Commonway in Nicaragua

Days 6, 7, & 8

Day 6 – Goodbyes

After another morning in Caulatú, we stopped by the FH office in the afternoon to say our goodbyes. Regardless of how many of us make to Nicaragua in the next seven years, this FH team is already a part of our family and our church. God has woven our hearts and our future together. With some tears, we shared our deep love for them and an appreciation for their hospitality. And before hugs and group pictures, Matt prayed for God to continue to bless them and that He would protect them as they continue the work to bring about God’s plans and purposes here.

Day 7&8 – Tourists & Home

After a day of being tourists, we’re on our way home. There are plenty of more stories to tell, moments of great joy and heartache. As we continue this journey with FH, there are a few things for you to consider.

1 – Pray — Of the many things to pray, I think it can be summed up best by saying this. Pray that God’s kingdom would come to Caulatú and that His will would be done. Those are simple but powerful prayers. We trust that as you pray, God will be at work.

2 – Sponsor a Child — If you do not already sponsor a child, you”ll have that opportunity to do that on March 4th at church. With a commitment of around $40 a month, you can support FH specifically in Caulatú. Our sponsorship money benefits each child by helping to fund the staff and their work.

3 – Support Upcoming Teams — Our next trip is scheduled for June, and we’ll go again at least twice in 2019. Visiting Nicaragua may not be for you, but supporting those who go is just as important.

4 – Go — Here’s the deal. There’s only one requirement to be a part of an upcoming team, and here it is:

If you want to go, you should.

That’s it. This isn’t a trip just for those who can pay their own way. Part of the fun in going is watching as God provides the money to do so. And don’t let age stop you either. On this trip, the age range was 10 to 71. Yes, there are some long travel days and less-than-warm showers occasionally, but the benefits far outweigh any of the challenges. Spots are still open for the next trip going from June 16th to the 23rd. If you’re interested, email me at
