While schools and businesses in the Charlotte area where shut down due to ice and sub-freezing temperatures last week, a team of nine men from Independence Hill Baptist Church in Huntersville labored in 95° heat in Nicaragua, ministering in the village of Santa Matilde by building a new 25 foot bridge across a drainage ditch which often floods during the summer rainy season.
The bridge will provide easy access to a plot of land the locals farm in an effort to sustain themselves in a nation long considered one of the poorest in the western hemisphere.
The Huntersville congregation supports a local village church in the northwest part of the country and has sent several teams there over the past few years, helping to improve living conditions and providing a well on the church property.
But this project was the most ambitious to date, partly because supplies for such an endeavor are difficult to come by in a place where Lowes and Home Depot exist only in fantasy land.
But in the end, the group was able to complete the project, and Mac Young of Huntersville reflected on the work this way, "God was able to touch, and change the lives of the people in Nicaragua through us, as we built a bridge both physically and spiritually for those who could not build one for themselves."
The next set of North Mecklenburg missionaries is already planning another trip to Central America over spring break, but a specific project has not yet been decided upon.
