After weeks and months of planning, prayers, and preparation the Beryl Wisdom Adventist School touched down in Montego Bay at 6:15 p.m. After getting connected with the staff from Praying Pelican Missions, the team made the 15 minute journey to the Big Apple Hotel, also known this week as home away from home.

This morning started early, although not as early as a regular school day. After eating a quick breakfast we got on the bus and headed to Sandy Bay for our introduction of ministry for the week. The 45 minute bus ride along the northwest coast of Jamaica is one of the most scenic and beautiful around. God sure made Jamaica an amazing country.

Well it's Wednesday evening already. We are doing well overall. A few of the ladies are relaxing at the hotel after acquiring some back and leg pains. The rest of us are up at the church presiding over the Wednesday evening service.

After a relaxing and fun day yesterday in Ocho Rios we returned to the Sandy Bay Adventist Church this morning for the Sabbath Celebration. The day started out with Sabbath school and then lead into Divine worship. A challenging message was given by the leader of the women's ministries for the entire conference, who coincidentally went to college with Mrs. Dixon!
