Manna Fest

Deuteronomy 15:7 ESV

“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother.

Last week our mission team handed out 200 “Manna Fest” bags. These bags should feed 1200 people for a week. There more than 30,000 men, women and children in the Somotillo Nicaragua area, so we have a lot to do to bless all these families.

Will you please continue to pray for God’s provisions and how you might help. You can donate through our web site, (bwcm.org) or mail donations to BWCM, PO Box 14132, Roanoke, VA. 24038

Manna Fest

Philippians 2:3-4 ESV
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Good morning and blessings….Today I’m asking you to count others more significant than yourselves. This week our team will deliver 200 “Manna Fest” bags that will supply each family that receives them food for a week. There is more than 37,000 people in the Somotillo area. As you can see we have a long way to go to supply every family. Please pray about how you might help.

Manna Fest 2012

Luke 14:12-14 ESV / 7

He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

This morning as I sit at my desk watching the sunrise, I’m truly blown away at the GREATNESS OF ALMIGHTY GOD. I would be
INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST if I didn’t say the past 19 months have been a bit of a struggle as it has been for many. I think about how weak my flesh really is but at the same time I know that God is in control. I tell our mission teams that it’s extremely important that we be flexible and allow God to lead and guide. I have to admit that sometimes I think God needs my help.

Today we kick off our 2021 “Manna Fest” campaign. I praise God for HIS provisions that have allowed BWCM to provide food to villages and schools in the Somotillo area. Now we would like to “LOVE DEEPER” by providing Manna bags to families. Each $10.00 bag will feed a family of 6 for a week. In the past we have used these bags at Christmas to go door-to-door and share the Gospel. This year we will distribute them as soon as we have the resources. Once we have received $1000.00 we will assemble 100 Manna Fest bags and start the distribution. Please pray for God’s guidance.

John 13:34-35 ESV / 5
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

lessings and Merry Christmas to all!

This month, Pamela and I will begin our 21st year serving in Nicaragua. Every day, month and year has truly been an adventure, but I’m comfortable saying that 2020 has been the biggest challenge yet!

When we began this journey, we truly had no idea how to start a mission organization or how to carry out the will of God for this ministry. What we DID know was that God is always on the throne and in control. We began what was and still is truly a FAITH journey that has found our Heavenly Father always to be sovereign and faithful.

This year we returned from Nicaragua in early March and have not been able to return. I praise God for our Nicaragua team that has carried on the work of the ministry. I praise God for our partners that have been so FAITHFUL IN THEIR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT. I feel certain that each of us wake each morning wondering when things will get back to “normal”. No matter what, Pam and I, as well as our team, will continue to pray daily and seek God’s will for BWCM.

On December 18th, Pastor Diomedes will lead a group of pastors from the Somotillo area to the Atlantic Coast area. As most of you know, this area was hit with two hurricanes in a three-week period. This team will be taking relief supplies, and more importantly, THE GOSPEL. Please pray for this team as it will truly be the first time on mission for most of these men.

As 2020 draws to a close, I imagine many are rejoicing. At this time, please consider an END-OF-YEAR GIFT. Because we are unable to get teams to Nicaragua, we need your HELP MORE THAN EVER. Please pray about supporting BWCM with your end of the year contribution.

RELIEF

Acts 20:35 ESV

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.

In just a few more weeks 2020 will come to an end. How will this year end for you and what does that look like for you? Over the past couple of weeks we have been celebrating our THANKFULNESS AND BLESSING. In the next few weeks we will be celebrating the BIRTH of our LORD. With that being said I’m truly thankful for the FINISHED WORK OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS AND THE MANY BLESSING I HAVE RECEIVED. I pray that reading this will stir you to recall your many blessings and think about how YOU can bless others.
Tomorrow morning our team will be heading to the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua with several truck loads of food, medical supplies and clothing. We need help to fill these trucks with the needed supplies. The rest of our team will be serving the villages in and around the Somotillo area where many were flooded because to the 2 hurricanes. The flooding resulted in most villages losing their crops. BWCM will continue the distribution of much needed food and possibly medical.

PLEASE PRAY ABOUT HOW YOU CAN HELP AND PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR OUR NICARAGUA TEAM. YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE THROUGH OUR WEB SITE (BWCM.ORG) OR MAIL GIFTS TO…. BWCM. PO BOX 14132 ROANOKE VA. 24038

Feeding/Relief

Luke 3:11 – He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise. Blessings…..Since mid March our Nicaragua team has been distributing food in villages throughout the Chinandega Dept. I praise God for HIS provisions that made this possible along with our many partners. Now we have to add in hurricane relief as Nicaragua was hit with 2 hurricanes in a 3 week period. Airlines have once again pushed back and will not return to Nicaragua until January. With no airlines flying that translates to no MISSION TEAMS. I’m asking you today “THANKSGIVING” to pray about supporting our “Feeding/Relief Program”.

Feeding Program/Manna Fest

“And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” – Isaiah 58:10

Yesterday was “feed the children” day in Nicaragua. We are blessed to be able to provide food every day at the school in Pascuala. Yesterday the children were given a VERY SPECIAL BLESSING.

Over the past couple months many of you have helped BWCM with our daily feeding program/Manna Fest and we are very thankful for your prayers and support. The need continues and we are asking you to pray that needs are met. Please go to our web site (BWCM.ORG) and donate or mail support to BWCM, PO Box 14132 Roanoke, VA. 24038.

BE BLESSED AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT….IHS. DONALD AND PAMELA

Manna Fest

But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

In many ways this picture is being painted all over the world. Our team in Nicaragua has over the past 7 months truly been, “The one that had mercy.”
Our many partners have provided both prayers and financial support these past 7 months to keep the hands and feet of Jesus moving. With that being
said we are seeing the lines in the villages continue to grow longer and longer. The lines are growing because of a factor that many of us know nothing about……HUNGER.
Every weekday over the past months our team has been in the villages being the HANDS and FEET of Jesus that has been possible by your prayers and support.
Would you PLEASE pray about helping? You can help by going to our website (bwcm.org) and donate or mail support to BWCM, PO Box 14132 Roanoke Va. 24038.
