The trip to Nicaragua in February of 2011 had a big impact on our church. Obviously, it was life changing for the people who travelled to the city of Leon, but it truly felt like a project that our whole church was touched by. I am praying and hoping that 2012 will be the same. Plans are underway for a team to travel to Nicaragua in 2012 to the area south of Managua. More details will be announced in the weeks ahead. If you have interest in being part of a perspective-altering missions trip with some really great people, come to the Nicaragua 2012 Information Night on Sept 15 at 7:00 pm. At that meeting Paul Burns will share detailed information about cost, location, ministry options and answer any and all questions. Mark the date of September 15 on your calendar and watch the CONNECT Blog or Westheights Weekly for more information.

If you are new to our church and you want to see some of the highlights from the 2011 trip you can look at the blog posts by viewing the “Tags” area on the right side of the blog (scroll down the page a little distance and look for the Tags area) and clicking the link called “Nicaragua.” Using the Tag feature like this will filter out only the Nicaragua posts for your viewing benefit.
