The island of Grand Bahama is a beautiful crest of limestone 96 miles long and 17 miles at its widest point; that is the largest northern island in the gorgeous chain of islands called The Bahamas. Since 2005 the island has endured several severe hurricanes which decimated the economy and has nearly removed the island’s middle class.

Having considered ways of helping the communities in Liberia for our international mission efforts, we thought it patriotic and necessary to focus also on a local initiative that could help to spark innovation and bring some economic life back to Freeport … “the magic city”.  We feel that this bold and ambitious project will be successful. We will face a lot of challenges and have to convince many, but to sit uninvolved and watch our community languish in lack and insufficiency; is not our posture.

And so we will provide a preview of this project during the last few months of 2017 and into the Summer of 2018 and commence “PROJECT 150 in earnest by Q4 of 2018 after we return from our Summer Mission to Liberia & Sierra Leone.  If you love Freeport, Grand Bahama and wish to see the island and its residents thrive again, then support our efforts and the eager entrepreneurs who will benefit from your participation.
