We wanted to reach out to our members in the Bahamas to let you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Please know that you are not alone and that help is on the way. If any members in less impacted areas of the Bahamas know about legitimate relief efforts that others on Expat Exchange might be able to support, we will share the details in our newsletters next week. Also, if you have any other information to share, we encourage you to do so.

Hi!
I am the director of Go Bahamas International Mission. My wife and I have been ministering on the island since 2002, working with churches from New Emmanuel in McClean's Town, to The Church of God of Prophecy in Sea Grape. We were involved in feeding the communities of Sea Grape and Free Town after hurricane Matthew, and will be back on the island as soon as the ferry is running cargo from Ft Lauderdale again. We own a house on the island, and will be spending our retirement there starting next year. We fared very well in the storm. Many of our good friends didn't. We will be involved in bringing food to the island for the short term, and bringing teams in to assist in construction for the long term. Our website is GBIMission.com. You can find a donate button on the Hurricane Dorian Info page. I'm asking people to please just donate 10 dollars, but select "recurring donation", so that it comes to us every month. Everyone will forget about this storm in three months, but the work on the island will take years, long after the major relief effort organizations have left. I understand that people are leery of giving money, but that is what I need, unless you can supply me with metal roofing, lumber, etc. Check out our website, and our Facebook page. You will see we are for real, connected with the people of Grand Bahama, and will put every dime donated to us to the relief effort. I have been blessed with a good job, so I pay my own way out of my pocket, as do the team members we bring over. Your donations will 100% go to buying materials for construction, shipping of materials, food for the community. It all goes to benefit Bahamians, not our team. If you are interested in participating with one of our teams in the relief effort, contact us through our web site. Thank you, and God bless you for your efforts to help bring relief to the people of Grand Bahama.
