    and taking in the view made climbing the steep steps worthwhile After seeing the statue we hurried back to the van for the long drive back to the PAN house While Chepe skillfully negotiated the bumpy roads and sometimes torrential rains some of the team members and I reviewed photos from the first day at the build site it was hard to believe that was only twelve days ago So much has happened Tomorrow we will be returning home with so many memories and life changing experiences Tonight we had our final devotion and Pastor Ian asked everyone on the team to tell us in one or two sentences what the trip has meant to them This is what we wrote Emilie This mission trip has helped me to recognize how I can share God s wealth even in the smallest ways Geraldine This mission trip has opened my eyes to witness and participate in God s plan while opening my heart to the unending love that I now share with my new found brothers and sisters in Christ Dragos This mission was an amazing experience and I feel blessed to be able to work together with our Christian brothers and sisters to build their church in Nicaragua Gwenna This mission trip revealed to me the power of prayer to heal restore and bring hope to the least of these Pastor Ian This mission trip to Nicaragua for me has reminded me of Christ s call to participate in His ongoing love and compassion for the people of Nicaragua Janet It has been a special journey with my daughter Rewarding There is much to reflect on now and the future Debora I was impressed by the spontaneous generosity and warm of all the of all the people here but especially

    each team member a crafted clay wall hanging of the native bird of Nicaragua Serving Up Hot Dogs Nica Style Then the lunch was served Hot Dogs with ketchup and mayo yes ketchup and mayo It is the Nica way to eat a hot dog After lunch was when some tearful goodbyes and hugs were shared and some work boots clothes and other things that the team had were given away Goodbyes to Our New Nica Friends After our good byes were said the team piled into the van and set off for a barrio walk in the community served by Pastor Jose Before we got to the barrio we experienced Friday afternoon rush hour through Managua It gave us a deeper appreciation of our own traffic in the GTA and as someone commented Turn the radio to 680 news oh yeah we are in Managua Pastor Jose and Congregation Member Giving Away a Mercy Bag The barrio walk was truly a blessed experience We hear the words of Jesus when he says when you have done it to the least of these you have done it to me Matt 25 Houses made of about every material imaginable left over scrap metal plastic from used shipping containers bits of wood and wire surrounded by fences of barbed wire and wooded stakes fashioned from tree limbs It is a long way from living conditions in Oakville and Mississauga Yet the people received us with a gracious hospitality and when we gave them what we called the mercy bags packages of beans sugar oil spaghetti rice and a new bible it was great to see a smile on their faces After the walk we returned to the Jardin Shalom and enjoyed a a tortilla soup and salad and many went to bed

  • Day Twelve- Thursday (Jueves) | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    They have been able to encourage and inspire many Presbyterians to come to Nicaragua to work alongside their brothers and sisters in Christ Approximately six years ago they were able to purchase this land and create Jardin Shalom as a place where visiting teams can rest and refresh themselves while here on various missions in service to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ For many of us on this team who have never been to Nicaragua before it is safe to say it is an experience that will stay with us forever We have often been moved to tears as we have witnessed the extreme poverty and need of so many At the same time these same people have humbled us with their gratitude for our gifts and visits and many times they have insisted on providing us with something in return whether a heart felt song hand made crafts freshly brewed sweet coffee a watermelon for our evening dessert or refreshing coconut water We have experienced a generosity that reminds us of the story of the widow with the two mites they give from what little they have The children shyly smile or shake our hands with clasped hands a sign of respect for their elders and many times have given us spontaneous hugs We have fallen in love with the people here Today was our last full day at our church build It is a great encouragement to Pastor Pablo and his congregation who scrimped and saved and made and sold things in order to purchase many of the building materials to have our team come alongside them to raise their sanctuary Today forms were cut for the front windows and doors which will have the traditional arch design Pastor Ian and Gwenna pose with Pastor Wilmer and his wife with some items we donated to their school today After we left the build we went to visit Pastor Wilmer in Managua Glenbrook s 2008 Mission team helped Pastor Wilmer build a Sunday school building and also helped run a sports ministry that year We were pleased to see that Pastor Wilmer s ministry is flourishing The Sunday school building is being well utilized and also provides much needed storage when extra Bibles evangelistic materials are donated Pastor Wilmer and his wife also run a before and after school program for more The first and second graders at Pastor Wilmer s school learnt about good food choices today than 300 children This is funded by Compassion International and serves to augment their regular schooling The children also receive a meal at the school Pastor Wilmer was very happy to see us and it is great to witness what he is accomplishing Dragos Pastor Ian and Pastor Cecilio work to pour cement into the rebar columns Tomorrow we will work for a few hours on the construction and then prepare and serve a hotdog lunch and of course the Glenbrook favourite cake Then we will bid Pastor Pablo s

  • Day Eleven – Wednesday (Miercoles) | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    day Yet as Pastor Cecilio noted Jesus must have known that this woman needed something more She needed living water As everyone on the team will testify it gets hot in Nicaragua We drink lots of water Water satisfies our physical thirst for a while but then soon more is needed Filling our water bottles has become routine Pastor Cecilio reminded us that we need more than just agua for our bodies but like the Samaritan woman we need living water for our spiritual life The source is Jesus He is the well that does not run dry He is the very source of life Nearing the top of the wall We spent the morning at the build site The walls of the church have reached the maximum height and they needed to be capped with some re bar and concrete Some of the team tied and twisted the re bar into shape Some of the team mixed concrete and poured it into the forms constructed by the Nicaraguan workers who are helping us with the build You can start to imagine what this church will look like when it is completed The Bakery Handing out Bibles and toiletries at the jail About mid afternoon the team left the build site and visited two small jails located in Niquinohomo Before we visited we stopped by a local bakery and purchased 100 picos or pineapple filled turnovers if you were ordering at Tim s The owner of the bakery generously gave us 30 picos and 10 loaves of bread for free knowing that we were purchasing the picos for the prisoners At the first prison we met Pastor Julio left who has a prison ministry and visits and shares the gospel of Christ on a regular basis to the prisoners This
