Leaving for Jamaica July 18-Join me!

Posted on June 11, 2011 at 10:36 AM

It is not too late to join me on my annual mission trip of hope and love to the poor of Jamaica-my 9th journey.  My son, Steven will be joining me again this year as well as some good friends.  The trip will be led by Father Paul, my favorite priest who has an undying passion for the poor of Jamaica.  Our trip will include the 5 year celebration of the opening of Barbaras Village with food, music, dancing and activities at the village.  I will be taking my Dog Meets World project printer for picture printing at a school and the village.  We will be building or visiting a school. We will feed the homeless at Poor Relief in downtown Kingston.  We will hug the elderly and disabled at   Golden Age.  We will love the children at Jerusalem.  We will cheer on the soccer teams from the Ellesie community at the soccer complex.  We will hug, laugh, cry, pray, and love, planting seeds of hope at each stop.  Our lives will be forever impacted during this week, as with every journey to the poor.  There will be first time pilgrims and returning pilgrims making this year's journey.  There is a spot for you and you will be connected for life with not only the poor but all who have made this journey, as the experience is one only understood completely by making the journey.   Barbara
