Happy Easter!! Today was our first full day at JDV and what a beautiful day it was!! We got to have a slow morning and sleep in a little (although the sun peaked into the guys room bright and early and woke us all up well before breakfast!) We then got breakfast and headed to Church!
It is so cool to get to worship with the deaf and see how they can praise God in their language! We learned from Pastor Sheldon about the testimony of Jesus suffering and his victory over death! We got to connect with those at the deaf church and meet some old friends! We then had some delicious chicken (although any good April Fools Day isn’t good without a joke, so we convinced the students they were trying pigeon for the first time) and it started raining. Of course, we had to go play in the rain and got in a game of rain volleyball!
Sunday night is one of two community nights we get to have with the deaf community here, and we got to put on an Easter egg hunt for the kids here at the village! It was such a fun time connecting with them and we even got to have dinner and ice cream together after!
We ended the night talking and joking with the deaf, the other team we are here with, and each other before ending the night with our devotion, where we talked about how we are never more like Jesus then when we are serving.
All in all it was a perfect day here in Jamaica! We head to Deaf Can coffee in the morning and we are so excited to get to enjoy amazing coffee and learn more about the opportunities that CCCD is helping to create in the community here in Jamaica!
