Jamie Lynne Dease –
As an elementary teacher, I have many opportunities to help my students and fulfill their needs. Between tying shoes, giving permission to use the bathroom, offering small group instruction, and learning about students’ home lives, I hope that I make some small difference in their lives. For Moravians, a mission is the goal of fulfilling a fundamental need in the life of another person.
Moravians in mission have been fulfilling needs since 1732, when the first Moravian missionaries, Johann Leonhard Dober and David Nitschman, sailed to the Caribbean island of St. Thomas to bring the gospel to the slaves on the sugar plantations. This first Moravian mission sparked the Moravian passion for mission during the past 284 years.
