Sam Estes (2011-2013 volunteer) just left yesterday after coming back to Nicaragua to visit friends and co-workers for three weeks. Everyone enjoyed seeing his face around the Center again and it was good to catch up!
Sam is currently living in Minneapolis, actually just a few short blocks from Amanda (2009-2011 volunteer) and her husband Melvin. He is working as a case manager at a restorative justice organization. His co-volunteer Andrea Kraybill is currently studying at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. She’s excited to be hitting the books again to combine her interests in art, theology and ministry. She also didn’t waste time in finding the local salsa dancing scene and has already fit right in on the dance floor.
We’re so lucky to have had such great volunteers go before us and we appreciate all of the guidance and wisdom they gave us and continue to give us throughout our time here.
