We made another delivery of food packs this past week. This time to the community of Los Brasiles and our staff at Club Cristiano Los Brasiles. It was a special time, especially because we were able to have some friends in town for the weekend to help deliver the packs.
We packed up our Land Cruiser Ambulances and made our way to Club Los Brasiles on Sunday afternoon. Not only did we share the packs with teachers and staff there, but also with a local Pastor and a few families that Hilary has developed relationships with over the years. It was emotional to be together and we made sure to spend some time praying for Nicaragua.
Driving around with Hilary and Kristina to deliver the packs was a fun experience. Lots of people happy to see them and lots of hugs and smiles on the dirt roads of Los Brasiles.

On a fun football side note to this trip, Kristina brought a bunch of Ohio State University t-shirts. If you know me you know this is the last place you would ever see Ohio State gear, but this is a very special circumstance! Kristina’s son Harry is a highly regarded football recruit and he loves Nicaragua. He planned to announce his commitment to play football for Ohio State this summer but couldn’t because of the trip’s cancelation. Harry wanted to make sure all his little buddies got their shirts so Kristina brought them down this weekend. He had a football game so he wasn’t able to make this trip either. It was a fun delivery and all the kids had fun rockin’ their new swag! And for any of you Buckeye fans out there, you are probably the only ones who like these pictures LOL! Congrats to Harry and Kristina, he is a great young man and a great athlete…but the best part is he loves Jesus and loves the things God is doing here in Nicaragua!
