Compassion: Bloggers Trip {Nicaragua}

Nicaragua-Facebook-Cover-3.jpgGod is doing something HUGE in Nicaragua! The college/young adult group from our church have been going to Nicaragua for past 2 years, and they just left for the jungle this morning! Sorry about the grainy IG pic below. The original is on my phone, and my phone is not working. 😦

The Compassion bloggers will be blogging daily about what they are experiencing during their time in Nicaragua. They will hear stories of the people there, as well as learning about how the children in poverty live there, and also all about the ministry of Compassion there. (Some maps below in case you need reminding of where Nicaragua is. You’re welcome. 😉 hehe)

Twitter Party
If you are on Twitter, there is a Twitter party on Thursday 9pm EST. The trip bloggers will be there too, so make sure you don’t miss it. You can ask them how they are doing and get your questions answered directly by them. Follow #CompassionBloggers to see what they are up to.

Please be in prayer for both our church’s Nicaragua team who will be installing water filtration systems this week, as well as the Compassion bloggers. Pray for safety and health. Pray that they will open to how God wants to use them in the interactions with all the people there, that they will see the light and love of Jesus.

  1. I loved this post and it was a blessing to meet you tonight at the Twitter party! 🙂 I also loved how you presented the bloggers and prayer requests. We’ll be praying for your church’s team as well. 🙂 Just to be curious, what kind of water filtration systems are they installing? God bless!

    • Yes, good “meeting” you too. 🙂 Thank you for praying for our church team as well. I’m not sure of the specific water filters, but they were installing them in the jungle. And they also went to visit the orphanage too. I can find out more if you would like to know. 🙂

  3. To make matters worse, my computer’s been on the blink. Turns out, I need a new battery, which has resulted in two trips to Knoxville this week. A computer is sort of necessary when one is to travel with Compassion to BLOG. Speaking of Compassion, I’m so honored to be going on this trip. We had a twitter party last night at 10pm, which means I could very well have dreamed up the whole thing, because I’m anything but a night owl and 11p feels like the middle of the night to me. But for some reason, it helped to calm some of my fears. Christy and I both were lamenting how late it was and how we grannies can’t be staying up til 11 pm for some such activities. So then, Shaun called her Meemaw and then she called him Sonny, and that was it for me. For some reason, traveling with Meemaw and Sonny doesn’t seem quite as daunting. In fact, it sounds like a blast. I can do this. Right?
