May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Update #1 from Nicaragua
Hey everyone,
  I want to thank ya'll for your prayers. They mean a lot to me.
My flights all went great, everything was on scedule and I had no missed flights :)

 On my arrival I was situated in my room at the orphange. There are three little ones in my room, Ruby, Leito and Frankie. I only had to get up once during the night since I have been here and that was during a storm.

So far I have mostly kept busy taking care of all the babies, dressing, feeding, washing, and playing.
 I have also been helping organize the kitchen and making sure it stays that way.

  It is so much fun to watch the babies chase each other around my chair till one becomes so frantic that they give up and charge into my arms laughing hystercally clinging to me like there life depended on it.
 It has been great here so far and I'm looking forward to what God is going to do with the rest of my time here.
Below are a few photos:
