Day 1 Sabado

Posted on March 10, 2012

! Buenos Noches! Good Evening!  Praise God for yesterday’s safe travels and the safe travels for the team from Canada.  He was with us all of the way.  We also learned that Glenn is in better shape than many of the younger members of the team.   We have been making meaningful friendships with our brothers and sisters from Canada as we toured some of the areas surrounding Managua.   Many of us were amazed at the sights, sounds, and smells of the country.  This morning’s itinerary began with a fantastic buffet breakfast with some familiar and traditional Nicaraguan foods.    After breakfast we hopped in the sixteen passenger van with Marshall at the helm.  We began by taking a relaxed boat ride around some islands on Lake Nicaragua.  There are many homes of the Nicaraguan wealthy class on these islands, which are in great contrast to some of the areas we drove through to get there.  After the boat we drove to Masaya to the open air market for lunch and some souvenirs.  Many of us were able to hone our haggling skills while rubbing shoulders with the people there.  At lunch, we met one of our brothers from The BIC  Church in Masaya named Charlie.  The day of sightseeing ended with a visit to an active volcano at Masaya.  Many of us were amazed at the majesty of God’s creative ability on display there.  Tomorrow we will fly to Bluefields to begin our ministry there.   ! Que Dios los bendiga!

    Hoping you can all get a good night of sleep! I am pryaing for each of you, and the relationships you will develope over the next several days. Our sermon today was about service and having a servant heart, because of our love of Jesus we are called to serve.
    Thank you for your servant hearts.I also thank God for the servant hearts of the people of Nicaragua. Have a great day tomorrow.
    Love to all but, especially to Glenn ( I miss you !) It is 8:50PM
