Each town in Nicaragua is known for a different product they make and sell. The next town away from Nagarote is La Paz Centro. The town is known for bricks and tiles made from a special clay that they harvest from local farm land. The group was able to take a tour of how these bricks are made. They each decorated a brick that will eventually be used on our mission farm in our building process.

Pastor's Conference

Pastor Bobby Maynard from Thrive Church in Winter Haven, Florida, led a two day men's conference. Pastors here have not had the opportunity to attend seminary, and they are hungry for theology. I was only able to catch the tail end of the conference, but everyone that attended said it was a powerful training and experience.

Children's Church Day 2

Preparing the pinata for VBS

                                         Face painting is always a huge hit with the children.



On June 25th, our team from Thrive Church of Winter Haven, Florida arrived in Nicaragua.
After their arrival, we gave them a quick tour of Nagarote on the train. 

Yvette had a chance to drive a bixi. A bixi ride costs 7 cordobas, which
 is about a quarter a ride anywhere in town.
