A MESSAGE FROM NICARAGUA
Thank you all the BLC Senders for making it possible for the 2013 Team to be the Goers! Thank you for your prayers, for your financial help and for the suitcases full of supplies you provided. The following story is from the founder of LifeLink International, the organization that started Centro Escolar. A good message for all of us….
Live to give and give to live! I was so touched recently as the grandfather of one of our students, dressed in his work clothes and carrying his machete along with a 5 gallon bucket, entered the LifeLink Ministry Base campus. With a big smile on his face, he began to tell how he and his family were so appreciative and thankfully blessed by the love, education and opportunity his grandson Doriam was receiving at Centro Escolar.
The bucket he carried was overflowing with a generous bounty of watermelons and squash straight from his garden. The fruit of his labor and love was presented as a gift because that’s all he had to offer. My heart was bursting – my soul rejoiced! I realized at that moment, this is a man who understands the principles of sowing and reaping.
Living to give – giving to live, it’s one of our core values at LifeLink International and one we teach to our students and team.
Thank you for living to give!
