Monday, June 27

Today we have two sessions of VBS at Dream of Louisa. This school was established for the poorest children who can not afford to go to school. (school is not free here) We begin VBS with a group song called, "Chi Chi Wa" followed by "The Chicken Dance." The children then rotate through several stations including face painting, finger nail painting, carnival type games, balloon animals, music/instuments, and several arts and crafts. We wrap up the VBS by presenting the plan of salvation with the use of salvation bracelets. I hope to post pictures this evening. It is taking FOREVER to get even a few pictures to load, so please be patient with us. Everyone on the team is doing well and are all contributing in His work. Please continue to lift us all in your prayers. If you can help us with our biggest prayer request...a great turn out at our revival which is Thursday and Friday night.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

This morning we began with a traditional breakfast of eggs, rice and beans. The group then headed out for an adventure as we explored the quaint little town of Nagarote, Nicaragua. For lunch we enjoyed baked chicken and mixed vegetables. Following lunch, we packaged rice and beans that we plan to distribute later in the week as we invite people to attend our revival. The team then worked diligently creating cardboard testimonies. During the evening church service at Alfa Y Omega, we shared our cardboard testimonies and made many new friends. The day was capped off by a supper of fried cheese, plantains and.....more rice and beans.

Mission Team

Day 1

We spent our first day getting adjusted and preparing for the week. We took a tour of the town, prepared food packages and completed our cardboard testimonies. Tonight we will attend church at Alfa Y Omega. Tomorrow we hit the ground running and are prepared for a busy week. Please keep us in your prayers as we reach out to the people of Nicaragua.

Safe Arrival

We have arrived safely in Nicaragua and are thankful for the prayers. Daily posts and pics will begin tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers as we all seek His guidance and wisdom to do what is right for His kingdom. Jesus te ama!
