Nicaragua Update

We worked hard and got dirty today. I haven't downloaded those pics yet, but you can check out the svmissions blog to check it out.

A couple days ago we went to the orphanage and got to hold and love the kids there. This is me with Saraela. She is so cute!

This is my hubby with her...

(no....we are not adopting!)

Today we worked all day doing nothing but hard manual labor to help construct the Village of Hope for some of the girls from the dump. Oh my goodness....I'm feeling the pain. I spent 3 to 4 hours of today loading and unloading cinder blocks into wheelbarrows. I was trying to be good to my back and so I was bending at the knees....that is equivelent to doing a squat! My legs and bumm are HURTING already! I need lots of strength for tomorrow! I will spend the day playing at the beach with a child from the dump. We go as a group but we are each solely responsible for one kid.

Again, for more info and pics go to www.svmissions.blogspot.com


  1. Looks like you guys are custom made for that little girl (ha,ha). Great job you guys on all of the hard work, sounds like you all deserve a day at the beach. Thanks for all that you are doing and for keeping us informed about all that is going on, it makes me feel both proud of you and apart of the whole thing. Love Dad

  2. WOW, WOW, WOW...I want that sweet little girl!!! We have already adopted two and would love another. She is just off the charts precious!! I personally could not leave an orphanage empty handed but that is just the desure God has given me personally.

  3. Both of you look great. Thank you for the up dates, I can't wait to get home from work to check your blog. I love the pics, I bet the kids are really loving them. Shows them you are ok. The baby is adorable TJ you are a natural. She looks like she is talking to you and making cents. Love you both. Joan Eileen
