Sleeping arrangements........


Well to those of you who actually know about the blog (like 3 people) here is an update on our Nicaragua trip. We had our first meeting last week and got alot of information...the best of which is where we are staying.........











This is a long range veiw of the living quarters....pretty isnt it! Looks like paradise. Alot of green....real outdoorsy....here is the kicker.....its the rainy season in Nicaragua......i dont know what they mean by "rainy season" but here is my idea......






so now look at a closeup of the hut.....








Yeah so if you have the same reaction as all of us had you now are wondering....where are the walls???? So there is a good chance that we can be very very wet when sleeping....oh and I bet creepy crawlies try to find dry places to sleep as well when it is raining right??? Oh but it gets better.....this is the womens hut....yes guys (well adam, donald and shay...bc I think you guys might be the only males that know or may read this....well at least your wives may try and tell you about it) there is a seperate mens hut....so without further adoo (sp?)




NOTICE ANY DIFFERENCE!!! Maybe the landscaping for one....they have some....and not to mention the ROOM! Once again, they have some. By this picture it looks like the guys have to sleep in a single file line.....but I guess we do have a little wall to keep the rain out of one side....cause as I said earlier, it is the rainy season and I just dont think the rain is gonna come straight down!! Maybe that is construction going on in the front there....any chance for a game room?? :>)



But for real, we are excited by this opportunity and I will stay wherever they need us to, I actually think this is better. I just feel like getting away from this world of stuff and living in that world will really enable me to connect not only with the locals, but also with God. Getting stripped down to nothing makes you appreciate how much you have, but also can show you how much you really depend on God. It is going to be a great opportunity for us to grow as individuals and as a couple....

there is another thing...here is the first picture, which is actuall the view from the guys hut to the womens......


So at least they wont be able to hear us complain..............:>) Love you guys and hope to see or talk to you all soon!!!!

It looks like the men's hut is about to get lost in a land slide! I would tether yourself to a nearby palm tree.
