Jamaica Mission Trip Day 1 – October 5, 2019
Day 1 – Travel Day by Katy Creasman
We met at the Knoxville airport and then ate lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. Our flight was on time and everyone got through security with no issues. The flight from Knoxville to Atlanta was smooth and we were able to get to Atlanta and to the next gate without having to run!! The flight was once again on time and smooth to Jamaica. We landed in Kingston about 6:30pm but they do not observe Daylight Savings time, so it was already dark when we landed. Getting through customs was very easy and not crowded which was a welcomed surprise. We met Chris Briggs just outside the airport and he picked us up in a bus to take us to the Jamaican Deaf Village. On the way there, we stopped at a Burger King to have dinner. It is about a 2 hour drive from Kingston to JDV so we arrived about 10:30pm. We unpacked into the missionary housing and went to sleep. It was a very easy and smooth travel day. Now we are excited to start an incredible week and see all that God is going to do in and through us.
