The before…supplies, crafts, toys, candy, clothes, shoes, toothbrushes, toothpaste!
The after…8 ministry suitcases packed and ready to go!
It is so unreal that we are leaving tomorrow. I feel as if at any moment I will pinch myself and wake up from this wonderful dream. The team will be meeting at 1 pm tomorrow to head for the airport. Our flight leaves at 5:45 pm.
It would be very easy for me to feel completely overwhelmed tomorrow. However, I hope to remember something a very dear person in my life asked me. 1) Who’s mission trip is this? 2) Who do I think I am, that I could ruin God’s plan?
Our only responsibility while in Nicaragua, is to love. To share Christ’s love.
1 John 3:16-18, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. “
See you in Nicaragua!!
