BENEFITING: CORNER OF LOVE MINISTRIES
In February of 2014, we will embark on a mission trip to Nicaragua with an organization called Corner of Love. This organization is located in our hometown of Maple Valley and sends several medical/dental brigades to San Ramón, Nicaragua every year.
We decided to go on this trip together after I (Madison) came back from my mission trip to Costa Rica and absolutely had fallen in love with the people and the culture of Central America. I have been interested in going into the medical field since a very young age and I can't wait to be able to interact with medical professionals in this environment. If I do go into medicine like I am planning to, then I know for certain that medicine is a skill I would want to bring into the mission field. I have a such a heart for children, Spanish, serving, and medicine and I can't wait for all of these things to be in one place!
I (Stephanie) first heard that Madison wanted me to go on this trip and was apprehensive. Once I realized what a special experience this would be and how much I would gain from getting out of my comfort zone, I purchased two plane tickets to Nicaragua without telling Madison and placed them in her room for her to find as a surprise after school. I am so excited to be able to serve alongside my daughter and have this bonding experience with her before she goes off to college in a short year and a half. I can't wait to see her in her element and doing what she loves. This is something that I am looking forward to sharing with her and growing through.
