(1) Answer
You have a non interference motor so theres no damage to the valves or guides. You will need to realign the marks on the cam sproket and crank sproket then reintasll the timing belt. Usually a jumped timing belt is due to a faulty tensioner so give it a close look or even replace it if you havent already.
