Cayman Academy Launches Community Outreach

During the general assembly on Monday, April 8, 2024, Cayman Academy inaugurated its Community Outreach endeavour aimed at providing sustenance to a minimum of two families weekly through donated items. This initiative focuses on gathering and distributing essential goods such as food, toiletries, and supplies to less fortunate individuals residing in nearby communities.

Elder Edgar Bennett, addressing the student body and faculty under the theme “Hearing Makes me Happy,” emphasized the importance of showing love through attentive listening, sharing, and aiding those in distress, citing Jesus as the ultimate example. He expressed that genuine care entails sharing, which in turn brings joy to Jesus.

As a result of this initiative, Elder Bennett composed a song titled “Caring makes me happy and Jesus glad,” stressing the significance of demonstrating love daily through actions and words to please Jesus.

Mrs. Angela Hall, lead of Cayman Academy’s Early Learning Centre and the Community Services Director of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, spearheads this project with the intention of spreading the message of evangelism through acts of kindness and compassion towards community members. She highlighted her decision to engage the school community in outreach ministry rather than partnering solely with external organizations, believing it to be an effective method of winning souls for the kingdom and inspiring spiritual transformation.

Mrs Hall emphasized the school’s awareness of the community’s needs and underscored their commitment to addressing them, extending beyond the Windsor Park locality.

To facilitate participation, students, parents, and teachers were urged to contribute items from their homes or shopping lists to the collection drum stationed in front of the ELC department every Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mr. Facey, a Dean of Discipline, concluded the launch with a prayer, seeking divine blessings upon the project to bless both donors and beneficiaries alike and encourage generous participation.
