Mission Trip to Nicaragua


 The team’s home base in Nicaragua will be “Finca (Farm) el Peten,” an organic coffee farm with a dormitory and dining facilities for volunteers. Located near Jenotega in north central Nicaragua, it is about a three-hour bus ride from the airport in Managua. The Farm is only a few minutes from the village of Los Robles, where volunteers serve alongside local residents while doing community development work and teaching VBS.

Age/ability: Participants must be at least 14 years old (parent or guardian must accompany minor.) No special building skills are required.

Type of Work: Teams work in Los Robles, pouring concrete flours, building ovens and helping with other health-driven community improvement projects.  In the afternoon, the team offers VBS to women and children, and makes prayer visits to families who request them. Learn more at www.hoi.org

CostTotal cost for the trip is approximately $2,100. With support from Westminster and a private donor, the cost is $840 per adult, $630 per teen. This covers meals, lodging, transportation, building supplies and one night of R&R. Fundraising by working on Westminster’s Missions Celebration is required.
