Delegation trips (or Team Service Trips) make a world of difference!

 
Over the last year we received hundreds of individuals with open arms to come and work alongside us in our ministry and the communities we serve. Each time these groups of individuals came, lives were changed.
 
If you have personally come on a delegation trip, then you know what it is like to travel to a rural community where we work and see the wonderful generosity and support of the local Nicaraguans, meet trained and committed health promoters, and make new friends even if you don’t speak the same language. 
 
Last December all of our health promoters came to our offices in Managua for the final 2014 training. While they were with us learning about how to deliver the best form of health care they can possibly provide their communities, we were able to talk with them about what they would like to see improved on in the future. Many of them answered that they want to receive more delegations; they want more of you! And, it is happening! This year we have the most trips scheduled than ever before. But, even more exciting is that communities that have never before met you, are getting to receive you into their homes.

Read a story of how this is already happening BELOW!

Bajos de Tomatoya welcomed their first Delegation to their community this January! 

 

Our first delegation in 2015 kicked off the New Year by traveling to Bajos de Tomatoya, a community we have been working with since 2008. Divinity students from Wake Forest University became the first delegation the community has ever received! Children and adults alike from the community received the team with open arms and appreciation of their hard work and service.
 
"The energy was high as numerous men, women, and children joined in to repair the community clinic and lend a helping hand," says delegation coordinator Carmen Curro. 
 
Close to twenty community members, the delegation team, and AMOS staff worked alongside one another throughout the week to make major repairs on the existing clinic. Their main project was to construct a retaining wall to keep water from flooding the clinic and repairing the well to provide water for the clinic and the school.
 
"Having the team in Bajos was very good," says community members. "We created good relationships and saw each other like family, and the language wasn't a barrier for us! The team was laughing and taking pictures all the time."
 
The delegation also made many new friends with the children as they colored, made instruments, sang, and learned about the importance of washing their hands. 
 
When asked if the community would like for other delegations to come they said, "Yes! These teams are a benefit for everyone in the community, and they help the development of our community as a whole."
 
So, to each and every one of you who supports AMOS in anyway, thank you! Every one of you matters to us and each way you support us is very important.

Thank You January Delegations:
