We have already fallen into a good rhythm. The yesterday morning took a long time to gather ourselves, but today we were up and out right on time. Good work team! Thank you Mr. Solomon for taking care of us last night and making us tea and fried dumpling to get us started in the morning. Blessings.
We were off to a great start and halfway through Dee realized her phone had fallen out of her pocket somewhere along the route. Not just a phone lost, but pictures and videos with people we have met along the way. It was going to be devastating to us all! We sent two back to retrace our steps, the rest kept walking on and two of us kept calling the phone every few minutes. Eventually the phone was found and the person who found it called us back and we got the phone back.
The amazing part of the story isn’t that the phone was found and given back. The amazing part is that this is what we expected. Jamaica often gets a bad reputation for being a violent country where you can’t trust anyone and you’d likely get robbed if you have anything nice (like the very nice Iphone that was lost). This isn’t the Jamaica that we know. The two young men who found the phone told us that when the found the phone that they thought about selling it, but decided it was the right thing to do to find the owner. This is what Jamaica is like, this is the interior of Jamaica that we are going through. We are constantly being reminded of the generosity of the people here. Thank you for that valuable reminder!
