Evangelism in the Caribbean

65 years ago Trinidadian graduate Ruby Thompson started Inter-School/InterVarsity Fellowship of Trinidad and Tobago. She had witnessed the transformative work of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship in the lives of students at the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, and was encouraged to start a similar group at home. Today, there are still some islands without Christian witness in the universities, colleges and schools. Give thanks for graduate volunteer Tonia from Jamaica, currently pioneering ministry in St Kitts and Nevis where she works as a pharmacist. Pray for pioneering graduates seeking to follow Ruby and Tonia’s examples in Saint Martin and Sint Maarten.
