I can't wait! I've been waiting for this time to come! I want to pack my bags already....oh wait.....um.. I have to wait 3 more months? What am I babbling about? Oh yeah, I am going to Nicaragua with a team that is installing water filtration system at a mission. Don is a friend of mine and when he found out I was wanting to go this year, since I finally have enough money saved, he asked me if I wanted to go? Ok...and it's close to the town where my friends Pedro and Maria live. So I will be able to go spend time with them as well as help at the mission. A week...do some loving on some people there and help at the mission and Pedro's church and hopefully not fry my skin! Prayers needed: that the new dormitory gets finished there at the mission before we leave so Don can put up his solar panels (or trip might be delayed); more people to go and safety for the trip....and well being before we get there. It is going to be a different experience for me. I've never traveled to a third world country. I'm excited but a bit nervous at the same time. Of course I'll be taking my camera. It's just another extension of God's love in my life being shared with other people. We are all God's children.
