"!{float:right;margin:0 0 0 5px;}http://northfield.org/files/thumb_School.jpg!":http://northfield.org/files/School.jpg On Saturday a group of Northfielders returned from a 13 day mission trip to Nicaragua. The group provided medical, education and construction support to the community of Jalapa, Nicaragua, a remote community in northern Nicaragua by the Honduran border. The group's sponsor ISLA www.isla.cc, has been connecting with the community of Jalapa since the early 90's.
