Congratulations to Operation Nicaragua on your global co-operation award. This past spring when my husband and I were on a cruise from Lima to San Diego, we were seated at dinner with a couple from the U.S.
Roger was the pastor on board and as such, he and his wife were also deemed to be crew, to some degree. As part of the crew, when the ship stopped in Nicaragua on the way south to Lima, they were invited to accompany a number of crew members on a trip to a village they were supporting there.
They said that experience was the highlight of their trip. They told of meeting the wife of a wonderful man from a town in B.C. called Kamloops, who had been working to co-ordinate support for this area. The man’s name, they told us, was David Sakaki.
We laughed and told them that not only were we from Kamloops but that I remembered David (and his sister, Claire) from his student days at Kay Bingham elementary. Not only is it a very small world, but the efforts of you and your group are recognized and celebrated by people you are not even likely aware of. Congratulations again!
