It all started when...I felt in my heart this was my time. God was just pressing it on my heart that I needed to go. I enjoyed getting to know...the Living Water Staff and our house guest in Nicaragua A thing that challenged and changed me...The thing that challenged me most was my attitude. Being there taught me just how selfish and self-centered my life has been. It was truly a life changing experience for me and opened my eyes to the needs of others.
I enjoyed getting to know...Our team was an inspired combination of people from all over the US. It was such a blessing to get to spend time with other believers and see how God is moving throughout our own nation. A thing that challenged and changed me...The passion and dedication of the Salvadorian staff is amazing. They love their country, community, and Jesus. God did not need me to dig a well but I am so grateful that He chose to allow me to participate in the work He is already doing in El Salvador.
I enjoyed getting to know...My wife. That may sound odd, but I learned so much about her on this trip. We have been together for 15 years. My wife is not typically one to seek discomfort... I always knew she was strong and Godly, but seeing her on this trip made me realize just what a strong and giving person she really was. Watching her work with the children and women of the village showed me a side of her I wouldn't have seen otherwise. She was radiating with Christ's love and it was beautiful to behold.
I enjoyed getting to know...All of the staff that was there. I enjoyed becoming closer to the team that I had gone with. I also enjoyed meeting and having fun with the community we went to for that week. It was an amazing experience. Things that challenged and changed me...What challenged me the most was the heat and humidity. It was a struggle to keep doing what you were suppose to when you were hot. However, my team and I continued to fight through it and complete what we had set out to accomplish.
I enjoyed getting to know...more about LWI; staff (in-country and representatives); our wonderful team; but most of all, observing and interacting with the people of Honduras (mostly the children). Things that challenged and changed me...Seeing the standard of living in Honduras caused me to hopefully, never forget to count my blessings for the Lord's provision to us in America.
