In 2010, with one week’s notice, I embarked on a mission trip to Nicaragua with Forward Edge International. I ain’t been right since.

On August 20, 2010 I wrote myself a letter that would later be mailed back to me in the United States a couple months later.
Things to remember from your first mission trip in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua:
Live every moment fully surrendered to God.
You don’t know what God’s plan and will is for your life, but trust that His plan is perfect.
Don’t gripe or complain about anything.
Humbly accept everything as a gift from your Heavenly Father.
Don’t be too proud or arrogant to do the littlest things for people.
Show you love God by loving His people.
Remember those in the prison who have nothing – you are no different from them.
Remember those in Botaña who are struggling to live day by day – you are no different from them.
Remember those in the hospital facing difficult circumstances beyond their control – you are no different from them.
We are all one in the Lord.
Take care of your beloved brothers & sisters out of a pure heart of love.
Not expecting anything in return, but knowing God is your reward.
