We wrapped up our week in Nicaragua today, meeting at 5 AM for a walk on the beach before breakfast at 6, prayer at 6:30, and departure from Surf Sanctuary to the Friday Clinic site at 7:05 AM.

We arrived on site at 7:20 AM.  There were many eager patients waiting to see the medical and dental teams.  Lunch was served at 12:15 PM.  Following lunch, the team packed up, and said heartfelt goodbyes to our beloved and appreciated translation team.  It was very difficult to leave after we all developed such close relationships between the two teams.  We will miss our translators so much!

All supplies were inventoried before heading to the Tola One World Clinic for a tour, so we all could see how our care this week would impact the community in the long-term.

Following the tour, we returned to the hotel to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, while taking many fun group photos together.  Dinner was served at 6 PM, followed by team shout-outs and life stories.

Team members then had the opportunity to purchase coffee to support Young Life and patches from One World.

Christmas presents have been taken care-of!  Everyone is looking forward to tomorrow’s day off to explore the local culture.
