“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” – Mother Theresa

There is redemption in a smile! Last month, Montego Bay was blessed with free dental care from Mission Discovery’s dental team out of Pennsylvania. In one week they relieved the pain of over 100 people, and brightened the busy streets with beautiful new smiles!

Another team labored in the hot sun to finish a roof for The Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf. As the school continues to expand and give life to a community of often ignored, and sometimes abused children with disabilities, the vision of this building has become a race to the finish. It will be used for classrooms that can be broken down and transformed into a large meeting area. I love serving at this school as it’s administrators work to give children a brighter future.

Our teams also served at an orphanage. I visited, and was handed Renee, a 3 month old baby girl who’s mother had passed away. Even as I type this I am full of tears. I felt her heart, it was heavy. I am excited to watch her smile grow over the next few years as Mission Discovery teams continue to flood that place with love, peace and joy
