Translating for Hope


I’m a retired hospital chaplain. I recently interpreted for a wonderful group of physicians and nurses from Hope Clinic International as they provided medical care in Jesus’ name to children in Jinotega and Esteli, Nicaragua. We cared for 60-100 children a day often praying with families for physical and spiritual needs. Many of the children lived in houses with dirt floors and wood burning cooking stoves which can lead to an increased risk of asthma. The team was a beautiful group of Christians from several denominations that desired to show Jesus’ love in concrete ways.
