Dear Family and Friends,
After four years of thinking, praying, and talking everyone’s ears off about Nicaragua, the time has finally come! I have decided to move to Chinandega, Nicaragua and work for Amigos for Christ.
In their mission to help eradicate poverty, Amigos helps bring clean water, education, health care, and economic development to rural Nicaraguan communities. Working for Amigos for two years means I will have the opportunity to help in each of these areas. I’ll get to use my “gift of gab” to build relationships with Americans on week-long mission trips as well as the Nicaraguans in the communities where we work. I’ll have a chance to use my passion for learning and reading to help the education team. Most importantly, though, I’ll be learning more about what it means to make true joy and love more visible in the world. I know I could do all of this without leaving Georgia, but my experiences with Amigos for Christ have connected me with Nicaragua in such a way that I feel as though a piece of my heart is already there, calling to me in Spanish to come back.
I am so excited that I have been given this opportunity, and I am so grateful for the love and encouragement I have received from my family and friends while making this decision. Through my last three summers serving with Amigos, I have learned that the only way for me to be successful in Nicaragua is with a constant stream of thoughts, prayers, and support from my loved ones.
In order to live for two years in Nica, I need to raise money for my salary, rent, transportation, insurance, and Spanish training. If you feel able to help me in this way, please see the breakdown of funds and link below. To be completely successful, though, I will also need your continued emotional support. So, I am asking all of you to keep praying for me. Keep sending me good vibes. Keep asking me how I am doing. Keep skyping me, texting me, and calling me. Keep sharing your love with my family and me.
If you would like to hear more about what I will be doing specifically or what Amigos for Christ does as an organization, please contact me at (706) 575-5279 or Katie.email@example.com.
Thank you all for joining me on this journey! I am so excited to see what amazing things are in store for the next two years! Peace and love to you all!
