My Story

by Emily Tiernan | March 6, 2024 7:09 PM

Hi! This week has been such a great experience for me. Starting with the deaf school, it was so inspiring. I got to hang out with kids who have so much joy for us just sitting with them. I was with the 1st graders and they had three kids who I got to grow close to thought this week. It was so sad to say bye to them earlier today. Yesterday, when we went to Widows Mite, I got to see a different side of the world and that moment has changed my life forever. Then as we got to help with their basketball court. I not only grew in friendships with people on this trip but I got to grow my faith by seeing how much everyone worked on one thing to help people in need. We know that God will do the same for us whether we think we need him or not. These past few days have changed my life in the best way possible!

Lisa Carpenter

March 7, 2024 8:19 PM

(OH NO) I sent my message before I was finished! 1 Peter 4:10-11 10: Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace and his various forms. 11: If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praise through Jesus Christ.

Lisa Carpenter

March 7, 2024 7:59 PM

Grayson, You traveled to Jamaica last week on a mission of service, a journey with a purpose: to bring joy to those on need to bring hope to share blessings to help others find their way I have witnessed you share and serve in many ways with a grateful heart, all in the name of Jesus. To all Praying Pelican on this Mission to the school for the deaf, I am praying you will travel far and wide in

Georgia borbidge

March 7, 2024 7:16 PM

Ready or not Y'all will be back to howdy land tomorrow. What a glorious week it has been, even for us on this end reading about God’s marvelous work and seeing y’all’s wonderful faces in pictures! I’m praying for safe, stress free travels tomorrow! John 15:11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. Psalm 5:11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. I love you Grayson. I Can’t wait to see that big smile tomorrow.

Robert Walter

Wesley Evans

March 7, 2024 5:12 PM

I’m baaaaccckkkk. Aren’t you all excited what I have to say for the grand finale? I know I am. David, hi again. Don’t worry, this one isn’t for you. I just wanted to ask you to call Mr. Slate “Baldamort.” After seeing his glistening head in the pictures, I was reminded of just how much he likes to be called that. Don’t let him tell you lies about some bear. Everyone knows Jamaica has no bears, so it’s nothing to worry about. Adie, I know you probably forgot you were whiter than snow again. So make sure you keep that burn cream close at all times. And just to make sure Adie doesn’t forget to put on the cream, I ask that everyone else, give her a nice pat on the neck, or wherever else she looks like a tomato. Watch out for the stairs. Grayson, I’m not there to play Tennis with you, so I think you should play it with Zach. I know how much Hughroy and David love watching that game. Jordan, if Jack and Jayden do something weird before bed again I give you full permission to smack them with the broom. Walter, you are perfect I have nothing bad to say… Siiikkkkeeeeee. I noticed that you once again chose to wear pants. For this one I’m going to quote Thomas. “I’m not saying you’re not intelligent, you’re just uneducated.” You do know that it’s like a bajillion degrees out there right? All jokes aside, I love each and every one of y’all. I hope your last day was a great one. God has done some amazing things for each and every one of us. This trip is truly one of the most impactful. I can’t wait to see y’all back in America to try to make that Oreo Pizza and hear all of the stories. I’m praying for you safe travels, and more awareness in the airport for a couple. Lots of love, and a whole bunch of ya mon’s. ♥️ P.S. David, don’t read this next part out loud. Make sure to wake the guys up with something like “we’ve missed our flight.” I know how much we loved hearing we missed breakfast a few days ago. Ok, you can go back to reading aloud now. For the rest of you, you’ll have to find out tomorrow what I said. It’s a surprise.

Gina Gates

March 7, 2024 1:41 PM

So happy to see you all exploring Jamaica & having a wonderful time! It has been a packed schedule; however, you have had an opportunity to experience things that will forever be in your hearts. Enjoy the remainder of your trip! I can’t wait to see you tomorrow, Kade!

Anitra Simpson

March 7, 2024 12:08 PM

Dear Adie Well, the trip is ending soon. By now all the activities are winding up, packing has probably started for the trip home…. the end is insight…home in your own bed, familiar surroundings. But you will always have the memories of your first mission trip. You now know what it is like to give of yourself without any reward except doing what Jesus has asked of us as Christians. I hopr you are aware of what you have accomplished this week. You are a caring, loving person and you now know what that really feels like.. There is no other feeling like it. God will bless you for what you have done. I look forward to seeing you. Love you so much Pipi

Sylvia & Victor Chen

March 7, 2024 10:50 AM

Zac- We miss you and look forward to your return and hearing all that God has done during your very first mission experience in Jamaica. As you debrief and wrap up your time, we pray for safe travels tomorrow.

Benny Gates

March 7, 2024 6:57 AM

Grayson, I hope that you practice singing happy birthday and get a good nap on the fight home tomorrow bc I’m going to wake you up early Saturday morning to celebrate me turning 14 before you head back to the airport for another fight…. A 9 hour one! I love you! God is good all the time!

Lord I am so inspired by what you’re doing for God in the hearts of these FB students and the people they've met or become reacquainted with in Jamaica!! I pray each of you to remember what God’s done in your heart on this journey. Those of you who anre on this trip for a second time may remember it’s a little uncomfortable upon “re-entry” back to your life here. It’s my prayer you all take time and listen to what you’re meant to DO with that feeling. What heart-work has our awesome God assigned you as “homework”? And where is He calling you? How is He shaping us all to be forever changed by your experiences? ❤️ Thank you all for sharing your journey with us and shining God’s LIGHT! Aly Brooke, this might be your last Eagle Week but it’s a life mission to carry with you as you graduate and step out into the world! We love you. Thank you to Praying Pelicans, Mr. Slate and Coach Allmon for your planning and guidance. Enjoy what God is doing today! 💚

Georgia borbidge

March 7, 2024 6:25 AM

Grayson, Hazel and Rosie think you’ve been gone long enough! They refuse to leave your bedroom… they’re ready for you to return home and pet them! Of course I miss you too… especially you pounding the Mexican hat dance and LaBamba on the piano when we’re all trying to get ready for bed and you moonwalking through the kitchen at dinner time to name a couple ;) Get your praise on during your last full day in Jamaica. Raise those hands high and give God the glory for all that he’s done! Hug a dolphin for me! Love you! Psalm 150:1-2,6 Praise the Lord.Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness….. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Big hugs from everyone ! Love you

It warms my heart to read the stories and see the pictures of our kids/young adults. I know they are leaving a huge impact on the community there.

Wesley Evans

March 6, 2024 7:12 PM

Well hello, isn’t this fun, I’m on the other side of the comments now, so get ready ?. This one is long so sorry David, for everyone else sit back relax and enjoy the show. First off, have a song request for Ally. Could you sing Oreo Pizza for David, I know how much he loves it and I just want him to hear it again. That would warm my heart ??. Hannah, no more ticks please, I don’t need to see that terrifying thing in a plastic bag again. That goes for you too Jayden. Tumi, I love the new fashion statement with the flower on your eye that was certainly something. Jack I know you’re sitting over there being as quiet as you can. I’m excited to hear what weird thing you do before bed this time, I’m sure Spencer will love it. Make sure to include Jayden in all your shenanigans. And to everyone in the boys side, keep Jayden away from the mirror. Lord knows he loves that thing too much. Spencer I hope your shower tonight is less than three hours long. Remember I’m there in spirit yelling at you to hurry up. In all seriousness I love all of you guys, and I’m so sad I can’t be there. God has done some amazing things in this group, and he’s not done. You all have grown so much, and shared so much love in Jamaica. I can’t wait to hear all about what all I missed. I love messing around with all of you but my favorite part about our group is when we glorify God together. Keep your minds in service, and keep on singing in the bus. I’ll be singing along with you all in America. Love you all so much!!! Have fun at the beach!!

Gabriella Stewart

March 6, 2024 7:09 PM

Trinity, the Believers Club is praying for you and your classmates. Our prayer has been for God to protect you all and that this experience be life-changing for all of you, in the best possible way. It fills my heart with so much joy to hear the God is moving and answering our prayers. We will continue to keep you all covered, in Jesus’ name. Love you??

Amy Gregorek

March 6, 2024 7:02 PM

Loved catching up with your evening and day through the trip journals of Isa, Faith, Wes & Tumi . Faith you are right, a relationship with Jesus is often private quiet time with Jesus, but we can certainly speak LOUDLY and PROUDLY about what a wonderful friend savior He is!! And Isa , it’s inspiring to hear how God is working in your heart and how you want to serve more at home! Tumi, you brought me to tears me with that last paragraph about growing up too fast and living fast in America. You’re exactly right— we are called to live life fully and bask in the Love of the Lord forever! May He call each of you into that fullness without ceasing!!! Aly I love seeing connected to Christ and your friends, it is beautiful. I know it will be hard to say so long this week, and in a few months. Isn’t it wonderful to know heaven is an eternal home, for everyone you’ve met and who believe. Thank you Lord for the gift of time and intention!!!

Benny Gates

Jake Borbidge

March 6, 2024 6:00 PM

Grayson you seem to be quite camera shy. I'm assuming you either shaved your head or got a sweet face tat. Your pups got shaved while you were gone too. Whatever it takes to share the Gospel. Amen amen amen! In my calendar it says only 2 days till Grayson comes home but I know when you leave the friends you are making on the island will be marking only 359 days till Grayson comes back. Keep it up. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" Gal 6:9

Mitsuko Montoya

March 6, 2024 5:54 PM

My sweet Isa, I can’t thank God enough for your life! You are such a special young girl with an amazing heart. Loved reading your journal and seeing how God uses the most uncommon ways to work in our lives and prepare us to be closer to him and be a living testimony of his goodness and mercy in our lives! Missing you bunches and can’t wait to see you again on Friday….counting down the day's and I hope all your friends are enjoying their time there too ♥️

Georgia borbidge

March 6, 2024 5:30 PM

I love these amazing testimonies. Thank you for sharing! Y’all busted out the awesomeness again today team! Hallelujah!! I love seeing God’s purpose for each of you on this trip being fulfilled! Continue to be bold! Love BIG! 1 John4:7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. GRAYSON make sure you get some sun on that mustache at the beach! The French women might like that next week! Oh là là!

I know it was hard for him to leave today because he truly loves Jamaica and the students at the school. We are so proud of everyone and the impact you are making in their lives.

It’s so touching to hear the testimonies of what’s going on in Jamaica and how God is opening your ears, eyes, hearts, and minds to what God wants to show you and how you have a part in His great plans. God bless you all! Please tell Zac his family and friends love him and are covering him in prayer. Good night.

What an amazing day you guys had! So proud to see everyone showing the heart of God! Well tonight is our last chance to comment as Wes will be leaving the group tomorrow morning to head to The State Debate Tournament, so Ally this is for you….I know everyone is in tears that he will be leaving, because you will miss the ENDLESS conversations about what planet or star is in the evening sky or when the next SpaceX launch is. It will be hard but you will muster the courage to carry on I promise. ? I need every one of you to give him a big hug and tell him his mommy and daddy love him bunches and good luck traveling by himself tomorrow. Y’all may want to remind him that he is a big boy now and he can do it. We will continue to pray for the group that the remainder of the week will be amazing and that you represent the body of Christ to the fullest. PS we know you will miss Wes immensely but remember you can do all things through Christ.

Grayson, God has good things planned for you this week and he’s got work for you to do too. You are strong and up to the task. Hebrews 12:1-2 Jesus, Founder and Perfecter of Our Faith Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

What a great looking group, but can someone please tell Wesley to fix his hair! He’s a “special” odd unit (ask Mr. Slate to explain that one), but he doesn't have to look the part ;) Can't wait to see what God does this week! Let him shine through you in everything you do! PS Please keep Wesley away from any sharp objects, hammers or even a one wheel (you can ask him to explain that story) he may be a future Rocket Scientist but he hurts himself just walking. All kidding aside super proud of him and all of you for making this trip!
