Come and let us go up to the Mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob: He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths. Isaiah 2:3
That is exactly what the Mission Team did today climbing the mountain to Cacau. The walk up the mountain tested us all in various ways on many levels. Physically it was very demanding; overcoming gravity and the heat. Spiritually, the team had time to reflect on God’s great creation, and how blessed we are in America to have a life that is so easy compared to Nica living. We were honored to travel to a place where so few North Americans have had the pleasure to behold. We were able to see how amazing and beautiful Nicaragua really is. The view at the top of the mountain is amazing and to think that not many people will ever see this view. In addition to the view we were able to walk to a waterfall. After we caught our breath, ate the best-ever peanut butter and jelly sandwiches prepared by Mama Maria, and reflect on the view we had a time of worship in the church. The service was powerful, the pastor was passionate, and the congregation engaged and welcoming. We were in awe and humbled that the local people honored us by attending a worship service and blessed us with a spirit filled time of worship.
He has made everything beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
The Lovell Family
We are all blessed in many ways by GOD. Today a small group was blessed by being given the chance to venture to three different villages; Santa Theresa, Cofradia, and Casa Blanca . I was a part of this small blessed group. In each village we handed out two bags of food per person, items of clothing, and we shared the never ending love of our wonderful Lord. In one particular location we stopped in a school and shared with the children. One of the largest blessings of the day was to see their faces as we shared the word of GOD with them, and their happiness when we passed out the food and clothing and even a bit of candy. In the other two locations we had a lot of fun playing games such as soccer and running foot races for small prizes. The Holy Spirit was very present with us all day long as we moved from location to location sharing the Lord with people. We are all very thankful for the experiences we gathered today and look forward to seeing what the lord has in store for us on the rest of our mission trip. KK
