Jamaica mission trip

Dear Family and Friends,

     I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Mandeville, Jamaica with Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) this coming May 3rd through May 19th. CCM has been sending students to Jamaica for 15 years and I am excited to be part of this tradition. While in Jamaica we will be working with the boys from St. John Bosco Boy’s Home. Boys, ages 5-17, are welcomed and offered support, education, boundaries, skills, discipline and even trade opportunities. Our two-week trip will focus on building relationships with the boys through a vacation bible school camp, music camp and sports camp. We will also help with minor construction and repairs around the property.

By being able to go on this trip I will be able to :

· Encounter God's heart

·  Appreciate the blessings the Lord has given me

· Broaden my culture horizon

· To serve others

    I look forward to sharing my experience with you once I return. Thank you for your financial and prayerful support
