Nicaragua countdown!

Corynn will be leaving next week on her first international mission trip. I can’t believe the date is nearly here!  We are all really excited for her and for the team and we are anxious to hear all that God will do through them, in them and to their hearts! 

Laura and EMily

I remember the first time Laura went and she returned home saying  “the trip completely wrecked my life…”  and it has…today Laura works for Samaritan’s Purse-one of the biggest international relief agencies in the world.  I believe that God had it all planned out and Laura’s obedience brought her to a new place with God.  I also believe this will happen for Corynn.  I believe she will leave with a child’s heart and come home with the heart of God-wrecked, torn, filled and flamed with passion for  GOD and the kids she will meet on this trip.  Corynn has a heart for children and as I have watched her grow in God this past year, it has been amazing to watch her bloom.  She is a kid magnet.  She can pull a smile out of a bully and she can coax the alphabet out of a bug on the wall.  She amazes me!  She has been interning with Lucy Nottingham and Amy Hash this year at Laurel Elementary school.  Both have commented on her apparent teacher skills and gifts.  When she comes home from being in their classes she is full of funny stories and antics and I love hearing all about them!  She is zany, wild and full of life!  I know the kids of NICA will tug her heart strings hard and she will theirs.

Please be in prayer for the team as they prepare to leave and while they are there.  Here is a link to the blog about the trip.  You can go here to read their stories each day and keep up with what they are doing.

Thank you ALL for helping to get Corynn here…she is such a blessing to all of us and we will miss her!
