This is where twenty-five children ages 8-18 call home. It is where they eat, sleep, do homework and chores everyday, along with the other twenty-four children. The staff (usually two to three aunties to the twenty-five children) do their very best to keep up, but with so many youngsters, the Wannabees love to help! Every year we spend much of our time mentoring the children of Garland Hall, hosting a VBS with crafts and snacks, playing on the playground, and just loving on them all! It is a fun and exciting couple weeks for both the kids and for the Wannabees teams!
"Five months later, this moment is one I hold very close to my heart and think about every single day. I never thought a 10-year-old boy would change my perspective on the world. Getting to know Odane over my trip to Jamaica was an experience I'll never stop thinking about. Coming to understand the way others live in different parts of the world made me more grateful for the life I have."
"I walked into Jamaica thinking I was going on an “easy” missions trip. Living in a house with air conditioning in the bedrooms, wifi, people taking care of us, a pool….etc. etc. I was excited. Hang out with some orphans….
Little did I know how God was going to wreck me in this trip. "
