Falling into place

So it's been while since I posted, but things have been falling into place over the last several weeks. We will be moving to Nicaragua at the beginning of March to work with Kathy and Halle August of Alongside Ministries En Nicaragua (AMEN) for aprox. 4 months. The Mission Society didn't work out and we kept coming back to Kathy and Halle. They are originally from our church here in Woodinville, but have been living and working in Nicaragua for the past 7 years. We're excited and terrified all at the same time, and there are many details to work out as we get ready to go, but we're looking forward to helping them with the preschool, feeding program, library, and sports complex that they are involved with. The Augusts also host teams from different churches who come and work for a week or so at a time. We anticipate helping with preparations for teams as well.

We really feel and see God's hand in all of this as we step out in a new direction. The kids will be coming as well, and we're working on our Spanish skills! Drew will be homeschooled for the remainder of the school year. We plan to be back in July and he will start 2nd grade in the fall in the Northshore School District again. Megan plans on returning to teaching in Everett, and Nick is hoping to start his teaching certification program in the fall as well.

Our current needs are:

PRAYER! Huge... there are so many details and little things to work out that we're unsure of and we need God's grace and peace as we go forward.
Financial: We we have no income during this time and will need financial support. If you feel led to help in this way, you can send a check with "Nick and Megan: Nicaragua" to WCUMC (
