Hurricane Ida is making landfall this morning in Nicaragua. Immediately my mind thinks of the thousands of people in small villages and towns that we visited and ministered with just a few months ago. While it’s just a Category 1 storm, I’m praying it passes through with little or no consequence. Last year at this time I had no connection to Nicaragua, but now I see faces of friends at the mention of the country’s name. That’s the power of mission trips and traveling abroad… it expands our worldview and makes us pay attention to the world around us . I’m looking forward to expanding my worldview a little more in Mexico City next June!!
