One of my creeps is set to go on a 16 day mission trip to Nicaragua at the beginning of June. If you've been following the news, there has recently been some unrest in Managua, students protesting Ortega, dozens of protesters getting killed. The US state dept has a travel advisory at level 3. So I'm not feeling all that great about sending him. He'll be in an area about 45 minutes outside Managua.
Anybody with insight on the accuracy of US state department travel advisories? Or even better, the situation in Nicaragua? I really feel like he can do some good while he's down there - helping villagers build water purification systems from simple materials - and I think it would be great for him to serve other people (instead of himself for a change). But I also don't want to feed him into a wood chipper, I'd kinda like to get him back in one piece. Any insight is appreciated.
