We Owe the Poor

Today, the students worked a half day in Harmons with one of the following projects: in a marl haul, digging a septic tank pit, throwing cement on a side of house, teaching in the school or helping ladies shop in the store. The other half of the day our students went to the Maypin Infirmary. Imagine the worst nursing home in the States and then multiple the conditions by at least a 100. If Jesus were literally walking in Jamaica I truly believe we would have seen Him today. Our students were taken outside of their comfort zone. You cannot truly put into words what your teenager witnessed today. Here is just one picture to try and catch so many healing moments. Our day was captured in the following qoute: “Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us love God better because of them.” – Mother Theresa

We have one more full day of work tomorrow and then our students will go to a Jamaican home to have dinner tomorrow night.
