T-Minus 18 Days to Nicaragua

2009 is off to a hot start, and it is hard to believe that our team will be leaving for Nicaragua in just 18 days.  We will be working with World Hope to construct some pavilions to be used by Missionary Paul Heier and National Pastors who will rotate Discipleship and Medical teams based out of  the city of Teco.  Another exciting announcement is that God has brought Ward Hodges to base his World Hope ministry out of Cornerstone.  Ward's ministry with us was announced last Sunday during our Annual Vision Meeting, and his position will be to strengthen the small groups and missions ministries of our church.  This trip will no doubt be the first of many trips that our church will take with World Hope around the world.  Ward and His wife Amy have a wonderful baby boy named Ethan.
