I watched these lovely young people for a while today as they chatted and laughed away, and decided to snap a picture. This is quite rewarding to see such bonding between the hearing and the deaf, because that was one of our goals in this small community, to educate the hearing about the deaf and visa versa. I am thrilled to report, they are listening.
The children and dorm parents, at the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf (CCCD), were excited about their new outfits and shoes. Really for them , it was like going shopping and it was a lot of fun watching each child’s excitement. Therefore, these four beautiful girls wanted to say “thank you” for your kindness. What a blessing.

This time we went to Emancipation Square in Spanish Town…Jamaica’s old capital…for an educational tour. The boys were very interested in learning about where we as Jamaicans have come from. A very rewarding day!
Just want to take the time out to thank our tour guide who was a very kind man with a very compassionate heart. A big THANK YOU!

We went to Salt River to cool off from the summer heat. The boys had a great time! This was also a time for educating the community about deaf persons, they were very supportive.
