What was a funny experience?
- We fell out of a triciclo (public transport made of a little cart and a bike contraption where a nice Nicaraguan sits and bikes you around) and the tricicler still made us pay. 😀 Helpful hints: even though they will allow it, don’t go more than 3 in a triciclo. And help the driver avoid potholes. (Kayla)
- Falling in a canal because the streets were so flooded we couldn’t tell where the bridge was. (Jenna)
What was a crazy experience?
- Scorpions in my bed and tarantulas in the shower. (Jenna)
- There were lots of earthquakes. Sometimes you will feel them. Sometimes you won’t. It’s normal. Don’t freak out. (Kayla)
What was a spiritual experience?
- I loved it when the members chose the hymns at the baptisms. They always choose “the Spirit of God”. And in Nicaragua, you always sing the WHOLE SONG. Always. It was funny and cute in the beginning, but then it really started to hit me that these people that I love so much will one day sing this song when their temple in Nicaragua gets dedicated. It was always a special moment when they chose to sing that song. (Kayla)
What are some interesting facts about the Managua North Mission?
- The church has been around for a while, but during the country’s civil war, the church got forced into minimizing and they went from having stakes to having these units called family nuclei. Many people went inactive during this time, But now the church is back and there are many stakes. (Kayla)
What was the weather like?
- Hot and dry in some areas, constant rain during some seasons, colder in the mountains. (Jenna)
- It is always hot. There is a rainy season that is very necessary. Not very windy. Never cold. But bring a jacket because it is cold in the church building. There is AC there. 😉 (Kayla)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- You can be up front with them, very generous and welcoming. (Jenna)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Dress for warm weather, bring sweaters, extra shoes, a really good umbrella, nothing you wouldn’t want stolen. (Jenna)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
What are some skills you gained?
- Asking inspired questions, how to work beyond point of exhaustion, how to visit people, how to help in all church organizations and activities, and how to be guided by the Spirit. (Jenna)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- Be bolder. (Jenna)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Managua North?
- Visit people!!!! Visiting teaching and home teaching!! (Kayla)
- Learn the language as fast and as thoroughly as you can, don’t get discouraged when you see negative things in leaders and people, learn to recognize and act on promptings, beware of pride and time-wasting. (Jenna)
