We had a fun time last week visiting Club Cristiana La Esperanza with some high school students from Westminster Christian School in Miami, FL. They were in Nicaragua to build a mercy home for a family in need with Open Hearts. You can check out the blog they updated during their trip here. But in the middle of it all, we took some time to visit the Early Childhood Education Center at Club Esperanza. And guess what….
…They brought backpacks!!!
Every one of our preschool and kindergarten students got a brand new backpack filled with all sorts of fun toys and school supplies and candy…and so of course the team made sure to include some dental hygiene supplies as well!
It was a fun morning and a great opportunity to bring a small blessing to a child in need. The kids all loved getting their new backpacks! We praise the Lord for these very special gifts at the start of this school year.
We also made sure to hang around for recess time. Really, how on earth could anyone visit a school with so many cute little kids and not spend some time pushing them on a swing or being a human jungle gym! 🙂
