Before even leaving the country God moved in some big ways to help our team! Due to “a frozen plane” our Calgary group was very close to having their flight delayed until the following day. Praise God that they were able to fix the plane and even make their connecting flight in Houston. Although there bags came a day late they were all in great spirits. The rest of the group met in Atlanta and flew to where we will serve for a week in Managua, Nicaragua. We spent that night just adjusting and getting to know one another.
The following morning the group went out to various ministries to see all that we will be doing in partnership with imagine ministries. We were already able to see so many opportunities we can serve. Many people on our team were so humbled by the courage that the house mothers have who serve at a boys and girls rescue homes. In their own words they both stated that “we could not give up even if we wanted”. They are all in for the ministry, giving up everything to serve under-privileged boys and girls.
This morning Monday November 17th we will be serving in a community called Los Brasiles. The group will be participating in various projects including building out a vocational training center (mixing concrete, laying brick, painting, etc.), planting vegetation, helping to harvest from the community farm, and most importantly loving on those in the community. Please pray for our group of 19 that God would continue to use us in ways that would glorify His kingdom.
