The end (New Life Nicaragua)

As I sit here leisurely, reminiscing over the last 10 days, I can hardly wrap my mind around the fact that I will be in California tonight. We have been extremely busy, yet somehow completely relaxed during this trip. We are running on "Nica" time. There's no need to hurry or rush; no pressing

Colegio Cristiano Havilah

Nicaragua Here We Come!

The boxes and bags are packed with donations and are all just under weight.  The guitar is safely in its TSA approved case so that it will make the trip and we have a reliable guitar.  We have gotten all of our shots, medications, and instructions for travel.  The schedule is worked through for a
