St. Kitts in the West Indies

Executive Assistant to the President Vanessa Nealey had a very exciting mission trip this summer 2013 to St. Kitts in the West Indies.

St. Kitts Mission Trip

I had the opportunity to go to St. Kitts in the West Indies to teach Vacation Bible School at Antioch Baptist Church in July. The pastor of Antioch, Pastor Lincoln Connor, is a Luther Rice graduate.

We had approximately 300 children in VBS during the week. I taught ages 9-11, and I had about 42 kids in my class. Part of the festivities for the week included a VBS Parade which started at the church, worked its way through the streets of downtown Basseterre and ended at Independence Square park.

This was my 6th visit to St. Kitts and my 4th time to work in VBS. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be involved in missions. My family has supported the work in St. Kitts since the 1960’s. Dr. William Connor was the pioneer of the Baptist movement in St. Kitts. He started Antioch Baptist Church in 1963. Pastor Lincoln Connor is his nephew and is doing a great job in carrying on the work.
