Summer Trip to Nicaragua : July 21 - August 4, 2018 (Travelers can go for one or two weeks.) ; 19th annual mission trip to Nicaragua by World Service Mission Ministry. This is a wonderful trip to take as a family. The primary focus of our trip is working in a school in the rural outskirts of Managua. Some people will work on maintenance of the school and building projects, some will help in the classrooms, and others will go on home health visits or help out in the local health clinic. Nicaragua is a beautiful country so sightseeing and excursions are also included in the trip. We stay in a modest but safe and comfortable guesthouse. The trip is open to anyone of any age who is willing to work and is open to a new experience. Children under the age of 16 are welcome to go if accompanied by a parent. To sign up or for more information, please contact Jennifer McGrath or 412-334-6398 .
