Today was a very bittersweet day.  It was our last day with our translators, and while we were excited for them to spend the day with us, it was hard knowing that this was it.  We had the opportunity to go on a boat ride through the second largest body of water in Nicaragua, docking at the city of Grenada, which was founded by Christopher Columbus.  There are 356 islands in this body of water, but our favorite was Monkey Island because Lucy and little Lola came out to say hi to us.  On the way back to the dock, the students shared the Gospel with the captain of the boat.  He was already a believer but was greatly encouraged by speaking with our students.

We had some time to shop this afternoon, and then we had a wonderful dinner.  Our cook, Silvia, spoiled us by baking a special cake for our last night.  She said that we are her children, and she loves to spoil her children (she has eight of her own).  As our translators told us goodbye, they said that they had never felt like part of the team before like they had with us.  Usually they do not stay for the last day, but they wanted to spend more time with us.  Many tears were shed as we hugged and said, “See you later,” because we know that if we do not meet again on this earth, we will at least see each other in heaven.

Tomorrow we fly back to the States.  Please pray for safe travel and swift dealings in the airports.  Please pray that we are able to pass through customs quickly and make our connection.  We will not arrive back at the college until very late tomorrow night, so we will post an update when we get back.  The students will call parents Thursday morning before breakfast to update you.  Thank you so much for your prayers and walking along this journey with us!

Following Him,

Kenny & Whitney
