Saint Bernard School Service Trip to Jamaica

On June 3, 12 members of the SBS community traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica, for a week on a mission trip through the Mustard Seed Communities organization. They stayed on a compound that is home to over 30 residents ages 7-30, who have mental or physical disabilities ranging from blindness to Down syndrome and Cerebral palsy. Most were confined to a wheelchair, and fewer could speak.

 

During the stay, students and chaperones worked alongside nurses, directly with the residents, helping to feed, teach, and entertain them. The missionaries also painted one of the houses and created a mural. They were able to participate in the community’s prayer services and see many aspects of how this "family" lives.

 

The missionaries were constantly reminded that whatever they were doing for the residents they were doing to Jesus himself.
