Día de las madres

Here in Nicaragua, día de las madres (Mother’s Day) is a big deal. Celebrations aren’t limited to just the day itself. As it’s always on May 30th, this year’s Mother’s Day fell on Monday, and many businesses that are normally open on Monday—including banks—were closed. Many restaurants that are normally closed on Monday were open. Kids got out of school both on Monday and this last Friday. And, of course, the number of cakes and flowers sold skyrocketed.

For the kids’ service, we celebrated by decorating with balloons and teaching kids about obeying their parents in the Lord (Eph 6:1).
