The "Nature Series" benches are completed in Rio Blanco, Matagalpa, Nicaragua

It’s been an amazing week in Nicaragua with the mission team from Grace Bible Church of Virginia Beach, Virginia on our “Serve and Learn Trip”. We landed in Managua, Matagalpa and joined forces with the “Connect Nicaragua” team. After spending quality time in the community and gathering supplies, we hit the road for the seven hour bus ride into Rio Blanco, Matagalpa and reached our final destination at the “Verbo Rio Blanco” Church. There were so many powerful moments shared through being together, giving to each other, and creating very special memories with the community.


We worked with the Verbo Church members and the local children hand painting the artwork on crafted benches. Each bench was designed after taking in the energy and hearing how each teen recognizes God in the Nature that surrounds them. The “Nature Series” benches will be placed in various locations through the community of Rio Blanco for the people to enjoy. Thank you to Chris and Kelly Jordan of Grace Bible Church, The “Connect Nicaragua” crew, and the wonderful people of the Verbo Church. This experience will never be forgotten and we will surely join forces again soon to spread LOVE to all in every way possible. *View all eight benches in “Gallery 2016” on this website.
