"A primary caregiver to the children in care at JRM"
Mt. Pelier, Jamaica
I was born here in Jamaica at the Montego Bay Hospital.
I have 2 older brothers and 3 younger sisters and my mom is the school teacher at Blackburn Learning Center in Mt. Pelier.
Jamaica Relief Ministries has had a very deep impact on my family for quite a long time.
At age 16, I remember JRM founder, Floyd Yoder, sitting down and asking me
"Jael, would you be interested in coming to work for us at JRM as an Auntie?" My response - Absolutely!
At that time, I was still attending school so I helped out after school and on the weekends.
I have been with JRM for 3+ years now and not a day goes by that I don't get fulfilled by helping JRM children
Over the past 3 years, I have come to realize that
I absolutely love working with children and have decided to pursue a Social Workers degree,
then come back and continue serving with Jamaica Relief Ministries.
