So we’re off! We left Lake City at 4:30 this morning, off on our great Managua 2019 adventure! Marcia, Caron, and Lyn picked up RC Sharma and then we met Todd Laws in Gunnison at about 5:30. With no snow on the roads and thanks to Todd’s excellent driving, we made good time to DIA and were able to send RC off to Los Angeles while we headed to Nashville via Southwest Airlines , and then to Fort Lauderdale, where we are now. Our Managua Spirit Airlines flight leaves at about midnight eastern time, and we fly for 2.5 more hours to end our very long day to Managua.

Some of you may remember that Brandon Galicia had originally planned to be a part of our team, but unfortunately he was just laid off at his job and needed to seek new employment. We will miss Brandon and his gentle spirit and good humor, but pray that he finds work for the winter in Delta or Montrose.

 Our plane at DIA, ready to take us to Nashville.

 Marcia and Todd relaxing during our brief layover in Nashville. Even the airport restaurants here have live country music!

  Lyn and Caron ready for the last leg, awaiting the plane in Fort Lauderdale. By the way, Lyn holds the record for the most security checks on this trip, with his carry on being opened twice, once for his laptop and the other for his PayDay candy bars! But all is good.

Please continue praying for us! We feel blessed and privileged to be on this trip. Tomorrow we will not have an early start as we will be recovering from our long day. Tomorrow afternoon we plan to go to Oasis de Esperanza school and help them set up for their annual Christmas concert, which we will attend tomorrow evening.

Hasta mañana, amigos!
