A Laundry List…

At our last speaking engagement to share stories about Jamaica, we also read aloud this list of “things” we were able to do, donate or accomplish during the trip. As you read through this “laundry list”, think about it as people’s lives who are touched – not just “stuff” that happened.

So, for every item below, remember that AT LEAST ONE person was shown love, given hope, prayed over, etc. I estimate at least 3000 people will feel the effects of the recent work we were able to accomplish either directly or indirectly. All because of our readers’ (that’s you!!) continued prayerful and financial support, which enables us to “go forth” and show Jah’s love to people!! Awesome!!
