This week has already been an incredible experience, and we are just getting started. Multiple teams have joined together this week at Casa De Shelly to form one of the largest teams ever here. Airline cancellations caused a few delays, but by Sunday night the team was assembled and ready to go. Members from Virginia,Washington DC, Georgia, and New Jersey have joined together to serve the people of Nicaragua. Over 40 people are serving this week, and we have been able to tackle multiple projects each day.
In the morning, we have had numerous testimonies, along with praise and worship led by a combined group of talented musicians and singers. The teams have visited the villages of Casablanca, Santa Teresa, Villa Esperanza, and San Francisco. Several team members have visited local schools each morning, while others have done door-to-door ministry, and the rest have worked on road renovations around the Casa. We have been able to distribute numerous Spanish New Testaments, and we have distributed much joy and happiness through the sharing of clothes, toys, and school supplies. In each village we have provided both medical care and hot food as we have engaged the communities with the love of Christ.
It has been hot, but bearable, and the team is doing great. We have enjoyed getting to know each other, and everyone is serving alongside their brothers and sisters in Christ. We appreciate your prayers as we continue to minister throughout the week.
