Step Away From The Comfort Zone: Nicaragua Service Trip

On the second night of our trip, each Imagination Federation volunteer decided to sleep over a Dreamer’s house. Victoria Montero, college student from Miami, said, “It was a big shock. You really get to witness how poor these children are.  There was never a moment that I wanted to leave though, that family offered us every single thing they had. I have never felt so welcomed.” We all agreed that staying over the children’s homes were wonderful experiences and that this would be repeated in the next trips to come.
