In the local paper…

This time of year we have a program where we build houses with groups of high schoolers from Miami.  Palmer Trinity School was working this week on their house and a local reporter from the National Newspaper stopped by.  They interviewed some of the students and came again the next day when we went to Club Esperanza.  Some of the students on the team are Nicaraguan and so the connection was even deeper.

Well, this morning their faces were on the front cover of the Nuevo Diario….

…and the story ran to a full page color spread in the back!!!

This is a first for us down here, and I am sure for these young people as well…it was really cool to see a great project reported on in the local paper!  Of course we went around town buying copies at every stand so the kids could have a keep sake to take home with them.  Here is the link if you would like to read it…it is in Spanish, but maybe Google translate can turn it into English, I haven’t tried that yet.

Article in the Nuevo Diario – “Jovenes construyen casas”

It’s been a really fun couple of weeks of hard labor…Praise The Lord!
