Well we have made it safely to Nicaragua and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of this team. It already seems like God is doing a good work in the hearts of those that are on the team, so I can only imagine what He has in store for us this week.
We had a pretty uneventful travel day and despite having only a short layover – managed to make it just in time for our departing flight from Miami. We then arrive in Nicaragua, in the middle of their hot, dry season (it hasn’t rained since November) and it starts raining… and not just raining, but pouring for about two and a half hours! What a blessing as we ended up with much cooler temps than expected after the rain.
Today was a fairly relaxed, but important day for us as we had to prep all the supplies for our clinics that will be starting on Monday. All the pills and vitamins had to be sorted, bagged and labeled for distribution from our clinic pharmacy. This process took us over four hours, but we did get to take a break and enjoy a nice dinner prepared by our favorite Nicaragua cook – Maria!
Tomorrow morning we’ll join the Buzbees for church at Verbo and then have a relaxing Sabbath afternoon to enjoy some silence and solitude before heading to evening church in Los Cedros. Our Wildwood teams have invested much energy and resources into the community of Los Cedros and it is always exciting to join them for worship and see families we have built homes for and children we have taken to camp.
We appreciate your prayer support and will do our best to have daily updates. Pray that God would work in us and through us in a powerful way. Don’t forget to follow our twitter updates at twitter.com/wwoutreach.
