We spent an incredible nine days with our friend, Dave, from Canada who brought down a group of 10 more friends (including his son and daughter) to serve in Nicaragua with us. God connected us with Dave when we very first moved to Nicaragua and his family has been an incredible blessing to us ever since.
We spent the majority of the week working on several building projects at Ruby Ranch. It was a crazy hot week and everyone worked so hard to paint and treat the wood bathrooms with poly to protect against termites and weather. They dug trenches and mixed and poured concrete for a new drainage system. And, with the help of Henry and one of the ranch horses, they moved a mountain of block and prepped a load of lumber that will be used to build a new house for a family who will be living at Ruby Ranch.
As soon as the local children from Las Parcelas finished school in the morning, they came to Ruby Ranch to play baseball and other fun games with us each day. Our last day was a fun day for all of the kids and we served them lunch and played games and had lots of crazy water slide fun. It was all so good!!
We ended the week with a powerful time of prayer and a fun day at the beach for surfing lessons and a bonfire with s'mores.
God has put a passion in our hearts for adventure and for serving and it was an incredible week of doing just that with an amazing group of people that we absolutely love.
Thank you Adventure with a Heart team for serving alongside us and for loving the people of Nicaragua so well. Here's to many more adventures together!!
