Ocotal, Nicaragua – 2022
Mayhem Mission joined Get Strong Ministries with a team in October 2021, and a large portion of that group got the chance to return to Nicaragua this past December for what they called to be “The Greatest Mission Trip Ever 2.0”.
This team got to help with all of the finishing touches to get the new gym up and running. The night before CrossFit Get Strong’s opening day, the team got to join ministry leaders Scott + Christie in prayer to dedicate the new space to the Lord, and open up the hearts of leaders + coaches to allow Him to have His way. People flooded the classes all week long, members from the old gym, and new ones wanting to join. Being a team full of coaches, we were able to use them to help pour into our busy first few days. They helped run the classes everyday, and would coach to help out our own coaches learn some new skills from some different perspectives.
Not only did the team dive into how to help “coach” the coaches, but they were able to pour into them spiritually as well. Devotionals, prayers, and fellowship was a common theme of the week.
Between CrossFit classes and soaking up the excitement of the new gym being opened, the team was able to take the local rehab center through a workout, play soccer with a group of young boys, and visit a few different members in their homes. We use each avenue as a way to build relationships, share testimonies, and ultimately bring more people to Christ.
