Nicaragua Trip

It's that time! It will be almost a year to date that we would like to visit Nicaragua since we moved back in July.

Nicaragua will always be special to us. They say "home is where your heart is" ...or "where your family is".....well that was our home for 3 years! It was where we brought our daughter into the world and where she was raised for the first 2.5 years of her life. The ministry at Children of Destiny and all whom are a part of it will always be important to us.

We are trying to raise money for all three of us to return to serve alongside the Emmanuel Baptist Church team, work on ministry agenda (photos, videos, trainings) and reconnect with the home. When we left Nicaragua we decided that we would always visit. It wasn't an "if" but a "when". We want to be invested in CODN for the rest of our lives as well as bringing Mila back as much as possible so that she can understand a little bit more about where she was born and where she spent the first few years of her life. She may like it so much that she decides to be a Nicaraguan citizen at 18!

We are hopeful that we will raise enough for all of us to go! If you would like to partner with us to make that happen we would be so grateful. 

We do not have tickets yet but are looking at a 2 week trip at the end of June 2018.


Blake, Ashley and Mila
