Since I returned from Bluefields, Nicaragua I have been overwhelmed with thoughts of many different things. I thought that once I had “settled in” to being back home my desire to return and serve in Bluefields would subside as I readjusted to my Canadian lifestyle; but, since my reentry into “normal” life, I have found myself praying more about Nicaragua and about my future. I believe that God is calling me to serve in Bluefields for a longer period of time. This is not a call that I am taking lightly. I am praying about this continually, and I have spoken with some people who I believe will help me to make the best choice regarding these inklings.
While we were working at the school, I fell in love with the children. They were so fascinated with us and they always wanted to be able to watch us and be near us. One little boy, Michael, decided that he wanted to help us out everyday (more for his benefit than for ours, as we gave him food). The construction workers that we helped had an unexplainable joy when they worked, and they loved to laugh both at and with us (we were fairly amusing to watch and listen to). In Tasbapauni I had so much fun playing with the children and teaching them about God’s word and how it was alive in my life.
