Mission Trip Highlights

Elizabeth and I returned from our Mission Trip to Jamaica this past weekend. It was truly a great experience, one that I will always remember! Meeting the congregation there and becoming part of their community for only a few days was amazing.

We built a house - in four days! The family that was chosen to receive it were very grateful and appreciated it tremendously. Gregory, who was 5 years old, spent every day at the site "helping" us build what would soon become his home. I'm proud to be part of the team of people who helped make it a reality.

Elizabeth also spent time with the kids at the preschool. She showed her given talents in leading the group of youngsters through various songs and activities. My wife did a great job and I'm glad that I was able to join her and see it first hand.

Now I'm back to my normal life and I'm not quite used to it yet. I think that's a good thing...
