17 to address the needs of the Arthur Wint School located in Lucea, Hanover. Air Jamaica has been part of the cooperative effort to help the school, with its offer of attractive airfares to assist in reducing overall trip costs.

Dusty Cooper of Isle Go organization has been spearheading mission trips to the Caribbean, with much focus given to Jamaica in particular for over 25 years. The Isle Go organization will help in assisting to meet the needs of the Arthur Wint School in Jamaica. Dusty Cooper who is a member of Northland… a Church Distributed, has played an active role in helping the Caribbean community.

Sandy Isaacs, owner / CEO of Break Away Moments, and Dusty Cooper, Executive Director of Isle Go organization, have been working together to streamline the effort to build a playground, help renovate the building, furnish the classrooms, gain classroom supplies and materials, bring the bathrooms up to standard to meet new government regulations, and do whatever possible for the students at the Arthur Wint School which services approximately 160 students this current school year. Colleen Wint (Arthur Wint’s daughter) and her family, are also involved in striving to help meet these needs. Additional help is needed!

15-20 missionaries are being sought to take the trip from the US. More volunteers are needed in Jamaica to help with this project where ‘many hands will make for light work’. Individuals, businesses and/or organizations are being encouraged to somehow get involved!

Dusty will be a guest on ‘Break Away Moments…the ultimate radio travel experience show’ hosted by Sandy Isaacs on WOKB 1600 AM in Orlando, speaking to listeners about his organization. He is scheduled to be on the air Feb. 17th. Based on the fact that he has been taking numerous mission groups to the Caribbean, Dusty’s organization has significantly impacted the Caribbean Travel & Tourism Industry with guest house stays, utilization of island transportation, the purchase of restaurant meals, Caribbean souvenir purchases and more, while helping to service to the needs of the Caribbean community in doing the Lord’s work. Support from the local and overseas community in this endeavour is being encouraged.

Dusty Cooper will be the Team Leader for this mission trip. He has developed expertise in this area, based on many years of experience in doing so , however, missionaries and volunteers within Jamaica, are also needed to assist in this project. If you can provide any form of assistance to this mission, it will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks to Air Jamaica which has granted some terrific fares to help make this happen. Thanks also to Simone Champagnie of SNC Destinations, for her help in partnering with Sandy and Dusty to secure lowered rates for the Dunn’s River Falls attraction, that the missionaries from the US will enjoy after having laboured to meet the needs of the school. (It’s also about getting to know the region too!), and also thanks to Christopher Wright, Representative of Jamaica Tourist Board, who has agreed to help secure some Jamaican souvenirs for the missionaries as a thank you token of appreciation.

Contact Sandy Isaacs @ (321) 439-5572 or email her at [email protected] for any questions you may have and/or input you may wish to give re this mission trip. Keep in mind that, large or small, any contribution with assistance in any respect, will add to the success of this mission…..’Helping hands’ mean a lot of different things!

Contact can also be made directly with the school for contributions.
The Arthur Wint School Admin. is Capt. Derrick Mitchell
