Nicaragua Fears Update

Ok, I don't have much time, because I should totally be sleeping, but I just wanted to give ya'll a quick update.

It seems as though your prayers and encouragment are working. I haven't had to truly FACE any great fears yet, but I have had a real sense of peace since I've been here. I've actually sat at a table with geckos crawling on the ceiling above my head...and stayed there. And today as we painted the school there were spiders (little ones) pretty much everywhere and I was ok. I just kept painting and moved on. The zipline is still to come. But honestly I haven't thought about it much. I'm just trying to take each day as it comes. The only weird thing I've done is when I sleep. I can't bring myself to face the wall (because bugs climb on walls). Other than that it's pretty much been a non-issue so far.

thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. Keep them coming. God is listening and answering!

A lot has happened since we've been here. So don't forget to check the mission blog for updates! You can leave comments there too!

  1. Good strategy about the sleep thing!! I hope you are enjoying your mission trip and tolerating well the challenges of being in a foreign country. You are going to make some great memories and affect people in some very positive ways...

    Take care!

  2. It was truly wonderful seeing both of you in front of the beautiful gold school.I see a sweet peace on your faces, I am so thankful to the Lord for both of you.I am reading and rereading everything, Im just not good at the typing thing so I only put a little something for your eyes to see. Love Mom


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
