We have had another amazing day on the mission field today. We started  bright and early with Alice sharing a devotion to encourage us not to grow weary in doing good. After breakfast burritos we headed outside at the Casa to work on the chicken house and the fields. We tilled, planted and fenced until lunch, while some of the girls chopped vegetables  to cook in the village. Janet even got the girls to use a little elbow grease to straighten up the rooms at the Casa while the other ladies were working outside. After lunch we packed the truck with candy and flip flops and headed up the road to El Platanal. What a fun village! The children were happy to have their nails painted and to color pictures. The nurse saw many people that needed medical help. We cooked a big pot of chicken, rice and vegetables and filled their bowls and their tummies. We also filled their hearts with Jesus. When we got back we all got to help our team mate, Teresa,  celebrate her birthday in Nicaragua. She got to experience  a Nica birthday tradition of having a raw egg busted on her head topped with a cup of flour. Then we enjoyed chocolate birthday cake with banana icing. God is doing amazing things in Nicaragua!! Continue to pray for our team as we finish out our week.
      Tomorrow part of the team will join a team from Principle De Paz Baptist church and serve the community of Somotillo.  The city started a volunteer fire department, one of the members of our team brought in some equipment to give to them.  We will be cooking and serving lunch to the Fire Dept., Police Dept. and Mayors office.  Nica church learning to engage the community and “Be the Church.  God is so Good and the Kingdom grew some more today.  Thank you LORD
