“Mateo 28:19” Mission To Nicaragua

In Partnership With Training Leaders International

September 1-8, 2018

Trip Description

This trip will include teaching for Corner of Love’s network of native pastors by Training Leaders International and also have simultaneous medical/clinic activities. It is open to people connected to TLI (for pastoral training, please contact Alex Kirk) and any volunteers who would like to help carry out the medical services and other activities happening on the same days TLI will be teaching. We expect “Mateo 28:19” to have about 25-40 team members but we have room for up to 60 and welcome any new participants! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! Many hands are needed!

Mateo 28:19 is finally happening! Corner of Love is excited to announce this new kind of mission week where volunteers will work closely with humble, Nicaraguan village pastors to help them deepen their bible knowledge and increase overall understanding of scripture. This week-long trip will have many new tasks, such as organizing pastoral resource packages and assisting the pastors as we help fit them for suits and ties. There will also be new stations to work at like Pastor Records station.

As part of the team, you’ll experience a week filled with hard work that is amazingly rewarding. We’ll carry out four medical clinics serving families who survive on less than $1 U.S. per day and lack basic needs like clothing, potable water, and medicine. Each day we’ll stock our supplies and set up work areas like height and weight, visual acuity, general medicine, dental care, pharmacy, clothing, prayer station, and more. The team will serve at Corner of Love’s new facility, Plaza de Bondad on La Lima River (one kilometer from the Quinta).

As always, we do NOT only need healthcare professionals, we also need general volunteers who are willing to help count pills and vitamins, organize the pharmacy, sort shoes and donations, and run the clinics. We have many jobs like filling goodie bags, sorting charts, separating toiletries, etc. that do not require healthcare knowledge. Of course there is a huge need for doctors, dentists, and nurses, too! Help glorify God and come and serve with us! “Nos vemos en la Quinta!”

Suggested Itinerary:

ARRIVAL DAY: Sept. 1– any flight arriving in Managua on this date

DEPARTURE DAY: Sept. 8 – any flight departing on this date

On these dates a COL staff person or representative will meet you at the airport. COL staff may be inside the secure area of the airport (wearing a Corner of Love t-shirt so you can identify them) or waiting outside the glass doors where you will come out.

Please note that because our team members often arrive throughout the day, our staff may instruct you to wait at a nearby restaurant or hotel while we welcome additional participants who arrive after you. Kindly be prepared to spend the afternoon or evening standing-by while we welcome those who arrive after you. If this is asked of you, our staff will take you to the waiting place and you will have access to wi-fi, food, etc. You may want to bring a bit of extra funds to buy lunch or dinner there. Usually all flights are in by 9PM, at which time we pick up team members who are waiting, load the last travelers, and then depart for San Ramon. (Departure time may be earlier, depending on the travel schedules of team-members.)

Alternative Itinerary:

If you arrive a day or more early we recommend staying at Camino Real (better hotel for resting) or Hilton Princess (better hotel for sightseeing) and prefer that we make the reservation for you. Please contact us so we can arrange your accommodations. You will be able to pay the hotel directly by cash or credit card.

If you depart after the scheduled “end date” you will be responsible for your own transportation and accommodations. If you need assistance with this please contact us.

On alternate dates a COL staff person or representative may or may not meet you at the airport. For this reason, less critical mission cargo is usually assigned to early travelers. (I.E. You will likely not carry meds or other prescription items that sometimes require our assistance to clear customs.) Approximately 3 to 7 days before you travel, we will email instructions on how to board the hotel’s shuttle and how we will connect with you.

Our team will depart to San Ramon on the Suggested Itinerary ARRIVAL DAY, usually at 9PM. Make sure to communicate with us about arriving early or staying past the end date.
