Count Your Many Blessings

Count your blessings, name them one by one.

Count your blessings, see what God has done.

Count your blessings, name them one by one.

Count your many blessings see what God has done.

One of the great Old Hymn’s written by Johnson Oatman in 1897 and sung in churches around the world daily.

This time of the year we begin to take a glimpse back to praise GOD for all the many blessings and all that HE has done. Don’t only GIVE THANKS for what HE has done but also give thanks for allowing us to be apart of HIS mighty work. I praise HIS Holy Name for all the missionaries HE brought to Nicaragua, the homes HE built, the food HE provided, the medicine HE provided, the school HE guided, the Nationals that were given an opportunity to learn the WORD of GOD and all the Nationals that ask CHRIST into their hearts. I’ll have to say that 2016 was one for the ages.

In a couple weeks 2016 will be in the history books. We have been praying already for 2017 and where GOD would have us go and do. I’d like to share a few prayer request that you can pray with us and also consider an END OF YEAR CONTRIBUTION.

1. There are two villages we are praying about purchasing land and building a church. Pastor Santos has been working in these villages for a couple years and it’s time to take the next step.

2. The school in Pascuala had an amazing year and finished strong with their first ever graduation. We need sponsors for the children as well as monthly support for the school. We would like to open up a couple more classrooms and hire a couple more teachers.

3. We are also praying about purchasing a lot close to the school in Pascuala and get our agricultural class started there as well as some vocational training.

4. We continue to pray about starting a 4th location for our Pastor/Leadership training. In April of 2017 we will graduate the classes in Choluteca Honduras and Chinandega Nicaragua. Our prayer is to start back in May with young men and women that are surrendering to the call to full time ministry.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR PAM AND I AS WE BEGIN OUR 17TH YEAR OF THIS AMAZING JOURNEY.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR……

About Nicaragua

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.

Our Ministry

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.
