The year isn’t over yet. End your year 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.
Starting in April of 2018, the country of Nicaragua has experienced extensive political unrest, including a period of violent protests. Thankfully, violence has significantly decreased since then. 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 for quite some time. 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.
