Extreme Mission Ironman Trip Nicaragua

Where: El Rama, Nicaragua


Description: You will begin your trip by flying into Managua, Nicaragua and spending the night at our base camp in Masaya. The next day we will travel by bus to the city of El Rama. Each day we will travel down the river every day and return at night to our hotel in El Rama. The hotels are adequate and in most cases air-conditioned.
During this Ironman trip you will be heading down the Rio Escondido and the El Rama Rivers to reach villages that are extremely remote. You will be working in local communities and sharing and training on the word of God. I am hoping that we will be able to do some physical work on the local schools as well. In previous years we were able to build new swing sets and it was a huge blessing to the community.
The 2019 mission trip with be a little more difficult than in the past because of some of the government unrest that has been happening. We believe it is completely safe to take teams, but because of some of the things happening in the country we do not recommend this trip for youth groups. It is a great trip for college students and adults who are bold and ready to go anywhere, even if the conditions are not perfect. Way of the Cross is looking for a few strong men and women that will be like the missionaries of old and go and share the Good News regardless. If you are looking for adventure, this is the trip for you.
