In December 2012, Audrey Hudgins led a group of students and staff members to Nicaragua. This was to be PWOB's third trip to Nicaragua, where PWOB was founded. The Nicaragua team worked on an infrastructure project focused on improving the lives of orphans living at Casa Padre Wasson in Jintotepe, the Nicaraguan home of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. The team spent a majority of their time installing a post and wire fence around a pasture for the orphanage's cows. Working alongside the pequeños, the PWOB crew dug holes, planted posts, and strung barbed wire between the posts.
When not digging in the Nicaraguan sunshine, the PWOB team spent much of their time with the children who call Casa Padre Wasson home. Lasting relationships were forged over meals, games, dancing, and songs, making the experience highly personal for each individual crew member. This was PWOB's first time working with this branch of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos and we look forward to continuing the relationship in the future.
