First of all, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the outpouring of love that you all have shown to our family during this very difficult season. The many lives that have been touched by Because We Care and Donald is simply overwhelming!

As we begin to try to navigate this new world without Donald, I covet your prayers for Because We Care and what God has in store for us next. As Donald wished, I will continue the ministry of BWCM and our commitment to the people of Nicaragua.

Please be in prayer regarding how you can help! If you would like to schedule a mission trip, please reach out to me directly as I am diligently trying to get the calendar updated with our 2023 and 2024 trips. If your church is interested in a guest speaker on missions and to learn more about what God has led us to do in Nicaragua, please let me know!

Again, thank you all for your continued support of our ministry.

Pam Gillette
