Prayer Needs

We Covet your prayers in these areas of our ministry!


Pray for the great needs and ministries that are before us in Nicaragua. Pray also about what God would have you do! The following are a few of the pressing needs of BWCM.

Current Prayer Needs

  • Direction for Living Water Ministry, if we should take over and continue to build relations in the villages that have wells but no churches.
  • Directions for the Pastor’s training as well as teachers to step up to help.
  • More churches to get involved and schedule trips
  • Funding for Pam and I as we are both now full time with BWCM

Ongoing Prayer Needs

Church Construction

There are a number of churches in various stages of construction. Some are already being used, others are yet to be built. Pray for the volunteers and funding needed to help us with the different phases and projects before us in northern Nicaragua.

Leadership Training

Several times a year we pray for American pastors and teachers to commit themselves to a week of intense basic training for the pastors, their wives, and leaders in the north of Nicaragua. Topics are always carefully selected in order to meet the unique needs faced by the Nicaraguans as they seek to grow and share their faith. Additional preaching/teaching opportunities are always there during the evenings in local churches and early in the mornings in surrounding villages.

Mission Teams

All of the work we do in Nicaragua is done through the sacrificial help of volunteers who pay their own way. We are constantly seeking out believers who will respond to the Macedonian call to serve in Central America. Please pray that future partners will step forward to join us throughout the coming years.



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.
