The Weekend in Managua & Masaya, Nicaragua

March 31st, 2011

LISA LANDIS-I’m slowly easing back into the work week after an exciting time with Friends in Action Intl. reporting live from their work projects in Nicaragua.

We had some free time in Bluefields before we flew to Managua on Saturday.  Here are a few of the pictures from our time in Bluefields.  These are some of the places the Bluefields work teams get to experience, including trips to the market, the boat docks, & the town:

And here are some of the sites from our visit Sunday to Masaya, Nicaragua including “the lookout” over Lake Masaya:

Listeners can join Friends in Action work teams going to Nicaragua to build homes in May and June. Those interested can get more information or an application by calling the office at (717) 546-0208 or emailing FIA-USA@FIAintl.org.

    These pictures are fantastic. I am a fairly new listener to WJTL, and I love the music and the special features that you highlight, such as this trip. Thank you for providing an uplifting experience during my day rather than the negative messages we get from other media sources.

    Thank you so much for these incredible pictures. I am a teenager, and sometimes it is really hard for me to realize all of the stuff I take for granted. These pictures helped me to stop and think about everything that I take for granted in my life, especially the picture of the man sewing. Many people throughout the world have to make their own clothing, blankets, etc. but I can go buy most of my necessities. Thank you so much, the pictures really made me stop and think.

    My 5 year old daughter said, “Thank you Lisa Landis for putting the pictures up.”
