Hey, Hey, Hey! Cassie and I are back from our mission trip to Whitehouse, Jamaica. We had an awesome time. Cassie made a few new friends and I got a sunburn! Over all, things went very well.
We went with a team of six people with the anticipation of doing whatever the missionary family needed us to do as far as upkeep and cleaning of the huge children's home they run. There are 26 children from 18 months to 18 years old. The team really enjoyed getting to know all the children and by the end of our time there, we started remembering most of their names! The home has a few hired staff members and a couple of interns that help with everything from teaching school to serving breakfast to getting everyone ready for church and bed.
<-This is me and my cool little friend, Joshua!
Whitehouse is a small fishing village on the southeast shore of the island. We were able to spend a little time at the docks watching the fishermen prepare for an outing that would last five nights with five to six adult men on quite small row boats with 40 horse outboard motors!
I'll write more about our adventures in a few days. In the mean time check out the Kingdom Builders Ministries web site!

Here we go! My 13 year old daughter Cassie and I are heading to Westmoreland, Jamaica in about 10 minutes. We are going down to work with an orphanage that needs some interior/exterior repair and we think we will get to lead a VBS and I might even get to preach. We want to thank everybody who has helped us with prayer and finances!! We will update you with pictures and stories as soon as we can. You can still e-mail us throughout this week: cas_E11@yahoo.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
