Jamaican Service Trip
We are extremely excited for our school’s second international Mission Service Trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica. 20 of our young men will serve the poorest of the poor in rural Jamaica. Some of our projects include refurbishing Mizpah’s Library, revamping the exterior of the primary school, painting the exterior with a mural, beautifying the building and playground with additional painting and flowers, and providing 1:1 support within the classroom to help students requiring additional support. We will be departing on January 6th and returning on January 13th of 2018. We are very grateful to our administrators and the students' parents for their support and encouragement in planning this trip and making it possible.
Please feel free to read about our journey through this blog.
Bless up to the fact that everyone still tolerates me, despite being late at MC (almost an hour) this morning. Thankfully, going through security and all of the stipulations of airport travel went well for our group. Also, shoutout getting TSA Precheck, huge blessing. In all honesty, the portion of the trip that I'm most excited for is getting our cultural integration so I can experience what it's like to live in Jamaica. As a person who loves to do service, I'm also looking forward to refurbishing the library and working with the orphanage. I don't have any expectations for how the trip is going to go, hopefully well, but I'm just going to let it all happen and immerse myself as fully as I can into the trip, the people and the experience. I'm excited to be able to go on this trip and for being one of the few MC students who is able to be a part of this experience. I have this feeling that the trip will change me in some way, I'm not sure how yet, but I know it will. Not having to go to school is pretty great too. We'll see what happens.
Also, we got a shout out on the plane from the pilot! Thanks American Airlines!
