Team Testimonials

As we walked in faith, trusting that God sent us there to serve Him, we found ears ready to hear and hearts ready to respond. We had 40-50 women daily attending a women’s Bible study, around a dozen men, and countless children all coming to hear the gospel.
Bert Watts, Mountain Creek Baptist - Taylors, SC
We were able to feed the people at the dump. This was probably the most impressive, humbling experience of the trip.
Bob Fort, First Baptist - Clarksville, TN
We had a fantastic trip with Chosen Children Ministries. It is by far one of the best ministries to partner with in order to get students involved in the global missions.

GREATER Clapping, praising and smiling--- picture that while someone is driving- That would be me yesterday coming back from the gym. I have about a 20 minute drive between my gym and home and I take advantage of it to sing praise songs. I get some crazy looks but I don’t care. Do you know what it means to worship? The meaning of the New Testament Greek word most often translated “worship” (proskuneo) is “to fall down before” or “bow down before.” Worship is a state (an attitude) of spirit. Since it’s an internal, individual action, it could/should be done most of the time (or all the time) in our lives, regardless of place or situation, even driving. I always keep one hand on the wheel. We have some friends who have been to Nicaragua who know how to do this well and our friends in Nicaragua have crafted the act of worship well! Yesterday I had a great time of worship in my car. I don’t know if you have heard the song Greater by Mercy Me. If you haven’t you need to listen to it- over and over again. Worship starts with realizing something , the title of this song, HE is GREATER! The song starts off with how I feel some days: Bring your tired Bring your shame Bring your guilt Bring your pain Have you ever had someone ask you how are you today and you just say fine but inside you say to yourself “ not really- I am tired or if you knew my guilt or the shame of what I have done….. Friends, listen to the next few verses of the song. “ Don’t you know that’s not you’re name You will always be much more to me” Every day I wrestle with the voices That keep telling me I’m not right” Do you wrestle with that kind of talk to yourself? Listen to the next few verses: But that’s alright ‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed When others say I’ll never be enough And greater is the One living inside of me Than he who is living in the world GLORY~ at this point I might have taken both hands off the wheel and lifted them to God……. Do you get it? Do I get it? Greater is the one living inside me- than he who is in the world- Jesus died and defeated the accuser. We can: Bring your doubts-Bring your fears- Bring your hurt- Bring your tears There’ll be no condemnation here- You are holy, righteous and redeemed Romans 8:1 tells us “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” The next verses say” Every time I fall-There’ll be those who will call me-A mistake-Well that’s ok There’ll be days I lose the battle-Grace says that it doesn’t matter-‘Cause the cross already won the war He’s Greater” We will make mistakes- there are people waiting for us to fail. There are days of great battle- but because of GRACE- the war is WON. Some people ask how I can be happy- most of the time. ( I am most certainly not all the time)- I have to say the next few verse tell my secret: “ I am learning to run freely- Understanding just how He sees me- And it makes me love Him more and more- He’s Greater This puts into words how my heart feels. I am learning (I haven’t arrived and never will)- to run in His freedom. He is teaching me through His Word how He sees me. Yes, I am a sinner but because of Jesus taking all my past, present and future sins on the cross and conquering them through rising again, He sees me as righteous and clean! What He has done for me, makes me love Him more and more each day. He is simply greater than anything. Listen to this song today- Praise Him with all your heart and believe that what He has done is greater than anything! ...

We are already filling up for 2015, especially the summer months. If you are interested in taking a trip please contact our offices. We still have some dates open for 2014 too. It is easy to get together a team- you need people to commit to go and serve for a week. Cost of the trip for this year and next year is $600.00 plus your airfare( this varies according to where traveling from and seats available. You DO NOT have to be a church to travel with us. We have schools, workplace trips, couple trips, family trips and friends trips. We have already had over 700 people travel with us this year. Each person comes back with the same story- " I went down thinking I was going to help the people of Nicaragua and I came back the one blessed and changed.
