Expanding and Improving a School in Old Harbor, Jamaica
After much thought, prayer, and consideration, we've decided that our next project will be expanding and improving Davis Primary School in Old Harbor, Jamaica. The school was built in 1970 to accommodate 200 children, but there are currently 700 attending. The government of Jamaica had ordered the school closed this summer due to excessive disrepair, dangerous conditions, and overcrowding. With our commitment to step in, however, the school will be allowed to remain open as we make repairs and expand it to accommodate 1,000 children, as there are already many who cannot attend due to lack of space.

We thought long and hard before agreeing to take on this project, because the funds needed are approximately $150,000, and that's a lot of money for our small group to raise. After seeing photos, however, and hearing from the principal, who was previously with another school we had helped, we just could not turn our backs on this challenge. As you've done in the past, we hope that you will keep us in your prayers as we continue raising funds for this project. We are about a third of the way there, and we hope that you will share our story with your friends, colleagues, and anyone else you can think of whom might want to help us with our efforts.
