A blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
I spent the week of Spring Break in Nicaragua. I went to work with Word of Life, Nicaragua. We went into the mountains near Honduras and walked house to house telling people about Jesus. It was quite an experience.
I was nervous about leaving my family (and my chickens.) As is true of all worrying, this was wasted energy. Everywhere we went in Nicaragua there were chickens. In fact, I started taking more pictures of chickens than of people. I had to remind myself why I was there.
The chickens were a part of what I did, though. I was able to talk to the people about their chickens and show them pictures of mine. It gave me a connection the other team members didn’t have. I imagine long after I’m gone, they will remember the Chicken Wrangler who came to tell them about Jesus.
