Day 3: Indianapolis Team
This morning we drove out to a village that had no water or electricity and conducted a clinic in the village. The village is made up of around 35 families and has been around for 30 years. Each week a large tanker truck brings in water and the people fill up whatever containers they have until the water is empty.
As the nursing students and and Vision Nicaragua’s doctor, Michael were conducting the clinic the rest of us played with their children, handed out rice and beans and Zachary, gave hair cuts to 7 of the women.
It was truly an eye opening yet joyful experience, these people were very happy, vibrant people.
Once we returned we spent the afternoon working on things around the project. We finished bagging rice and beans, which we will distribute to random people on the side of the road as we are driving today.
We had an early dinner, then headed to Leon where we joined some college people and had a Vida Joven club!! (Aka Young Life). The leaders were made up of local university student and they invited their fellow students to join!
Collectively we had a blast!!!!!!!!! We played games, danced and watched hilarious skits, one of which Leah and Carly put on- called light and fluffy. Then one of the Nicaraguan YL Leaders share a message to close our time.
It was a beautiful experience to work alongside them for this club, and I think the young life leaders on this trip are excited to play the games we played there, at our own clubs at home.
So many firsts happened for us today & we are all feeling blessed! We are excited for what the rest of the week has in store.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
