Good evening from Somotillo Nicaragua! We had another amazing day on the mission field. We started our morning off by sending some team members to the radio, where they were able to share their testimonies and sing a song. When they returned, some of the men headed to Villa Esperanza to clean around Mr. Julio’s new house to get it ready for painting. The girls headed to a school where we were able to share the gospel using the wordless book through our parachute. We were able to hand out little bracelets to each child as well as give out school supplies to the principal of the school. This afternoon we headed to a new village called “The Pearl.” We started off with around thirty people and then by the time we served the soup we had over a hundred people there. They were coming from every direction with their bowl for food and all of their children. We spent time engaging with the families and playing games with the children. Chris Dowd was able to share a message about how Jesus bridged the gap and many prayed to receive Christ for the very first time. It is obvious that God is up to something and we look forward to making a relationship with the pastor in the village and working with them more in the future.
Continue to pray for our team as we spend one final day out on the mission field in Somotillo tomorrow. Pray that God would continue to reveal Himself to the team members as well as the people that we come in contact with. And pray for safety as we travel to Managua on Saturday and then back home on Sunday. Another team will be on their way to continue the work that has been done this week. It will be hard to leave but we leave confident that the Lord is doing amazing things through Because We Care Ministries and it is a wonderful thing to play a small part in what God is doing here.
