6:45 am Yes we are up early here in Nicaragua. The local rooster begins our day right about sunrise which is around 6:00 am here. Today we are all excited because we get to begin the reason we came. Today we start work on the new clinic. As I understand it the clinic is located on the site where the government placed the displaced persons from the natural disaster of hurricane Mitch. A community has now formed there and a new clinic is much needed because the population there is very poor. From what I understand there is now a slab there so we will get to be the first group to begin to construct what will end up being a medical clinic. It is exciting thinking about being able to do such work. By the way I want to thank each of you for your tremendous support of the medications we collected for this clinic and the two others that are already operating in different parts of Managua. Your generosity will help to make a difference in the lives of God’s children here. If you read the blog from last night you know that we enjoyed quite a day yesterday. Being a Sunday afternoon families were everywhere in the city and especially at the parks and many of the sites we visited. Food vendors, small street businesses, live music, all were present all over the city. This culture seems to be so alive. We have enjoyed being a part of that and walking and moving in the midst of so many people. Pray for us today. I have already prayed for you this morning in my own devotional time. We feel your prayers as we are here. Thank you for doing that for us. Remember the team is : Gene and Tina Lawhon, Carolyn Henry, Jon Kendall, Alan Easterling, Susan Streeter, Laurie Shannon, Bridget Hancock, and yours truly! We have been so blessed by so much already! Who knows what God has for us on this most glorious day!!!
I will see you on the road,
I John 3:1
