Debbie Ray posted the following to her FaceBook Saturday afternoon:
Please continue to pray for our mission team that is in Nicaragua. They were leaving Rio Blanco this morning to go to Boca Church in the outback and it is raining and has been since about 3:30 this morning. Pray for safe travels for them as they travel in the rain and that many would come to know Jesus as they minister to those they come in contact with. We will not hear from them again for a few days as there is no internet or cell service where they are going now.
