everything here in nicaragua seems to be going very well. we have gone to the basketball court each day with the purpose of hanging out with and building relationships with some of the kids who live on the streets. it has been great. of course, we also played soccer and were completely schooled. today we are hanging out with some of the high school kids and then going to help feed children at the local dump. each night we have been inviting youth over to the compound for a kind of retreat. it has been good. hopefully by now you have heard from your children. i have been getting them to the internet cafe about every other day. please continue to pray with us.
