Ed and Sharon Werner
Ed and Sharon Werner were the primary link between Christians in the United States and several Churches of Christ in Jamaica for 23 years. Ed passed from this life Oct. 5, 2015 at 76 years of age. Dan & Joanna Smith have taken the responsibility of overseeing the Jamaican Evangelism ministry. Jamaican Evangelism's purpose is to train native men to preach and then help with their support. Dan and Joanna have made a number of working trips to the Island and serve as forwarding agent for funds designated for these preachers. The principal language is English, so the usual language barrier is not present- perhaps just an accent hurdle to cross with a mix of British English and Patois (African slang.)
