Hi Annette
I just wanted to e-mail you to say that the Arthur group had an amazing trip.  I wanted to especially say that Doug Walker was excellent as our PAN director (even though he may be related to William Walker).  As you know, he has a great sense of humor, he’s organized, he’s informative, full of energy and best of all has a heart for Jesus that is contagious.  Our meals were very good, Chepe was excellent as our driver and Samuel was excellent as well.  PAN gave us the opportunity to serve God in ways that we could probably not experience on our own.  My daughter Carrie and I went to see her Compassion child at the Project – and I was very impressed by what I saw.  We were greeted by the principle and one of the teachers; we were given a nice tour (they had a computer room, and music room, baking class going on in the kitchen, and two classes running while we were there – I was very impressed).  Anyway, we returned safe and enjoyed serving God through PAN missions, and I am looking forward to being apart of another team in the future.

Take care, (may the Lord bless you as you go to Nicaragua in the near future)
