The St. Thomas' team arrived in Managua Sunday, August 6th, making their way to the west coast of the country where they visited with non-profits, businesses and churches in the region Monday through Wednesday. They then returned to Managua Thursday, where they visited an orphanage and worshiped with a local church partner, before returning home on Saturday.

The following is a letter we received from the OrphaNetwork's Director:
Hello Hamilton, Karen and Tim,
I am excited to send you this update highlighting our progress this year in spite of the turmoil that is happening in Nicaragua. Our progress is a testimony to our great God who continues to go before us and allow us to make a huge impact for the children we serve. Thanks to you and your investment in us and our children, lives are being changed forever.
This year we are expecting to be able to 'declare victory' in 3 rural communities over malnourishment according to World Health Organization standards. This is a huge success after many years of effort by our medical team. In addition, despite the loss of many jobs in the country, our innovative sewing training program is helping us to Break the Cycle of Poverty by landing jobs for over 80 students. God is still blessing these efforts in wonderful ways.
Thank you for being part of this great Adventure that God has us all on together. I know you will enjoy reading about these results and knowing that we could not do this without you. Thank you so much for your continued support for the children we serve.
May God continue to bless you as you pursue Him and engage in His mission. I am looking forward to meeting you in person in the future. We also need to touch base about your calendars for a possible trip to Nicaragua first quarter of 2019!
Standing Together, Ted
