Day 1

Mount Brydges 2015 HANDS Team:

After arriving last night in Managua airport, we headed over to the Nehemiah Centre.

Our team is grateful for the heat, even the birds that are everywhere. A welcome change from our Canadian winter. This morning we had a amazing drive up the mountain to our hotel, Coco's Place, and then had a hard day's work at the school.

The guys all had a fantastic time carting cement blocks up the hill, and the ladies painted the steel bars with protective paint.

All in all, a good day. Save for the sunburns.

So glad all went well. Praying that you will be a blessing to those there and that they will be a blessing to you. Enjoy. Keep us posted. By the way it was a glorious day here, could walk around without a coat for short periods and the sun shone after the fog lifted.
