March, 18th: The Last Day

March 18, 2012 1 comment

Our last full day in Nicaragua was spent mostly on a hot dusty bus travelling between Rama and Managua.  The trip took about six and a half hours.  The bus carried us through the heart of Nicaragua, over mountains and flat highlands.  As we headed west the landscape became very dry and rugged.  There were […]

Saturday March 17th, 2012 From Bluefields to Rama

March 17, 2012 3 comments

Today was a day anticipated with both great excitement and great trepidation.  We left Bluefields this morning via a panga (high speed boat).  Pastor Pedro was there to see us off.  The trip took just under two hours.  Hold on to your hat was the buzzword around the boat. We have arrived in Rama, which […]

March 17, 2012 2 comments

Today was the last work day, but also our last day to spend with our brothers and sisters at Lomas Frescas BIC.  The day has been very hot, so the work was again slow.  Some of us have had some issues with illness, but most have recovered.  There was a heavy feeling today as we […]

Thursday, March 15, 2012 Less Rain!!

March 15, 2012 3 comments

Well, it did rain a little (okay… a lot) this morning.  However, the sun did start shining after lunch.  The work site was a little more bearable, and it only took us three days to figure out that we could buy muck boots for US $8.50 less than a block away from the hotel.  The […]

Wednesday, March 14, 2012 Buenos Noches!  It has been another very muddy day on the jobsite.  Despite the conditions were able to get a great deal done today.  We are developing better communication with our new friends here.  Fortunately, most of the jobs are simple and repetitive.  The kids on the site continue to outwork […]

Sorry about the day late.  We will post today’s tonight as well.  The internet infrastructure is somewhat dicey. Tuesday, March 13, 2012:  Rain!  (Sort of) Yes, overnight and this morning it rained buckets, which of course, turned the jobsite into a giant mud pit.  It was raining when we got to the jobsite, but work […]

Day 4: What a work day!

March 12, 2012 4 comments

It is very clear to us that we are not in the Best Western Las Mercedes anymore.  The rooms are very basic, and mostly clean.  The showers are a little challenging as you cannot touch the faucet handle without getting a little stray voltage.  Bluefields is a very interesting place.  There is a mix of […]

We made it to Bluefields!

Greetings from Bluefields!   We arrived safely yesterday afternoon. On Saturday evening we had a wonderful ministry supper with Edgar- the leader of the BIC Nicaragua Churches (kind of like our Bishop). It was great to hear what is happening here in Nicaragua with the 103 Nicaraguan BIC churches. He asked that we pray for […]

! Buenos Noches!

Wow! What a day! It’s 10 pm and we’ve just arrived back at the Hotel San Jose to marvel at the new found relationships and the unexpected God moments that each of us has experienced this week! We spent the last 3 hours at the home of Pastor German, under a perfectly clear starlit night, […]

Our morning began with us meeting at Pastor German’s church to admire the completed handiwork of the team at the church. The roof looks great!

This morning when we arrived at the church, Johana, the aunt of the premature twin baby boys was waiting to take us to their home. The tiny infants lay on a bed under mosquito netting in a cardboard hut supported by wooden polls. The mother placed the babies in our arms and we began to […]
