Nicaragua, Central America 

When? Friday August 5 – Sunday August 14, 2016
Where? Nicaragua, Central America – in Managua and Matagalpa
Who can go? Anyone interested in giving witness to God’s love through mission service!
What will we do? The focus of the mission trip will be to strengthen our partnership with Accion Medica Cristiana (AMC) and contribute to the construction of a suspension foot bridge on a model farm known as the New Jerusalem Land Bank.
Who will we spend time with? Farming families, AMC Staff, construction workers, other brothers and sisters.
What will we achieve?  We will help children get to school and farmers get their harvests to market with a bridge that provides safe crossing over a river. We will learn about a different place than our own, and see what God is doing there and how we can be a part of it. We will see the Gospel of Jesus Christ through new eyes and become more committed to God!

Logistics: our partner organization AMC will arrange for all in-country logistics including transportation, meals, lodging, and translation.
Cost: the estimated cost is $130 per person per day. For the total 9 nights in Nicaragua, the cost per person would be approximately $1,170 [for room/board, local transportation, activities fees, translation and local supporting staff].  This cost may vary according to the specifics of our program. Airfare is a separate cost and we are anticipating an average cost of $600 round trip.
What else should I know? Our team is committed to raising $3,600. toward the cost of the suspension bridge in the New Jerusalem Land Bank. Please contact us by April 1st.
