Alright BWCM friends we need a GOD size effort. I know many of you have already contributed to the relief in the NorthEast but we need to do it one more time. FedEx has given us the use of a tractor trailer to haul relief supplies to NJ. We will park the trailer at North Roanoke Baptist beginning at noon on Monday and we plan to leave around noon on Thursday. I'm asking each of you to go to your pastor and ask him to make an announcement and see what your church can do. If every church in the Roanoke valley brought in one truck load we can fill this trailer to the GLORY of God. We can use new and gently use clothes, coats, blankets, diapers, cleaning supplies and bottled water. If you have any questions just message me and I'll get back to you.
If your unable to get supplies to Roanoke you or your church can go to our web site and donate to help offset the cost of travel for our construction teams
The truck will be at 6402 Peters Creek Rd, Roanoke starting noon Monday and will be there each day from 8AM until 5PM each day and we plan to leave for Sewell around noon on Thursday
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.
