Today was another great day in Jamaica!
Of course we began with some breakfast which, for me, consisted of a Jamaican apple and some sugar cane and some roasted bread fruit that Tammy made; and of course coffee:
We began the day with plans to go to an orphanage but we found out that that trip needed to be postponed until tomorrow. So, we decided to head up to McField early, where the Bible College is, and have lunch at “Border Jerk.” This is a place where they make jerk chicken and pork. It was awesome! Here’s a couple of photos of the place and what we ate:
This is how the food was cooked:
Here’s the best part, the pork I had for lunch:
We also had some unexpected fun today. After we left for the college, Cletis received a call from a couple of Jamaican friends who were at the deaf school who came to see them. So, we turned the van around and went back. We then met two guys named Andre and Michael. Cletis and Tammy invited them to come to the college with us, so we all piled into the van and headed toward McField for some jerk chicken and pork then to go to the college.
On the way to the college, one of the guys began to sing, and the next thing you know, Michael, Tammy, Andre and I are singing as a quartet. Then it was suggested that we sing at the school so after a little practice we went and sang a couple of songs for the students. That was so much fun!
Here’s a pic of us all in the classroom singing:
The day ended with supper with the Titus’ and Daniels consisting of “yardy wraps,” another authentic Jamaican food, which of course were awesome like most everything else I’ve eaten down here.
I wrote yesterday that I would show you Bogue village today. Bogue is the village where Bay Life Baptist is and it’s also the community that they’re trying to reach here in Montego Bay. It just so happens that we have great view of Bogue village from CCCD where we’re staying. It’s pretty cool to see it this way. Of course, when I look at the village from this vantage point I can’t help but think of Psalm 2:8, “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.” So many times that verse has been used to speak of missions, so my prayer for Bay Life Baptist is, please Lord, give them Bogue village for the sake of the Gospel that they may be saved. Will you pray for Bogue village with me?
Here’s a day and night picture from my vantage point:
