The Florida Baptist Convention, Florida Baptist Children’s Home, and One More Child collaborated with and mobilized 40+ churches, both stateside and local, to facilitate the Dominica, Windward Islands Feeding of 5,000 Crusade this past June. Thousands of hurting and hungry adults and children were fed and more than five hundred accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior!
The 30,000+ bags of groceries dispersed throughout the Island of Dominica represents a two-million-dollar impact to its people. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially to those who were unsaved, represents an immeasurable impact, and eternal life for many. The successful mission was executed through four preaching and food distribution locations every night within five major Dominica towns: Roseau, Grand Bay, St. Joseph, Portsmouth and La Plaine. In total, there were 20+ preaching and distribution locations and the missionaries also spoke daily at most of the large schools in the country.
“The Feeding of the 5,000 is a movement that recognizes that God is very active in times of disasters, catastrophes and mass migrations. He directed the life of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through famines and migrated the entire nation of Israel through its toughest and most formative period in history,” explained Pastor Lennox Zamore, Senior Pastor at Exciting Central Tampa Baptist Church. “Therefore, we are using the 5,000 as a post-disaster response to accomplish two goals. The first goal is to mobilize the Kingdom to be able to receive the harvest and the second is to reach the lost in mass.”
