Day Off

Newmarket HANDS Team:

Great is our God the creator of this universe.  We witnessed the beauty of that today in a variety of ways. We are being encouraged in our faith by the dedication of the teachers we have met and the joy and love of our guides.

We had the opportunity to see some of Nicaragua and to have some fun.  We discovered that here there are towns that are devoted to a single trade.  Furniture towns, pottery towns etc.  We stopped at a potters to learn how they make the pottery here.  The shop and house are all in one.  We walked right past their kitchen.

Next stop was zip lining in the rain forest.  What a view of God's creation. Next a boat ride in Lake Nicaragua to see the islands and to stop at monkey island. 

Our last stop was at an active volcano.  

On our journey we witnessed the disparity between the rich and poor in Nicaragua. We witnessed many who graze their cows along the road side have very small homes and then we saw some mansions on the islands.

Prayer Requests
Thanks for safety in our travels and at the work site.

Please pray for good health and safety.  Some of the team members have experienced some stomach problems.  The change of diet has had its effect.

Prayer that we may continue to have servant hearts to do the work God has prepared for us to do.
