A group of 7 young South Carolinians will be traveling to Ticuantepe, Nicaragua October 31st - November 6th to experience God’s love through the Pineapples of Peace ministry , hosted by SC Natives Robbie & Murray Lathrop.

This ministry has been growing steadily for the past 10 years ever since the Lathrops followed God's calling and moved to Nicaragua to be full time missionaries. They now host teams throughout the year on their stunning pineapple farm. Through this farm they are able to support local Nicaraguans and gain priceless relationships with people from both Nicaragua and the US.

Our group will be participating in a construction project on the farm, home visits in the community, as well as visiting the school and hospital in the capital of Managua, all while building relationships and sharing the love of Christ! Our biggest goal with this trip is to help support the Pineapples of Peace ministry, serve the people of Nicaragua and grow together in fellowship. We know that God has called us to share His heart with the world and believe a quick trip of friends can turn in to a beautiful representation of Christ at work. 

Members of our team:
Jessica Davis (York, SC)
Noel Griffin (Columbia, SC)
Gracie and Reed Lathrop (York, SC)
Morgan Barrentine (York, SC)
Zach Satterfield (Charleston, SC) 
Sarah Bailey (Columbia,SC)
