I wasn't sure how to bump Nelson. He would have liked this. Yesterday was his visitation at our place in La Carpio. I think it went all night. Today, the final trip back to Nicaragua.

We met little Carlos last summer at our medical clinic. He has a heart condition. Our soccer team sponsored him for Christmas this year. He got a motorcycle transformer and a nice bucket of assorted food items to help out his mom. Please pray for the little guy.

Early Christmas Miracle

Jan Carlos (16 and one of my favorite delinquents) recently wound up on the business side of some brass knucks. I wanted to help, but all I thought we could do was get an estimate. When I told him we had an appointment. His eyes teared up. Most people wouldn't bother with a kid like this.

Lighting his shoe on fire at the dentist office.

The permanent solution will be around $500. This miraculous same day new smile is a temporary solution. The good people at Centro Christiano de Alabanza did this for $20. Super big thanks to our awesome friends Maximo and Doctora Karol! Praise and glory to the giver of all good things!
