Good morning and blessings from Casa De Shelly……….Great day of ministry starting with a powerful radio broadcast. It’s always great to listen to the testimony of our team members and hear what is going on in the life of others. After radio we did volley ball at the clinic and just spent a little time engaging the community and sharing Jesus. Mid morning we began preparing lunch for pastors that were meeting at Prince of Peace Baptist Church. Thankful for the opportunity to share a challenge with the pastors and Pastor Owen from Bethany UMC West Jefferson NC spent time encouraging the pastors. Early afternoon found us in San Miguelito engaging, feeding and sharing the good new of Jesus Christ. Today we travel to San Francisco North to meet, resupply and feed the “Extreme Team” and share the gospel in a city we are seeking to plant a new church. Later today we will meet with the first 25 people that will begin training here at the farm and learn how to sustain life and provide for their family. What an exciting day, praying for God’s Provision and Protection, IHL, Donald and Pammie

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. To the north it is bordered by Honduras, and to the south by Costa Rica. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere, partly because of the long civil war of the 1980’s and the devastation caused by hurricane Mitch in 1998. The vast majority of the five million inhabitants live in abject poverty with many suffering from severe malnutrition and starvation.

This ministry helps people meet their chief need for a Savior, while also helping to meet the critical physical needs of hunger, poor substandard housing, shortage of water, lack of schools and education, lack of churches and pastor sponsorship. We offer general economic, healthcare, and emergency relief. To date we have helped feed tens of thousands of hungry people with hundreds of tons of food.

Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone with the desire to minister to hurting people in another culture can volunteer! Experience is helpful but not required. The ability to speak Spanish would be a plus, but we always have interpreters who assist in our work. Each team spends about a week in country ministering to the Nicaraguan people in some of the more remote villages.If you are interested in learning more, please contact us to discover if you can become part of this wonderful work.
