[Tobago] Women in Tobago, a country on the island shared with Trinidad in the Caribbean Sea, launched two creative ministries in December 2020.

“VIP Moms” ("Vest-Inspiration-Pampers)" project is the brain-child of Jamila Joseph-Nicholls, Women's Ministries director of Tobago Mission. This project reaches out to young non-Adventist mothers in need. Each woman receives a hamper with baby supplies and a personal prayer to give her encouragement. This program was launched in December 2020 and within three months 210 hampers had been distributed.

The second project is called "Water and The Word on Wednesdays." Every Wednesday Sister Sherma Frank-Joseph sets up her "stand" and offers a cool bottle of water and an inspirational booklet or Priority magazine to passers-by.

We give God praise for these amazing women in the Tobago Mission.
