Review for Extreme Missionary Adventures, Rayville, LA, USA
I have had the honor of serving with XMA on 4 trips to Nicaragua, with a 5th scheduled in January. My first trip was a medical missions with a team from our church. I remember wondering why I was lead to this team because I am a teacher. Our first trip was challenging for me as we hiked through mountains and a beautiful rainforest to reach the village of Santa Ana. I remember how beautiful the stars were at night. It was as if you were so close to the heavens up on that mountain. The place was so remote they did not have a school or a teacher. I was challenged to teach the pastor's son how to read. Imagine my dilemma, as I spoke no Spanish. With God as my strength, I worked with the pastor's children as well as other children in the village - and God confirmed my place on the team. The people of the villages are very poor but grateful and always bless and enrich our lives. If you feel led to go on a mission - I urge you to do so. The XMA team leaders in Nicaragua are my close personal friends and will guide you through the entire adventure. You will love the people of this country.
