Jamaica Missions Trip- Day 1 1/2-2(update)

Yesterday was amazing! After flying in, we headed straight over to Higgins Land Primary School with Pastor Murphy and his friend Mark. The discussions in the car were so thought provoking and powerful. Things I took for granted like having a house to live in, cars to drive, a church to attend and the opportunity to travel. Things I realized I can grow in are being more grateful for what I have, not dumbing down the resources and insights I do have and doubting God .

Higgins Land Primary School is so cute and filled with love . It’s nestled in the lush green mountainside. It’s a few miles from Bob Marleys home at 9 mile. The school has fruit trees and is filled with positive quotes and affirmations.

The sense of community is so present and beautiful!

The children are so excited about their new space and resources. Yesterday painting and shelving were completed. Unfortunately , we arrived after the painting was completed but were able to help with unloading boxes. It was raining but no one cared, we all were just so happy to serve. We arrived to the hotel later that evening. It is right on the beach (this feels so surreal ).

This morning I woke up at watched the sunrise over the ocean- there’s no more beautiful sight than this to me. I’m just so grateful to God for his creations and beauty. It amazes me every time I see the ocean how it spans for what seems like forever and then perfectly comes to a rolling stop… breathtaking.

So now we are off to finish the projects at the school!

 

Sidenote, it is cracking me up seeing goats, chickens, and dogs walk around like they own the place! The land is so green and lush, I would’nt mind walking around grazing either like a goat, ha!
