Mission Nicaragua :: Day 7

Posted: August 3, 2007 in Mission Life, Student Ministry

It’s hard to put into words what exactly we have been seeing and experiencing everyday of life right outside the dump. I spent some time tearing down Diamaris’ old walls, which consist of wood, pallates, scrap tin and cloth and was just really overwhelmed when I actually took in the sights of what she is living in – “her house.” We got alot of work done today, nearly completing one wall and getting halfway up on the other walls. We had the whole team back out there – so everyone was in good health and ready to work and everyone gave their all as we are really hoping to get the house near completion before we leave.

Some of the team members had another great day playing with the neighborhood kids when they weren’t mixing concrete, hauling blocks or making rebar forms. It is so much fun to interact with these kids as we are learning their games and just giving them some physical affection and undivided attention that they lack on a regular basis.

It’s hard to believe that this adventure is almost over for us. Please continue to pray for us as we complete the mission God has given us. Sorry for no pics tonight… it’s late and the connection is slow. Hopefully some tomorrow.

    Hi Team!It is hard to believe your time in Nicaragua is almost over for this year. I know it has been a blessing for the lives you are touching, not just for this week +, but for many years to come- in their lives and yours. Zechariah 4:6 comes to mind: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.” The God of hope is working through each of you. May He bless your remaining time in Nicaragua, keep your safe, and grant travel mercies for your safe return.Love,Cindy Wright
