My trip to Negril, Jamaica, was my first international service project that was not a religious-based trip. I quickly realized that what I loved so much about “mission” trips was really a love of general service and cultural exchange, and not about the religious aspects at all. I bonded fast with my teammates, some of whom I remain great friends with today. Playing with kids, building an addition onto a schoolhouse, and getting to know people from a community thousands of miles away were just some of the amazing things to come out of this trip. Also, the ocean in Negril was spectacular and beautiful and gave me a much-needed calm that I hadn’t felt in years.
