Welcome to our journey. We're so glad to have you!

As we prepare for, and soon embark on our journey, this blog will not only be a window into our travels and experiences, but also a way for us to share with our supporters in the good works along the way. So many people have helped make this trip possible and for that we are grateful! We hope you'll stay tuned to see what and who your support impacts. We also ask that you will continue to pray for us and the people we will serve while we're in Nicaragua.

Mock Clinic Complete...It's Go Time!

This past Sunday marked our mock clinic and last team meeting, which in turn means the stomach butterflies have officially begun! When we signed up for this trip, it seemed like forever before we'd leave, and now it's only 3 days away! With meetings starting months ago and a practice clinic under our belts, I think we're the most prepared that we can be.

Now the fun begins:
-Serving the beautiful people of Leon, Nicaragua
-Bringing free health care to those who truly need it
-Growing as a team, making new friends, and creating bonds that will last a lifetime
-Meeting our Nicaraguan team members who have been preparing for our arrival
-Experiencing a totally different culture
-Being stretched daily
-Releasing control of our usual schedules to go exactly where the Lord leads, when He leads.
-Eating pinto gallo til we can turn into beans and rice ourselves
-Leaving our cell phones, laptops, facebooks, and TVs behind (or at least turned off)

Is it Saturday yet??!!
