Finally in Nicaragua

We made it to Nicaragua on Wednesday, May 19th. Mark Miller came with us and was a great help.

We spent the first couple of days in Managua, starting the search for a car. Prices, of course, are high, but we're not quite sure what type of vehicle would be the most useful. I originally wanted a van to be able to haul folks, but it would be somewhat impractical where we will live.

We made a quick trip to Nueva Guinea, and then by the grace of God, we were able to meet the regional delegate of the Ministry of Education (Sunday, about an hour from Nueva Guinea). With the government returning to it's socialist roots, it has become complicated to open a new Christian school. But we think she understands that it would be a help to the community, and although she is in a bureaucratic position, she is an educator at heart. Please pray for the final approval.

Will post more next week as we return from Managua to Nueva Guinea.

Getting ready for kindergarten

In April, 2010, a small group from Texas painted the inside of the 1st school building and added murals to the pre-school walls. We are hoping to start the pre-school classes this July with Ana Cecilia Amador as the teacher.
