Day 8

I am writing this as I lay on the floor of Rosemaria's house about to pass out from being so tired. All of us are fried from a day at of play in the sun and on the beach at Montelemar resort. After a long week of service we were fortunate enough to be able [...]

Day 7: Mombacho

Today was a day that was filled with laughter and joy, yet also tinged with sadness because it was our last day with the kids. We started off with devotions at 5:30 where we focused on Psalms 8:3-5. We learned about being humble in everything, being able to do the dirty work, and having a [...]

Day 6: Soccer

This morning started pretty early with an amazing breakfast at the house.

Day 1: We have arrived in Nicaragua

Today started very early. We met at the Medford Airport at 4am. Everyone made it through security without getting checked except Cristian and I! They took all of my food out of my bag, and some out of Cristian's too. We managed to all make the flight on-time, and had a peaceful flight to Denver. [...]
