Pascuala School

Just wanted to do a follow up to the letter that I sent out yesterday. The student support is still $250.00 per year not month. We have learned that the administration of the school is really a hand full. Please forgive us for a lack of follow up and information to those that have sponsored our students. If you have sponsored a student in the past and would like to continue please contact us and will get the up dated info to you as soon as the children return to school. We are also seeking an individual to HELP us with the administrative part of the program in the future.

Thank you and Be Blessed, Donald

PS…If you want to renew just send us an e-mail and we’ll make it happen. THANK YOU

Pascuala School

Good morning and blessings…..I’m writing to you this morning concerning BWCM’s need for Pascuala school support. Since you have helped in the past we wanted to make our needs known. We will be adding an 8th teacher in 2017 so that we can reduce the size of some classes. We are continuing to seek student sponsorship ($250) per month but have to seek TEACHER support as well. We are expecting to enroll 56 students in elementary and more than 100 in High School for 2017 which begins in early February The student sponsorship will only cover uniforms, food and supplies. Attached is a letter (translated) that I received last week outlining the budget for 2017.

We are seeking churches and individuals willing to take on 1 or more months of sponsorship. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYER, PARTNERSHIP AND SUPPORT.

Philippians 4:19
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Paul wrote a very specific THANK YOU letter to the church to give thanks for their support of him. Pam and I want to specifically thank you for your prayers and support.

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……

Relief for First Responders – Gatlinburg TN

For whom so much is given the same is much required….when I awoke this morning my home town, Gatlinburg Tn literally was on fire. The home/motel that I was raised in, we are not sure if its even still standing. In talking to my sister and Aunt from Gatlinburg, our family is all evacuated and safe. I have been watching TV stations from Knoxville, and understand this fire is huge and effects thousands of people. Tomorrow beginning at noon I will have a truck located at the Seventh Day Adventist Church on 460 east Bonsack area collecting supplies to support the First Responders that are fighting this great tragedy. The TV station requested the following items for the First Responders: Gatorade, protein bars, hight calorie candy and candy bars, work gloves, Chapstick, sanitized wipes, nonperishable snack items.

Please lift these First Responders up in prayer as the majority of them have been fighting fires in other areas for days!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

Psalm 136:1

What is LOVE…..Love can only be understood from the actions it prompts. When we bear with the failings and weaknesses of others, divine love reveals itself (Ephesians 4:2). At all costs, this love compels us to give so that we alleviate the suffering of others. Instead of seeking to fulfill our emotional and physical needs (receiving), we humbly give of ourselves (1 Peter 3:8–9).

Please pray about helping us during this season. For a donation of $10.00 you can feed a family of six for 1 week. You can donate on our web site (BWCM.org) our you can mail checks to BWCM, PO Box 14132 Roanoke, Va. 24038

1 Corinthians 12:27

27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

Once we receive Christ as our personnel savior we become part of the Family of Faith. All through Jesus life on earth he demonstrated to all how we should live. He taught about how we should treat others and care for others. I’m calling on the Family of Faith to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Each year at this time we do a food drive called, "Manna Fest." With a $10 donation we will purchase a bag of groceries that will feed a family of 6 for a week. Please go to our web site and donate or mail checks to BWCM, PO Box 14132 Roanoke, VA. 24038

  • “What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Augustine

Libertad Concert

Blessings from Somotillo, Nicaragua……. I wanted to give you a heads up on an event that is going to take place by the Latino worship team from Liberty U that served with BWCM here in Somotillo last year. They are doing a concert at FBC Roanoke on Oct. 9th at 6pm. Libertad is partnering with BWCM to promote "Manna Fest" through their concerts and love offering during the months of Oct. and Nov. I would greatly appreciate it if you would get the word our to your church family and friends. I would also like to extend a personnel invitation to all the "Family of Faith" in the Roanoke area. So very excited by what God is doing through Libertad, Dr Gary Mathena, Dr Leon Neto and Because We Care Ministry.

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.
