Our Toughest Day Yet! – Jamaica Day 5

 

Today was one of our hardest days. We started the day finishing our work projects and ministering to Pastor Sheldon Burkett and his wife Rachel, who is the senior bookkeeper for the Jamaica Deaf Village.

After lunch we went to Ebenezer Infirmary and visited with the residents who do not have family nearby. The do not get many visitors and most of them are confined to their bed or to a wheelchair.  We sang worship songs and read scripture.

Tomorrow is our day of rest. We will visit YS Falls with 2 other teams for some swimming, playing, and zip lining.

One of our favorite activities at night has been playing cards, dominoes, spoons, and Euchre. The residents are all very competitive and we have loved the fellowship we have with them!
