Clearview Day 9: Some Reflections on Our Time in Nicaragua

Yesterday was the last day at our work site. Although the project is far from finished we were privileged to be part of preparing the foundations for the two classrooms. We look forward to seeing pictures of the completed rooms filled with pre-kindergarten children.

Today we had the opportunity to visit two of the schools where EduDeo has done considerable work in the past and one school where six new classrooms are currently under construction. It is gratifying to see the impact that EduDeo donors have had in providing these school facilities. It was powerful to hear from the three principles who shared their stories of God’s faithfulness during times of significant hardships, personal challenge, and political turmoil. Please continue to pray for the students, teachers, and principals in Christian schools in Nicaragua.

As we complete our time here and reflect on everything we have experienced, we are very much aware that this trip is not so much about what we have accomplished - how many holes we have dug, how much re-bar we have tied, how much concrete we have poured, how many purlins we have washed and painted.   Rather, the significance of this trip is much more about how WE have been impacted. The life stories of those who worked alongside us this past week, of the school Principals we met, of the VanderWees and Holtrop families have given us great cause to praise God for His faithfulness. We look forward to sharing some of these stories with you in the coming weeks.

Tomorrow morning we leave Nicaragua and fly home, with a 9 hour layover in Mexico City.
