Esteli Nicaragua

Smithville HANDS Team:

Today we had breakfast at the Nehemiah Centre abd then all piled into the van for the long ride up into the mountains of Nicaragua to the northern town of Esteli.

We again worked on digging the foundations for the outdoor assembly/classroom are which will be quite large. The holes we are digging are about 4 feet square and 6 1/2 feet deep in heavy clay. There are fourteen of these to be dug. Needless to say, this is work that would be done by machine at home in Canada. But this is Nicaragua! 

We are here to simply serve and thayt is what we are trying to do. 

Our devotions are every evening so far. For the next 2 nights we are staying at the Paramount hotel. It is OK. Not a 5 star but clean.

On Wednsday afternoon we will be leaving Esteli for the time being and saying goodbye to our friends here and returning to the Nehemiah Centre in Managua. 


Peter Kuipers and LestherGonsalaz have been an inspiration to us.On Thursday "Learning Day" visiting some other schools and projects
