Nicaragua: June ’08

17 Jun

My favorite day Today I am up at 5:30am, pancakes for breakfast, a devotion on prayer and off we went. We headed the opposite direction we had gone the past two days. We stopped at a school and were able to go in and pray for the children. They were adorable. Then we split into teams. I was able to use my Spanish quite a bit. At one point I broke off from the group with a Nicaraguan woman and her two children. We went down a long path to about 5 houses. I LOVED it! Everyone was quite surprised to see a gringa walk up to their house yelling…”Buenas!” After we passed out several tracts of the gospel of Luke we headed to El Jabon for a coke and a very COLD dip in the river. This is where the men from our group were introduced to the local wildlife (leeches) however that is another story which I would gladly share, just ask me. After our dip, we headed back to base camp then to Julio’s house (the man of peace) for another film. People came (walking of course) bringing their own chairs to sit on. We had a wonderful audience, wonderful weather and a few professions of faith. It is amazing to see God’s work right in front of your eyes.

Usually they just check the documents, but it seems that the police are more interested in extracting some bribe money now. As soon as they see the foreign plates they pull us over and start looking for any irregularity- from people sleeping in the back of the truck to not having emergency triangles! Ridiculous. So far we have stood strong and only…
