Dr. Tom’s Review of Nov. 2013 Optical Mission
Received Dec. 2, 2013 by Jamaica Outreach Program
It has been almost a month since we returned home from Jamaica. Hardly a day goes by without thoughts of the St. Pius experience. It was a wonderful time with Jamaicans and Americans working hand in hand to give caring, hope and the gift of sight to those less fortunate in the St Pius Community. The day could not have started out any better with an excellent mass by Father Thomas. The ride back home (the convent-hostel where we stayed) at day’s end stands out with that good feeling of tiredness that comes with knowing that everybody gave all that they could. It was after we were physically and mentally drained that we could experience the simple joy of doing God’s work. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this wonderful time. I hope to make more trips in the future. -Tom K.
