Unity

Over the course of this trip, we have found a recurrent theme…not only among our team, but among the Nicaraguan people. We were blessed to have the opportunity to be able to attend a worship service at Pastor Wilbur’s church Wednesday evening and the Scripture that moved all of our hearts came from Psalm 133.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!”

Unity has been our theme and will continue to be the theme not only for our team but for our Traders Point family, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world.

Each one of us has had a unique perspective on the trip so far based on the people we’ve met, relationships we’ve built, the laughter we’ve shared and the things we’ve felt God doing in our hearts and on this trip.
