A good friend and I have just returned from Nicaragua, where we spent a week visiting and affirming friends and brothers, intending to encourage them of God’s goodness and nearness to them in the midst of difficult time. This title comes from a song that is sang in Nicaragua, and it is sang there as an expression of affection. Nicaraguans are proud of their country, heritage and have a hope for good things to come. Let’s join them in that hope. As you likely know, violence and bloodshed gripped the country in the Spring of 2018, with much loss and damage reaching on a far scale. While estimates vary, it seems 500+ were killed, thousands wounded, and several hundred are still unaccounted for. This is not including those who are currently political prisoners.

What we found, in my opinion, was a country in trauma.
