Mission Trip - Nicaragua, 2017

August 19, 2017
By Cathy Overgaauw

Nicaragua, 2017

I am very thankful to be writing about yet another mission trip.

The experience last year was very positive and rewarding.
It was a learning experience for me along with the people in Nicaragua.
This year I can use my knowledge from last year and approach the trip with 
Confidence and excitement!
 
We have been preparing for some time now and have monthly meetings at different team members houses.  I hosted a meeting in March at my place.
The kits for the different projects have been mostly put together at this time.
There are many returning team members along with some new recruits.
 
This year we also have a dentist and his wife joining our team.
The dentist will be giving free dental care and his wife is teaching different ways to use milk bags through weaving and crocheting.  They are made into mats and 
beach or utility bags.
 
The church we are going to this year is in Ticuantipi. The name of the church is, Llama de Fuego (Flame of Fire).
The denomination is "Roca de Salvacion"......which means "Rock of Salvation".
 
We visited this church last year and met the pastor.   It was exciting to hear that there are many possible students who are eager to sign up for the sewing program.  There are also many children that will come and be taught songs, dance , stories and crafts.
 
I am very grateful to the donations I have received to make this trip possible once again!   
Our departure date is October 24, 2017
Lord willing we will return November 4, 2017
Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare to go and also during our time in Nicaragua!  
 
Galatians 6: 9, Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
