I was able to treat 10-15 people daily, Monday through Friday. I visited an active volcano. I swam in a lake created by a volcano. I toured three separate orphanages. The week I was there was a life changing experience. I served. I gave. What I was given back was more than I gave.
It’s easy to be participating in your life, living your life. Not realizing the little bubbles we live in that are our lives. I love my life and my bubble. Seeing others outside of that bubble was an eye-opening experience. It was powerful to help meet the most basic human needs of the Nicaraguans. I witnessed their gratefulness and contentment in what they had and where they were.
In these times of unrest and division, I encourage you to step out of your bubble and look around. We have so much to thankful for, to be grateful for. I hope you have a wonderful August.
