I've been out of the blogosphere for quite some time now. We've had three very full weeks of ministry to local schools. I'm behind on emails, blogging, and the house is just now getting back into order! :) Sometimes in our minsitry there are weeks of mucy activity and then we have slower weeks of normal routine.
Here's what we did the past three weeks...The first of the three weeks we had a mini camp which lasted three days and two nights with Nejapa Christian Academy at a retreat center called Skylark.
The following week we had an American team come to help out and we hosted three all day youth retreats for a school called Boanerjes. We had a little over 200 youth during those three days. It was so neat to see God moving in their lives.
Lastly, this past week we had a retreat on Wednesday where over 150 youth attended and we had 25 youth volunteers working as "retreat staff." It's been wonderful to participate in these activities and get to know the youth. Also it's a great blessing to serve alongside others with like hearts as we plan and carry out these activities.
The youth learned what the Bible says about salvation through Christ, relationships between parents and children, godly frienships and sex. Many made important life decisions in response to what they learned. God is at work in the lives of Nicaraguan youth and I'm so thankful to be a part of it!
