This Summer, Gangway is taking a team of high school students to Freeport, Bahamas from July 8-13. Our goal is to serve and assist in community rebuilding after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. While many commercial restoration and relief efforts have been successful, there’s still much to do in helping local communities get back on their feet.
Here's a basic outline of our trip schedule:
July 8 – Departure from FLL (AM)
July 9 – Commute to Work in High Rock
July 10 – Commute to Work in High Rock
July 11 – Commute to Work in High Rock
July 12 – Worship at Freeport Bible Church and Excursion
July 13 – Excursion and Return to FLL (PM)
We’re partnering with Mission Exec. to provide housing to community called "High Rock" which is located on the central southside of Grand Bahama Island. The team will depart from Fort Lauderdale via Balearia Ferry on Wednesday, July 8th. Once we arrive in Freeport, the team will take the bus to airbnbs located near Bell Channel Bay (49 min). We'll send the address for your reference once housing is secured.
Thursday-Saturday, we'll commute by rental vans to High Rock (1 hour) to assemble a cutting edge house made out of recycled plastic. Calvary Chapel’s entrepreneurship team has fundraised to provide two houses. A separate team will complete the first and our team will be working on the second.

Sunday, we’ll conclude our time in Freeport as we worship and spend time with our host church (Freeport Bible Church), after which we'll enjoy excursion activities [TBD] before returning to Fort Lauderdale on July 13th in the evening. A more detailed daily schedule will be communicated when finalized.
Since there are always additional questions that come up, please plan to attend the info meeting on February 9th in Gangway at 12:15p. You'll have a chance learn more about the trip and ask further questions. In the meantime, you can always reach out to email@example.com or 954-334-5280.
Please prayerfully consider joining Gangway on this life-changing mission trip to Freeport.
