What a Blessing

by Cathy Kirk | July 17, 2017 10:12 PM

Today we had a very touching moment with our team.  One of the members of Webb Memorial passed away before we arrived.  In Jamaica the community comes together to hold a "grave digging" for the people in their community.  As we were out walking yesterday afternoon in the community we met the family of the lady who had passed away and we were invited to the "grave digging."  We felt so honored that they asked us to come, this is a time of celebrating the life of the person they are digging the grave for.  

The family was so excited to see us when we arrived.  They offered to allow some of the team to help dig her grave.  We all left feeling so grateful for the special time that we were able to spend with their family.  It was an amazing experience and not one we will ever forget.

Thank you so much for documenting this week for us parents and prayer partners at home. I second what Eve said that I have seen my prayers answered in various way in what has transpired this week. We serve an awesome God!
