Nicaragua Christian Academy finished its school year on line and many teachers and students have flown to their home countries. On May 23, Jeff, Branden and Rachelle joined Stacey and I in the states twenty-eight days earlier than planned.
As I read the daily updates and messages from friends still in country and follow news reports, I am discouraged by the violence and feel a deep sadness for my friends and Nica family at NCA and the community. I wonder about my students and if they are safe. Last night, God reminded of HIS goodness! My last day at school, a mother of a student asked me if we have been talking about being born again in class. I paused and then told her that we had talked about it and I wondered if the kids understood such a difficult concept. She then told me that her daughter was asking questions and then told her mommy that she wanted to be born again. They said a prayer and this sweet little girl asked Jesus to come into her heart.
I thank Jesus for reminding me that HE is in Nicaragua and that He loves these people, even the little ones! Please join me in praying that God would bring peace and understanding during this time of unrest. Pray that he may soften the hearts of the leaders and that life may improve for everyone. Please pray for the missionaries who are still there and for the school family.
