Michel – Author: The Iguana Tree

Last February my teenage daughter and I travelled to Palacaguina, Nicaragua under the auspices of 516NOW. We spent five days prepping then painting an elementary school and developing friendships with the people there. The experience touched my heart in wonderful and unexpected ways. Often I recall those dear Nicaraguans, how despite the language barrier we became friends though open hearts, willing minds, and a shared desire to work side by side to do good and spread light in this world.
