We arrived in Belize three days ago and so far have met some incredible people here in Belmopan. It has been an adventure navigating a new city and getting grounded here.

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at a children’s home for girls who have been removed from difficult and abusive environments. Here they provide nurturing care, counseling, education and empowerment to all victims of abuse and neglect.

We got to do a Bible study with the girls, help with their homework and tutoring, hang out and play. This is a ministry we will be working closely with during our time here and we can’t wait to return tomorrow.

We are departing Masatepe today and will be spending the night in Managua close to the airport for our flight to Belize tomorrow.
.
Part of me feels like we have been here forever and the other part feels like these five weeks have passed in the blink of an eye. I can’t adequately describe my love for this little city and it’s people. I will miss the street market right outside our house, the gallo pinto and tostones every night, the neighborhood kids playing football all day on our street, speaking Spanish all day, coffee at beto’s, the moto taxis, and all our new friends we have made here.
.
It has been a joy to serve and partner with some amazing organizations and ministries here in the city. We have worked at a farm that operates as a rehabilitation center, played with kids and served food at the trash dump, helped wire a house for electricity for a local family, cleared land for a sustainable garden at an elementary school, hosted a worship night, partnered with a youth outreach, and everything in between.
.
I couldn’t be more proud of our YWAM students. I am blown away by their availability to serve, readiness to work hard and their capacity to love deeply.
.
Although I am sad to leave this place, I know we will be back and because part of my heart is here it will feel a bit like coming home ❤️🇳🇮

Yesterday we were at the top of a volcano, today we are at a lagoon nestled in a tropical dry forest. I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate my birthday with my little family here in Nicaragua.

We only have one week left in Nicaragua until we make our way to Belize. How is it that a place can feel so much like home so fast! We have had so many opportunities to serve and partner with some incredible people and organizations that are making a huge impact in the lives of Nicaraguans.
Not only has it been an incredible honor to serve here, the experience of doing it together with my family fills me to the brim. I pray that the things our children are seeing and experiencing now make a lasting impact in their hearts and lives.

Here’s to savoring and putting everything we have into these last seven days! 🇳🇮💙

This sweet girl has all the makings of a little traveler. She eats anything, sleeps anywhere, and has a smile and a wave for anyone she meets. Seeing and experiencing the world at a young age is such an invaluable gift and I’m so happy that she has been by our side on over 20 airplane flights and soon-to-be six countries.

Just over two weeks ago our family and a group of YWAM students arrived in Nicaragua. We are here partnering with wonderful organizations that help the oppressed, serve families, and work to see communities transformed. Already this country and it’s people have captivated my heart. We can’t wait to see what else is to come these next two months in Central America! 🇳🇮 🇧🇿💙

This girl. My adventurous, kind, confident, silly, creative and free spirited eight year old.

Today we celebrated your birthday with a room full of balloons and cocoa pebbles for breakfast (your special request,) a few presents wrapped in brown paper (all art supplies of course,) a play date after school, homemade sourdough pizza, and a walk to the new frozen yogurt shop. You told me it was the best birthday ever.

You are pure light and joy and I’ll never know how I got so lucky to be your mama. I love you to the moon and back my Talia Holland ❤️

This one right here. 12 years of being my constant, my greatest and truest allie, the one who loves me the fiercest and the deepest. Thank you for being my partner, my true north, my other half. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Each year just gets better and better, here’s to many more ❤️
