Well, we made it in to Nicaragua a day late and it was crazy traveling. I had the most awesome surprise!!!!! When I got to my gate at the airport (I was talking to Melodi on the phone) I saw KAREN.
YES, Karen from Nicaragua. Loren and Karen had been planing the surprise for months. Karen was in the US visiting her parents and they worked it out where she would fly back with me. Then we had trouble with our flight and ended up staying in a hotel on Christmas Eve and flying out Christmas morning. I think it was God's favor on me though...I didn't really know Karen all that well and we got a chance to just hang out and talk. We made a not so fun situation really fun.
Then when we got into Nicaragua Loren had made a big Christmas meal for us...Jader and Julie were there. We had presents, a tree, lights,....it was great!
Today our team got here and one member wasn't able to get on the plane due to weather so we are heading out a day late to wait for him. This was okay in my book though because it gave Loren a chance to teach me some of the things I need to prepare for each new team that will come in.
I am tired so I will write more later....
God is so good!
