A weekend in Managua.

Fraser Valley HANDS Team:

AHHHHHHAAAAHHH!!!! (*insert best Tarzan noise*) was heard yesterday throughout the tree tops as the team took a zip line tour in Granada.  It was epic. David flew like Superman, Harry flew like Ironman, and Karan flew like Wonder Woman.  It was a rather super day!  After the team went zip lining, we hopped into the car for a quick zip over to Lake Managua and a tour of some of the 365 islands on a boat ride. One of the islands is populated only with monkeys. After the boat tour we jumped in the car again for a speedy ride up to the active volcano. Pictures were taken and sulfur was spelt, and then we were off again to go to the Nicaraguan market Huembez. It was an experience and a half. We focused mostly on the tourist side, but then Lester took us through the market used by the locals. The smells and the sights may have been a little hard on some of our not quite healed stomachs.  David on the other hand felt quite at home.  We then entertained the locals as some of us enthusiastically cheered the Holland team to victory. (Most Nicaragua is cheering for Costa Rica because one of the players is from there!) We felt at home at dinner, as we were taken to Pizza Hut.  (We also spent time in a pottery shop, learning how to make different pottery.)

This morning we woke up to go to Church. It was a wonderful experience being able to praise the Lord with believers from Nicaragua. How good it is when brothers get together in communion. From church, we drove to the ocean. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the Lord’s creation, and relaxing with one another. We are now at Nathan and Kim’s for dinner. What a blessing we can spend time with Nathan, Kim, and their family. It has been a joy seeing how their lives have also been touched here in Nicaragua.

We head back to Matagalpa tomorrow for our final days of work. It is so crazy that we have only a few days left before heading back to Canada.  Our Lord is so good!  Blessings to you and yours.
