The Immanuel team of 13 people left at 6 a.m. on November 4, 2011 from Buffalo airport for Nicaragua. We had a good trip and arrived there to be met by Lester and Peter Kuipers. We all piled into the van and were met with our first impressions of Managua. For some it was overwhelming and for others who were there for second or third times in was interesting to see if there had been changes. When we arrive at the Nehemiah Center we had orientation and got to know what was in store for our week in Nicaragua. Our evening closed with early lights out and off to bed, we were bushed.

Since we arrived on a Friday, both Saturday and Sunday were spent as culture awareness days and were interesting with lots of sites to see and impressions to absorb. We soon realized that Nicaragua is a beautiful country with interesting geographic features. From the Pacific Ocean to the volcanoes and the jungle like growth of trees and shrubs it was all breathtaking.
