  • The day was hot. So hot in fact, that it redefined my definition of the word. Wiping away a bead of sweat that was threatening to fall from the tip of my nose, I tried to force the latex gloves over my fingers. With my hair pulled back into a tight bun and no makeup in sight, I wished for the...

  • During the last week in July of 2010, I attended a church led mission trip with WonbyOne to a rural town in Jamaica called Harmons.
