We had prayer with Laura in the 11am service this morning. This is her first time out of the Country and I am sure that God is going to bless the people through Laura as well as Laura being blessed. Please let Laura know that you are going to be praying for her.
Laura is going on mission to Vera Cruz, Nicaragua over spring break with fellow students at Virginia Tech.
The Nicaraguan Orphan Fund is a Christian organization sponsored by ORPHANetwork. This year NOF will is taking about 50 students from VT, and about 150 students from other schools in Virginia (William & Mary, JMU, and UVA… yep! Wahoos and Hokies working together! Haha! )
The trip is simple. Their main focus is showing Christ’s love to orphans and building relationships with them by getting to know them personally. Which basically means – THEY GET TO HANG OUT WITH KIDS ALL WEEK! Their goal is to show these children’s Christ’s love through their own. They will be teaching them about the ministry of Jesus Christ and God’s grace. In addition to spending time with the children they will also be working on various work projects.
Laura and the group will leave March 6, 2009 and return March 13, 2009. There will be close to 200 college kids from 4 different colleges. Each college will be working in different parts of Nicaragua.
One comment on “God @ work in Nicaragua”
This young lady is such an inspiration to youth and adults alike. God Bless You Laura, and my family will be praying for you! Go spread the Gospel around.
