In 1993?<quoted text>
LCMS World Mission began work in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1993 in partnership with the Nebraska Lutheran Mission Society. Each year, short-term mission teams assist Lutheran Ministries in Jamaica with vacation Bible schools, construction work and medical assistance. Long-term missionaries have made significant contributions to the mission work in Jamaica through education for missionary children and in outreach and Christian education programs.
How does that relate to "infrastructure maintenance costs"?
What is your PRIVATE definition of MAINTENANCE?
I take it that in the US construction work is classified as MAINTENANCE but not in Jamaica.
Frijoles---Living in Jamaica you dont have the infrastructure maintenance costs, and plus your standard and cost of living is amazingly low.
HughBe--- List the items that you call, "infrastructure maintenance costs" (STILL WAITING, Frijoles)
Do you think that we have service in trees?.
HughBe---If you believe that churches here survive because of aid from the US feel free. Your argument is nonsensical.
