This past Spring Break our High School Senior, Zachary S. had the opportunity to go on a mission trip with some of his fellow Young Life friends to Nicaragua. Nicaragua is located in Central America and is one of the poorest countries in the world. Zach flew to Nicaragua and was able to stay in the home of a Young Life leader that leads in his town in Nicaragua. His host, Nesly, did not speak any English so Zach and his two other friends had a difficult time making connections with the native, but were able to do so and have a good time. The next day, the group traveled to the only Young Life Camp that is in Nicaragua to work on the camp for whatever they needed done. The camp’s ultimate goal was to expand the number of kids that the camp can hold because they were having problems with not being able to hold enough kids. Zach’s primary working project was working on a building that would be used to store gravel, rock, and sand so that the expanding construction could start this summer. He spent most of his time mixing and making cement, cutting cement blocks, and placing and mortaring the blocks into place. He really enjoyed his time there and had a lot of fun learning Spanish and joking around with the natives. Zach would like to encourage students to come to Southeastern’s Young Life Club Thursday morning at 6:45 at Gilbert’s youth center in South Charleston. Kids are served a free breakfast and play some fun and crazy games before heading off to school.
