In 1999, John and Kerry traveled to Nicaragua with a team from Christ Community Church of Camp Hill, PA. The team went to bring encouragement to missionaries David and Bonnie Spenser, who oversee several churches, operate a radio station and engage in relief ministries and to pray for the nation of Nicaragua. John ministered in two churches in Managua and the team spent time praying for the nation especially one memorable day at Prayer Mountain, a beautiful location which overlooks the entire city of Managua with a great view of Lake Managua and the entire city.
