Remember the Tom Hanks movie, “Terminal?”  The one in which his character is stuck living in an airport terminal. Today felt a bit like that for our team. We were up at 2:30 a.m. Managua time (that is 1:30 in Abbotsford). We went through security and had to get an exit...

After a couple of days without Wi-Fi we are now back online and reconnected to the world.  It's amazing how 'lost' you feel when you aren't connected through the online world.   Yet we all survived and its probably not a bad thing being forced to connect face to face w...

So today was our final day with the Nicaraguan students and it was super sad to say goodbye to them. We have had made so many amazing connections with the students and it never feels like we have enough time with them. First thing, we had a closing assembly with the wh...

I'm very lucky to be writing on such a great day!
Our day started off with an extra half hour of sleep. Breakfast started at 7, and we had a healthy helping of rice and  beans, an omelet and some orange juice. Unlike most other days, instead of being driven to Centro d...

Starting off our morning bright and early at 6am is always the best way to start our morning. (incoming sarcasm) We were all getting out of our beds getting dressed and ready for our delicious breakfast of pancakes, eggs, fruit, and orange juice. Mornings are always th...

We started the day off with the typical breakfast and a delayed departure from the Nehemiah Center. We knew there would be heavy traffic like yesterday morning, but there was no need to worry because Lester our chauffer is a very good driver and knew some back roads th...

Much to the dismay of most of our team members, this morning started off with breakfast at blessed 6:30. After a meal of eggs and pancakes we headed off to start the new week at Centro de Fey. Once we arrived we headed straight upstairs to the tiny grade 11 classroom a...

Today started off with breakfast: omelets and fresh fruit. Then we meet our driver, Lester’s, family and headed to Virbo, Lester’s church. It was an amazing experience as we saw the passion in everyone there, young and old. Even though singing in Spanish was difficult,...

Wow today was eventful. We were lucky enough to get to sleep in till 7 today which was a blessing. We got fried eggs, fruit, rice, and beans which strangely enough tasted like hash browns for breakfast. After that we left for Centro de Fe to paint the school's desks wi...

Day 1.

I was relieved to find no bugs/geckos in my bed this morning as I had spotted some scurrying around the walls the night before. Waking up from a not so restful sleep around 6:40 we (the girls room) slowly took our turns getting ready before the 7:00am breakfast,...
