Making a Difference in Nicaragua

This past May I had the wonderful opportunity to lead a team of Ignite students to Nicaragua for a mission trip. This was an experience I will never forget! I fell in love with the people of Nicaragua, learned about leadership in very practical ways, and grew closer to God. We visited churches, preached and gave testimonies, helped with children's programs, partnered with Compassion International, handed out Bibles partnering with YWAM, and did some construction projects as well. The three weeks we were there were a whirlwind of service and love, centered around God. I could see God's love for the people we served, but also I saw God's love through the people we served with. The team in Nicaragua was passionate about ministry, selfless, and showed God's love with everything they did. God has created a very special place in my heart for the people of Nicaragua. 

God is doing a great work in Nicaragua, and it has been a privilege to be a part of it. Ignite has been sending teams to Nicaragua for years, and we are continuing to build our partnership with them. We are excited to help them advance the Kingdom of God into their nation. This partnership will continue to grow and develop as the years go on. I cannot wait to see where God takes us and how He uses Ignite and the people of Nicaragua for His glory!
