My first month back in Nicaragua as a Program Director is going by much faster than the month I spent here this summer as an intern. It seems that there is always something to do and the responsibilities of Program Directors are much greater than an intern. While working as a PD is a lot more work, it is also a lot more rewarding. We are able to build stronger relationships in the community, set goals and see them carried out, and I have been able to truly settle in and call the Manna house “home." One of the many things that make this work so rewarding - the smiles on these little girls' faces! I am so excited to see what the next seven months have in store!!
