To kick off our short-term mission trips to Nicaragua, we held a giveaway asking our supporters to share special mission trip memories on our blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Our Nicaragua Country Director, Jon Thompson, randomly selected the winner from a collection of names (out of a Nicaraguan bowl, of course).
The winner, Heather Blair, has traveled on Honduras mission trips with HOI several times. She shared,
“Trips with HOI have been life changing experiences! I have been for a number of years and there hasn’t been one trip that I haven’t enjoyed. My favorite memory? It is probably something that some would think is small, but it is something that I have never forgotten. My church had adopted the same village for several years. The second year we came back to the same village we arrived on the back of the truck to most of the village gathered at the school. As we got off the truck we heard voices screaming our names! Most of us had returned again and they knew our names…after one week together more than a year before. It was awesome to feel so welcomed, loved and remembered. I have so many great memories from the different trips!”
We look forward to having Heather serve with HOI in Nicaragua as well. If you would like to participate in a Nicaragua mission trip, consider joining a team of individuals that will serve from December 7-14, 2013. For more information please click here or contact Laurie Willing to sign up!
