We spent the morning (Sunday) here at The Eagle's Nest. Larry and Claire Boggs used to be able to take the children in and care for their needs as they worked towards an adoptive home for them. The government no longer allows them to put them up for adoption so they simply care for them now. There are 35 kids here at the time.
Many years ago God opened up a door for them to be able to buy The Eagles Nest. It was envisioned as a time share a long time ago but was never completed. The Boggs' were able to buy it and over many, many years brought it to this state. It is hard to see through the overcast but it overlooks the city of Solala. There is a huge lake down there, and if you blow up the pictures a bit, you will see the outline of a volcano on the right. These pictures are of The Eagle's Nest and some of the landscape. The real beauty is found in their mission which is found after these pictures.
Some of the landscape beauty on the grounds.
What a great work the Bogg's have done, and are doing, here at Eagle's Nest. I made a few new friends in a walk through the onsite orphanage. Santiago gets a starring role for almost jumping into my arms.
Here is a walk through the onsite school. I love that they were studying Respect!
Living quarters for the older kids.
What this ride is all about. This is the Eagle's Nest youth sports complex. This is what we want to build all over Nicaragua!
The chicken coop. Even the chickens serve Jesus here!
We have a short ride scheduled today, only about 80 miles, so that we are in position to cross the border into El Salvador tomorrow morning. I am writing this upon my return from the whole trip so I can definitively say that crossing Guatamala was my favorite part of the trip - other than being met at all of the churches in Nicaragua. Here are some assorted pictures of the afternoon ride.
We stopped along the way at Manna Worldwide Headquarters in Guatamala. Great opportunity for a few pictures.
