La Ceiba Region [Nicaragua]

December 13, 2017

I have always wanted to go on a mission trip but life seemed to always throw me a curve.  This time it didn't, and everything fell into place for me to go.

I enjoyed getting to know everyone on my team, the people of the Phoenicia compound, the Living Water hosts, and the villagers of La Ceiba.

What changed me the most was seeing the faces on the children when we brought out the soccer ball and football.  I had a blast throwing the football to the kids!  I will never forget hearing two of the men in my group open up about what they were experiencing and how I was in the same boat as them when they said they "did not feel adequate enough" for this trip, but how God opened their eyes to what it really means to love your neighbor.
