It’s amazing how quickly we can travel around our world. Saturday morning I was in the comforts of my own home, and Saturday night I was in a hotel in Managua, Nicaragua. I’ve spent the last few days working with Because We Care Ministries training pastors in Choluteca, Honduras and Somotillo, Nicaragua. These men are my hereos. They serve as pastors in small villages around northern Nicaragua and southern Honduras. They live a tough life, and nothing about their life is easy. One of the pastors in Honduras had to walk over three hours in order to take a two hour bus ride so that he could be at our 9am pastor training. That’s commitment. The excitement these men have for learning God’s Word is contagious. I don’t have to tell you how easy we have it in the United States. The poverty and struggle that we see here is humbling. And yet the problems they face in their churches are very similar to the problems we see in the North American church. We are challenging them to serve their communities and to lead with a Holy boldness. Will you join me in praying for these men as they are studying and learning this week. We return to Managua tonight (Thursday night) as I get ready to return home and Don and Pam await the arrival of the Student Ministry Team from FBC Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday. Then it is back to Somotillo for another great week of ministry Our New Facebook Page
We have created a new Facebook Page for Because We Care Ministries.
