Pastor Donnie McClurkin’s latest Periscope video titled “Jesus Loves You” is touching.

The GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel artist and Freeport, NY-based pastor detailed his recent

missions trip to Jamaica.

What he experienced there was both heartbreaking and beautiful.

The 56-year-old “We Fall Down” singer, along with other pastors, medical staff and volunteers,

shared the gospel—not just in word, but also in deed—with the poor, abandoned and forgotten.

At St. Ann Infirmary in Ocho Rios, nurses and volunteers from McClurkin’s church, Perfecting Faith

Church, as well as Faith Care staff, lent a hand.

“There are so many  [residents] and all of them have been left and destitute and the infirmary cares

for them,” said McClurkin.

“They have no family. Some of them are grossly deformed. Some are mentally retarded. All of them

are in a bad state, urinating and defecating on themselves and just [in] need of love,” he continued.

“And the staff there works very hard, but there’s only a little they can do. So we brought in supplies,

some medical supplies and we came in and washed them down and changed linens, and I gave some

haircuts and just loved on the people.”
