Apoyo, Nicaragua

Ahhh... Apoyo.  My favorite part of the trip!  

Apoyo is a crater lake inside of what used to be a volcano.  After the top of the volcano blew off, it filled with water.  Now it's the cleanest lake in Central America (odd considering how filthy all the other lakes are in Nicaragua).  The water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature.  I, however—had a temperature of 101 degrees our first day there : (  Major bummer!

I felt very weak, so I went to our room and collapsed in bed.  We texted some friends and asked them to pray for me.  Just an hour later, my fever dropped down to 99 without any medicine.  By morning, I was 100% fever free.  Jesus healed me in time to enjoy what I consider to be the "Hawaii of Central America."

We celebrated Michael's 30th birthday here and even bumped into some folks from Atlanta too : )  It was the best atmosphere for a vacation.  I would love to go back!  We swam, kayaked, ate, worked on our tans, and read our books—all while chill tunes played in the background.
