Today the GO Nicaragua team was able to continue what we started yesterday; digging trenches for what will soon be the walls of a local church here in Puerto Cabezas. This was no easy task because the ground is clay and we struck water only a foot and half down but through the strength of the Holy Spirit and mutual encouragement (and perhaps a little help from hard working locals) we were able to finish our task. We were also able to install lighting and a tarp which is used as a temporary wall.
This trip has been such a blessing to us missionaries being able to serve God and share his love with the people of Puerto Cabezas and Daukra as well as a blessing to the people who we were able to serve. I know that I, as well as everyone else on this trip, consider being able to go on this trip a great privilege. God has watched over us and kept us from sickness and injury. It is with reluctant hearts that we leave Nicaragua in two days because we all wish we could stay and continue the work here. There is still much work that needs to be done at the church here and that’s why we are planning to return here next year! Please be praying for a safe trip home for all of us and for our trip next year.
