LATEST NEWS FROM DAVID HALLETT, currently in Nicaragua with a group of 14 Chemeketa Community College Students for a Spring Break Mission Trip:

ˇ         David Hallett, on Saturday March 19th, via Facebook:





Managua, Nicaragua: 90 degrees, sunny and a slight breeze - just perfect! The students from Chemeketa are fantastic! We will head out to the rural communities on Monday to perform basic healthcare screenings on children - anemia testing, vision checks, height, weight etc. Should be a great week!





ˇ         David Hallett, on Tuesday, March 22nd, via Facebook:


Two days in the field and the Chemeketa team has served over one hundred Nicaraguan children. 50% of the children in Cumaica Norte are suffering from anemia. Today we hiked to El Roblar and heard howler monkeys all along the trail. Very cool! I am so impressed with our students! They are working very hard. Muy bueno! I will try to post more updates soon. The internet is not very reliable where we are now.


David Hallett, on Thursday, March 24th at 4:30 p.m. via Facebook:
Just got back into Managua. What a trip! The Chemeketa delegation saw over 200 children during the 4 days of health clinics. We met some amazing families and hiked into some very difficult, mountainous areas. No broken bones and plenty of excitement. Thanks everyone!
