Women's golf Nicaragua Mission Day One
The Lady Bisons are spending seven days on a mission trip to Managua, Nicaragua as the team of 13 serves the people there.
We started our journey to Nicaragua full sprint... literally. After running through the Dallas airport, we were able to make our flight with a few minutes to spare (Coach Huddy, if you're reading this, be proud of us). We arrived to Nicaragua on Saturday evening and enjoyed our first full day in Managua on Sunday. In the morning, we attended a church service and then played and served the kids of the church community. We were filled with joy interacting with the kids and hearing their contagious laughs. Later that night, we attended another church service where we were amazed by the authenticity of their worship. While we were in the worship service the power went out, however that didn't stop the love and energy of the church. Although we could not understand the service, we could literally feel God's presence. We know we will face great challenges this week, and those have already begun, but despite these trials, we can already see God's hand working through us in this trip and are pumped to see what all will happen through the week.
Today we are thrilled to be jumping into the community here by doing crafts with the kids as well as playing games! Please continue to pray for us in Nicaragua and we are so thankful and happy to share this journey with you!
