Back in the States

I almost titled this blog as home again, but was some how reminded we are not at home! We got back from Nicaragua on Sun. Since then, we have been trying to restore ourselves physically and emotionally. The trip was truly one of a lifetime. We learned so much about so much: about sitting in the comfort and peace of a God who is truly God of the universe, about being humbled as the ones we went to serve served us, about the menial things that we focus on verses focusing on who He is. It has been a long time since I've just sat in God's comfort and let Him surround me with His arms. It has been great for me this week to do just that! Here are some pictures from the trip:These are some of the cooks at the church, and their children!

This is Jonathan with Kevin; I think that everyone on the trip wanted to take Kevin back to the states!

These are two of the girls that hung out with us each day! The young girl on the left was Mabeling. She really enjoyed playing with Kelli Swartzentruber (I have no idea if I spelled that right)!

These are three active little boys. They kept trying to tickle me, which was fun?!?! They also enjoyed playing keep away from the chele (translated: white girl)!
