WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Straight Street International is a faith-rooted, 501 (c)3 non-profit organization in Granada Nicaragua that offers many ministries serving local churches and the people of Nicaragua. God desires to use the gifts that he has given you to encourage you and also to impact others in Nicaragua. Check them out at straightstreetinternational.org.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
We will be helping local Pastors build relationships in the communities they live through evangelism, feeding, and construction work to help those in this community. Breakfast is typically at 7:30 each day. After breakfast we encourage each team to have a moment of prayer and devotion before they head off for the day. Most days we send our teams in different directions doing different types of ministry. Because of the close proximity of most ministry sites each team travels back to the guesthouse for lunch. We try to build in some rest time as well after lunch to help you cool down from the heat and prepare yourself to head back out for ministry. Dinner is usually served around 5:30 each evening. After dinner, we encourage each team to have a share time and worship God for how he worked through each and every person. Afterwards, we encourage the team to grab some gelato in Granada and enjoy the city. 

WILL THERE BE ANYTHING FUN TO DO?
There will possibly be a free day for us to plan an opportunity to hit a few tourist spots in Granada if the team chooses to do so.
