Experience the joy of helping and serving men, women and children who have so many needs. The trips will provide opportunities to do construction, provide educational and fun activities for children, visit and interact with missions and non-profit organizations that are meeting critical needs of the Nicaraguan people in the areas of medical care, education, and care for the most vulnerable. You will be exposed to a different culture and to some of Nicaraguas points of interest. You will get to know your mission teammates as you work, play, and pray together.
