We're packed and ready to begin an adventure in the sunny south at the stroke of midnight. Our Sunday school children have been collecting money for many months to build a house for a poor lady in Nicaragua. Now a work team of six adults (four men and two women) is going down to construct the house. I can't hammer a nail straight to save my life but I'm sure they will find something for us women to do. I know we will be doing some cooking but we'll find out what else they have for us to do after we're there.
We are meeting at 1 a.m. and will drive to Baltimore where our flight departs at 6:15. If everything is on schedule we will get to Managua, Nicaragua, at 1 p.m. Monday afternoon. Then we have a two hour drive to Leon where we will be staying.
We will only be there one week and return next Monday, 28th. The 90-ish days they have right now will be quite a switch from what we are used to around here. Gerald will be here to look after the place while we're gone. I don't expect to have internet access down there so there will probably not be any more posts until March.
