I leave about 6pm tomorrow night for Managua, Nicaragua. I will meet the rest of the team of 23 at the airport about 3pm. With so many we have to arrive very early of course. I am joining the team from Tennessee, lead by Terry Davis, a friend and member of Vision 2 Hear, who is also the pastor of The Movement.
This trip makes my 8th time ( I think) to Padre Ramos, working alongside our dear friends at the Youth Ranch. I am looking forward to seeing our friends and the kids again who make up the wonderful community there. We expect to work with various projects like passing out Bibles in nearby villages, along with helping feed some people in the more impoverished areas. In the past, we have done many things like this before, even delivering sinks and ovens.
In the evenings we will have Bible studies and several of us will perform music and share testimonies and preach. We are expecting an awesome week.
On June 6, Trevor and I will take a bus and make our way to meet up with a team from New Vision Church in Siguatepeque, Honduras. While in Honduras we will work building a playground for a church and then hosting VBS for kids for a few days toward the end of the week.
I’ve been to Honduras a few times also but that has always been to San Pedro Sulu. This time we will be in Siguatepeque. Other times we did much work with orphanages and churches, mostly performing and preaching. This will be a little different but still very excited to be able to help build something that they will use to reach more people for Christ.
The missionary there recently launched a skateboarding ministry and I hope to be able to talk with him about how we can be a bigger part of that. V2H has had a skateboarding ministry before called Elevate and we’ve done work in El Salvador with it before, helping build ramps and host an large outreach event.
So anyway, I’ve got to get back to packing and cleaning. Thanks for your prayers and remembering us over the next two weeks. I’ll be limited to internet access while away but will post as I can. Adios!
