JDV 2016: Thursday

This year I had the pleasure of organizing Vacation Bible School for the children at Jamaica Deaf Village. We had such a great time this week! We had 10 kids ranging from 9 years old to 11 months old! Our theme was “Trusting God’s Plan” and we learned that God is always in control and we can trust Him because He loves us.

JDV 2016: Travel

My day began at 3:30 AM. Yes, I did say AM. It is always so hard to go to sleep the night before we head out to Jamaica. I have this fear that I am not going to hear the alarm, sleep right thru and get this call from Leah telling me that I missed the bus!
