On Monday, April 23rd ABWE told to evacuate Nicaragua because of civil unrest. It all started on Wednesday April 18th when the government made some decisions that greatly angered the people which led to demonstrations, riots, looting, and even death. There are supposed "negotiation talks" happening Monday morning. We are praying that it can be resolved and we can return home. ABWE is assessing the situation Tuesday morning and will hopefully give us a better idea of when we can return.

We left Nicaragua and are in Costa Rica hoping we can return home. It's hard to live in limbo, not knowing when you can return. There are several reasons we feel the urgency to return. The kids still have school and it is very challenging for them to complete assignments when not in class. Mark has the center and it is very difficult to make decisions out of the country. We work very closely with Rayitos. Mark and I were supposed to get away for a week in May. We have two teams coming the month of June and into July. We purchased plane tickets to go to the US after the team leaves in July. They originate from Managua.

There are a lot of unknowns. We trust that God is in control This did not catch Him unaware. Please pray that we would have His perspective about being gone, that we would trust in His timing to return. Please pray for all the details that need to be taken care of because we are living in limbo. There are unexpected costs of living out of the country for an undetermined amount of time. The kids have school and need to complete assignments. Ministry can continue for a short time but we need to get back. Please pray for the government and the people of Nicaragua that they would be able to resolve the issues quickly and peacefully. Please, please pray with us.
