Christy Faber has attended a Dispatch trip to Nicaragua the past two years. She had a lot of positive things to say about her experience. You can learn more about the Nicaragua trip by reading this recap. Another group heads to Nicaragua in April, 2016!
What did you take away from your Dispatch trip?
The Dispatch trip was a wonderful experience. I now am more aware of the Nicaraguan community and have experienced a small piece of mission work in this country. I know that missions is now going to be a part of my life. I want to share a trip with each of my four children!
Tell me about a specific moment that stands out from your trip.
After worshiping with the International Christian Fellowship families, we were given a tour of the Nicaraguan Christian School. During the tour, I felt a desire to be in Nicaragua and in the mission field. It was later that we decided to apply to NCA, but we will not be serving in that role at this time.
How did this trip impact you as an individual and in the roles you play?
The trip to Nicaragua impacted my life as a mom, because I want to share missions with my children. I am encouraging them to see other cultures and use the gifts given by God to help others. I am more mission minded and try to focus on what is important in life.
Have you had the opportunity to share your experiences with others? And if so, how?
I have shared this experience with people in my church with a group video presentation. I have shared with parents and sibling through pictures and stories. I have shared with other teachers with stories and explanations of what we did while we were there.
If there is one or two words that would sum up your experience, what would they be?
Inspiring and educational!
