Nicaragua Mission Trip

Monday, April 01, 2013

I had an amazing trip to Nicaragua March 21-28th. I had my birthday there any my husband and my friends hired a mariachi band to serenade our group at the mission house. I did a good bit of "dancing" which I counted as cardio!
I got to meet many people and share God's love with them. I taught Bible school to kids and they were so attentive and appreciative.

I met a few sweet babies and their Mamas.

And made some great friends:

Unfortunately, I picked up a "bug" while I was there and the only running I've been doing since I returned is running to the bathroom.
Hopefully, I can soon get this under control. Ironically the question for today on my Alabama team was about being an optimist or pessimist. I'm decided on an optimist because even with the sickness there are two good things.
1. I'm running to the bathroom (that counts as running, right?)
2. I'm not eating very much because it goes right through me. What a way to conquer portion control!

This is not an April Fool's Joke. emoticon
If anyone wants a few more pictures, I have some I can share!
