Hey we’ve made it! Touched down here in Nica and boarded the bus for the Buzbees. We had an incident free day, ate overpriced airport food and tried to catch a bit of sleep on the planes since most of us have been up since 5:30am.
But we’ve settled in and are really excited about what God has in store for us on this mission. Each mission and each team is so unique and I was reflecting on the fact that this is the 10th mission team (I think… old age memory loss is setting in) that I’ve lead down here. It’s pretty cool to think all the high school and college students that have been a part of our Nicaragua teams over the last 9 years and how God has used this mission to save the lost, call others to a deeper walk and given all a greater understanding of our purpose as Christians being taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
We’ve had a few wrinkles in our plans, but it just reminded me that they should never have been our plans anyway. In our team training, we talk a lot about being flexible and following God’s plans over ours and I think we are going to really learn how to do that this mission. We are still following the framework of previous missions, but it definitely will be a new a different experience. But in true God form, He shows up in our weakness, dependance and brokenness and that is the attitude we are praying for individually and corporately as a team.
We appreciate all of you partnering with us in prayer. We’ll do our best to keep everyone updated here, on Facebook and also on Twitter.
