Start your summer with grit. With connection. With a whole new story. You’ll fly over
the Honduras mountains and step into the full Nicaraguan experience. You’ll work alongside Amigos
for Christ and get dirty making significant improvements to their village life—whether digging out
a trench for clean water or mixing concrete for chimneys. Mornings and evenings you’ll get the
chance to process your experience, share communal meals, have coffee in the rancho or sing your
heart out with a renewed sense of worship. Our goal is to connect you with your sponsored
Compassion child, but with the current political unrest we cannot guarantee that will happen.
Either way, it’s like nothing else on earth.
Since April of 2018, the country of Nicaragua has experienced extensive political
unrest, including a period of violent protests. Thankfully, over the past six months, violence has
significantly decreased. The majority of recent conflict has been seen at political rallies in a
few main cities. You may be asking, so is it even safe to go to Nicaragua? Crossroads relies
heavily on information and guidance from our partners that are living and working there each and
every day. They have communicated that roads have been clear and no violence has been seen where
they are located in over six months. They are able to work and live like they had before the unrest
started and are ready to host groups in 2019. Rest assured that Crossroads would never send people
to a location that we felt was unsafe, and we will not let fear guide our decisions. We are excited
to get back to helping our partners Amigos for Christ, and connecting our people with their
sponsored Compassion Children.
