A few years ago I spent four weeks in beautiful Leon, Nicaugua. It was one of the best experiences of my life. It is a rare experience to be able to spend an extended period of time in another country, learning about their culture and who they are. I consider myself so blessed to have been able to been able to study these people and their way of life. There was so much beauty there, but there was also a ton of hardship, heartbreak, loss, and discouragement. These loving and sweet people have so much of a need. I thank God for people like Sandra and Preston Barnum, who I lived with. They are there everyday, loving and helping, just as Jesus did. I will never be able to thank them for letting me stay with them and letting me have this life changing experience! Here are some of the things, places, and people who helped change me and draw me closer to Christ on this amazing trip:
Thank you all.
