Registration for this project is now CLOSED. Please contact Pastor Delwin Finch at dfinch@forestlakechurch.org for information regarding the next Nicaragua Mission Trip.

On August 17, 2014 a group of people will be traveling to Managua, Nicaragua for a very special project. You could be part of that group.

This project is a rather unique in it’s focus. Rather than building a building or some other worthwhile endeavor, we will instead be taking student pictures and building a school yearbook for an elementary school with over 310 students. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere (second only to Haiti). The school, LifeLink International, is located in a very poor section of Managua. All of the students live locally and their education is funded by outside sources. While it may not seem like a big deal to people in North America, having a personal photo will be a treasure for them and their families. We will also be taking portraits of their families while we are there and may be able to do some other photography projects as well.

So the primary skill set for this project calls for people with a more technical aptitude, particularly those familiar with digital photography and desktop publishing. Also needed will be those who are fluent in Spanish or perhaps good at organization or crowd-control. This project can also be expanded to included a medical/dental component or a Vacation Bible School or perhaps a gymnastics or musical instruction project as well.

Project Dates: August 17-24, 2014
