April 6th Update

Blessings from Casa De Shelly…..I have no idea how to start this e-mail except to say that God is amazing.  After the most amazing day of serving God to got to be apart of seeing 4 FBC Roanoke pray to receive Christ.  I can say that revival broke out at Casa De Shelly and it is so exciting to see God show off.  The day started with the radio and then to Pascuala to serve our GOD and the people of Nicaragua.  Part of the students and leaders picked up trash and cleaned the village and the others help Angel get started on the next new house.  Last night was another exciting adventure as we spent a couple hours with the youth from Prince of Peace in Praise and Worship.  Today we are going to work with the church as we pick up the trash on the streets of Somotillo.

April 5th Update

Hola from Sunny Somotillo!  What a blessed Easter we had today.  Our day began with a sermon at the hotel – then off for the four hour, school bus ride, to Somotillo!   After lunch we went to Village of  Pascuala.  We were able to see the Housing Project in the works.  All I can say, (like Donald says)  is “When  God shows up HE shows off” – and boy has he shown off in this village!  It is amazing to see how far this village has come – from black plastic and cardboard houses to cement block, leak proof homes.  The families are grateful and are sure to know that these are blessings from our Heavenly Father.  We were able to share ice-cream with the village, share the “Good News”, and rice and beans.

This is not my first time on this adventure in Nicaragua.  However, there are several in this group who it is a first for.  It is refreshing to see the excitement in their eyes.  My hope is that they will carry AND SHARE this excitement with them for years to come.

One of my friends shared a prayer with me before leaving for this trip.  She prayed that our Heavenly Father would use my hands like the vine of a squash… one that travels and covers lots of ground.  I share this same prayer with our group… May we all be like a vine – spreading the good news and Jesus’ love to many.
