Jamaica Team Blog #5: Meredith Bennett

Hey y'all, it's Meredith for the Thursday blog! After a good breakfast of scrambled eggs and oranges (on different sections of the plate, not together), we headed off to start our last day of work. It was quite a lot of fun to goof off while digging dirt and mixing concrete. Morgan played air-guitar along to the song "Free Bird". We stopped for lunch, which consisted of s...

The main meal of breakfast consisted of a type of Jamaican fruit that looks, smells, and tastes like eggs (ackee). After breakfast, we went on an hour and a half drive to Kingston, Jamaica. Most of us slept on the way there. When...

Fun fact: do not chew gum around kids who don't get to chew gum; today a young boy asked me what I was chewing and t...

In America, they pick it earlier whi...

Fun fact: the sun shines brightly through the windows around 5 AM so I, personally, was wide awake by 8:00. After a breakfast of some magnificent scrambled eggs with peppers and bacon mixed in we headed down to ch...

New Youth Logo & Mission Statement

For the past four years, we at the HPC Youth Ministry have been equipping students to "walk in the light and glow in the dark." This has been a helpful mission statement for me and other youth leaders at HPC because it has reminded us of our main focus in Youth Ministry: to be instruments through which the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shines. I hope it has also been...
