nicaragua…1st full day

Nicaragua update…
we made it! we ran from one terminal to another in miami and they held the plane for us.for some of our students its hard to believe they are actually here…one student said “i can’t believe i am going on a missions trip”

This is the second day in the country…actually we came in late last night. Today we are training and preparing for where we will go tomorrow. Everyone is feeling well, no issues other than John nelson losing his mind on a bus when a treeantula (a tree) touched him through the window and he thought it was a spider. Our accommodations are just fine, tomorrow we head to Masaya where we will base out for 5 days working in the southern part of the country.

Our teams spirits are high. We have laughed prayed and worked hard! First time students…josh larson is the dancing machine, pedro loves the local monkey (the monkey pulled his hair), Denis was attacked by the monkey at the facility…actually the monkey wrapped his tail around his leg. Hannah Montana is fitting right in getting involved in every new drama and song. Mike Hoggs is a great servant and basically unloaded a bus single handedly (go mike). Jessica Hatley – her hair is great! Her bags are here…no hair dryer. Anthony is entertaining us all. John the intern…first trip- lots of pics…loves to dance…Karleigh Chase is on the phone…speaking Spanish! Zach (Goliath) had 3 coffees in the airport he was bouncing off the walls. Warning Zach needs no caffeine. Cody…what can you not say. He is just Cody and is eating quite well. Cody would be the one that gets bit by the monkey…as i type this i had to stop and tell Cody to not play with the monkey…the monkey was grabbing his shirt through the cage!

the weather is hot, humid and has rained 4 times today. rain storms come in like a monsoon and pour for short periods of time. it’s really different for many of our kids. we have eaten, rice chicken and vegetables…the kids are eating well.

Pray for us!

Tomorrow the adventure continues! We will keep you posted when we can!
