A Nicaraguan mission trip

Our week-long family mission trip to Nicaragua awed me: the time spent with my twin granddaughters, and the opportunity to see mission work in a beautiful country I had heard about for years. The 3 hour plane ride from Houston to Managua was not too bad (after our long trip to Japan.)

One of the greatest blessings was the families who traveled with us. Five families represented, with 18 people – more kids than adults and all got along well. The team members all have exceptional hearts for God and people, and it was a joy to get to know each one of them!

I made it through the trip just fine and did not tire out – until after we returned. My health seems to be fine. And thank you for your prayers; it made a difference.We  cried to leave these sweet children, they warmed our hearts so much!

  1. I am glad you had such a wonderful trip and that God got you all back home. I pray that everything goes well with your treatments and that you are totally healed and well very soon, as you continue to allow God to use you to serve others.
