La Chureca Joy
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Sarah Hartley
La Chureca is a term for city trash dump in the capitol city, Managua. Many people from the city work in La Chureca and over 100 families live in small villages within the dump. I traveled down with a team to do ministry in the dumps and caught this photo of a team member loving on one of the children that lives at the dump. Pure Joy was on his face the whole time.
