Mission Nicaragua: Day 8

It is always a bittersweet day when it is our last on the worksite. We were excited to complete the construction of the walls and begin the process of having the interior ready for a concrete floor. The only thing lacking is to put on the roof, which is a bit beyond our skill set! We also completed the painting project at the school and it looks great. The tough part of the day, however, is saying goodbye. So many kids would come by everyday to simply hang out with us and play with us during our breaks – and we had a blast building relationships with them. It’s always hard to say goodbye.

Last night after dinner we had a very special celebration… a surprise birthday party for Debbie. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pics because I went down pretty hard after the workday with some sort of sickness. I’m not sure what it is yet, but it wasn’t fun for sure… but I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Rob Campbell of the FSU med team and his care and medication. While I was resting, our team had their group time of worship and prayer and I hear God’s Spirit moved in a powerful way. Our times at night have been really powerful this year.

Tomorrow is our last day and looks to be a busy one! We will start the day with a visit to the dump and then prayer time at Sister Ruby’s house. Then the team choose a zip line excursion for their afternoon fun time (after our annual visit to the market). We’ll finish it all up with our team dinner out at a restaurant. Then we will be awaiting the arrival of our camp team later tonight. As always, we appreciate your continued prayer support.
