Evelyn Sykes, of Clarksville, TN, went on her first missions trip this last July. Here is her account of the trip as told to her mother, Rhonda.

“When I was in Jamaica, I played with the Jamaican kids. It was my first missions trip. I gave out bags to people. The bags had a sandwich, toothbrush, toothpaste and candy in them. I also gave out bags of juice. A doctor named Bruce helped all that needed medical. Mr. Seth helped see patients, too.

I rode the bus on long rides to help with people. The Jamaicans love to play soccer. I loved helping with the people there because it made them happy. We sang songs and listened to Bible lessons. I am thankful that I got to go on the trip. The food tastes different in Jamaica. I played games outside with the kids. I am going to Jamaica again this summer.”
