EVENT DATE: Jul 25, 2015
We are so passionate about Westhaven Children's Home and the work The Lord is doing there! They are a charity-based organization that was founded 34 years ago in Copse, Jamaica with the purpose of loving and caring for abandoned or abused children who have some form of mental or physical disability. They are now home to 82 children and adults that range from 4 – 37 years old. No words can describe the way these precious souls touch your heart; it's truly a matter of experiencing it.
So you may ask... Why in the world is this place so special to Blake and Cassie?
Well, we'd love to share that with you!
Just last summer, we went on a mission trip to Jamaica and the orphanage was one of our main focuses. It was extremely special because it was during our time there that the Lord revealed to us that we were called to be husband and wife! Not only did He reveal His beautiful orchestration of merging destinies, but He also confirmed a calling that Blake had felt burdened with since his trip to Jamaica in 2012; that we are to one day adopt Dadrea, a precious young wheelchair-bound boy with a smile that can light up a room.
We'd love it if you checked out some more details about Westhaven for yourself! The link to their website is: http://www.jamaicalink.org/plan-your-trip/ministry-partners/westhaven-childrens-home/
