I'm Going to Nicaragua

This is a random image to show you the geography.


That's correct. I am going with a group from my church. We are going to get a house built, and help at an orphanage. I've never been on a foreign mission trip before.


I am going because a group from my church goes frequently, I want to help out, see our church's Nicaraguan friends, and I haven't had an adventure for a while :)


Correction: That there was an orphanage is incorrect. It was a school.

What Fun: A Christmas Poem



After the ebb of sunset, here at twilight
A single pale horse and I make our journey dashing through the snow
Laughing, I go o’er graveyards and hallowed ground
Laughing all the way
Hear the requiem bells. They peal for thee
The luminaries hiss and show themselves—the specters and the spirits of those fallen before
What fun it is to ride and sing a slaying song tonight
