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.

Goodbye To Our Friends
Saying goodbye to friends is the toughest thing to do even if you met them a couple of days ago. Today we said goodbye to the kids at the boys home and to the boys and girls at the school. It was a very emotional but also a joyful moment. At the school we were able to finish the computer lab and install a new computer. We also finished the library and the mural. Some of us also finished teaching in the classes. Throughout the day we were able to say our final goodbyes to the students and make more memories that would last forever. Towards the end of the the day, there was an assembly. Here the school thanked us for our work and also performed some skits for us. Towards the end of the assembly there were some students that started to cry and this was where most of us started to cry with them. Here I felt a moment of happiness because I knew that our work would impact a community that truly needed it. I was happy today to know that I was able to bring God to these children and to show them happiness and love just as Jesus would. I am blessed to have the opportunity to come on this trip and bond with the Saint X kids and the Jamaican culture and people.
