This last week in Nicaragua has been nothing short of amazing!
On our last day in country, our Seniors enjoyed an excursion day at the Masaya Volcano, the Masaya marketplace, and swimming in the Laguna de Apoyo (a volcanic crater that is filled with natural spring water).
Although our students enjoyed today, what they will take away from this week has nothing to do with sight-seeing. What they will take away from this week is how they experienced the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives. When our student came to a foreign country and could not speak the language or fully understand the culture, they had no choice but to depend on the Holy Spirit. But, as we discussed earlier tonight in our Group Time, just because we will be returning to a place where we do understand the language and we are a part of the culture, that does not mean that we need to depend on the Holy Spirit any less next week as we did this past week. We are all so very inadequate to live the lives that God has called us to without being fully surrendered to Him each day!
There are a few people that need to be recognized and thanked for making this week so incredible...
- Thank you so much to David and Beverly Shivar (and the whole BMDMI team) for facilitating and allowing us to partner with their hearts for the people of Nicaragua.
- Thank you so much to Tracy Hathaway, Jason Myers, and Leigh Renn for giving up a week of their lives, being away from their families, and chaperoning our Senior Mission Trip.
- Thank you so much to you, our parents, for financially sacrificing and investing in the life of your student to enable them to be a part of our team.
