Jessica Accepts Christ!
When only three girls showed up to Bible study on Wednesday, my first reaction was to be discouraged. I was trying to get the group restarted after my maternity leave, and out of the eight girls, only three of the youngest and least talkative showed up. I decided to shelve my carefully prepared lesson and have a “ask any question” night, convinced that this night would probably be slow and slightly awkward.
Mission Trip A Success!
18 people came down over spring break to serve Christ in Nicaragua. It was a fantastic team. They build sidewalks to stop erosion and make life more beautiful for the women living at House of Hope. Their hard work, good attitude, and adventurous spirit made the trip very fun for everyone, including the women and kids at House of Hope. April (director of House of Hope) loves the sidewalks they built and has asked us to send another team down as quick as we can. I’ll tell you, I was waking up sore for a week after this trip.
On top of building sidewalks the team also went zip-lining, volcano boarding, souvenir shopping, visited other ministries working with at-risk girls, and visited our home in Leon, Nicaragua. Yet I know from our daily devotionals that Nicaragua was not the only one touched by the interaction. See pictures and captions below.
