Visits to Jamaica and Mexico

TravelIn my early and mid 20s, I had the privilege of going on a couple of missions trips to Jamaica and Mexico.  While I enjoyed visiting new countries, the trips took a little toll on me.  At the time, I thought nothing of it, but as I look back, I wonder if things I encountered on the trips added to my health problems. 

Jamaica Trip

Near the end of my trip to Jamaica, I had major stomach issues.  Stomach issues like I had never had before that, nor have ever had since.  I didn’t know how I was going to make it on the plane to return home.  Let’s just say, I had to be near a bathroom at all times!  Now a days, doctors say I have digestion issues.  Maybe after the Jamaica trip I should have checked into the possibility of a parasite, but I never did.

Mexico Trip

A couple of years after visiting Jamaica, I traveled to Mexico.  For a couple of the days while we were there, we traveled into the mountains about 4 hours from the main city.  We visited an orphanage.  I have never before nor since stayed in as bad of a place as this.  It was hard to believe the kids were living like this.  At the time, it was also hard to believe that we were going to spend a night with them.  The conditions were so horrendous that I can’t even begin to describe.
