Attitude

You are a missionary for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, representing the Friends Forever / www.ilovejamaica.org  mission and your church.

Your words must build
people up to follow their God given dream.

You now have time to prepare for the greatest week of your life!

 

You must respect cultural considerations for the clothing you will wear in a tolerant way.

 

Activities

You are a team member not a lone ranger!

 

Your conduct and conversation is to be courteous.  The scripture (Hebrews 13:15, 16) says, 
“Thanks giving is the fruit of our lips.”
  This is to be in operation for the entire
 trip towards Dr. Mark Muirhead, Friends Forever staff, your group leader, other team members, hotel, our transportation staff and the people of Jamaica.

 

There is no place for whining, discord or uncooperativeness.  This will be immediately rebuked and corrected privately. 

No leader or student is allowed to bring any schedule changes to the founder and staff members of Friends Forever. That also holds true with complaints to staff to our Reid Transportation staff.

 

All questions or requests must privately through your trip leader and then brought to Dr. Muirhead.  Any negative action beyond the initial offence will be brought forward in public (Matthew 18).

 

No women will be permitted in men’s hotel rooms.  No men will be allowed in women’s hotel rooms.  Only the group leader can call for a meeting in a hotel room for

men and women to be together.

 

P.D.A. (public display of affection) is not permitted among team members and team members with hotel guests and  Jamaican people.  This is a trip for missionaries.  You are

expected to submit yourself  to the Spirit of God and not focus on lesser issues during this trip.  Sexual activity within the group or with any contact in Jamaica will result

in immediate dismissal and return to the USA at the expense of the person.

 

When curfew is set each evening it is mandatory to abide by the time. No activity outside your room is allowed until 7:30AM the next day.  We are hotel guests who

are missionaries. Violation will be confronted with in the same manner as paragraph three of Activity guidelines (Matthew 18).

 

There is no consumption of drugs, alcohol and/or tobacco.  The first violation will cause the offender to be sent home to place of embarkation, at the offenders/and

or host church expense.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

CODE OF CONDUCT – cont. – part 2

 

 

All food that is served is expected to be eaten. No diets during mission’s trip week! If  trip participant does not eat what is served they can be dismissed from the table

and return to their hotel room.  Any other food eaten at the hotel will then be at the participant’s personal expense.  Our goal is to avoid medical problems because of lack of food and water.

 

All these items are shared and enforced for your safety.  Dr. Mark Muirhead often says, “Your issues  will not become the issues of this missions trip. Our issue  is that we lead  people to see Christ. Then they will be open to receive Him when we speak.”
