2015 Mission Trip
I write this letter because our ministry is in need of your help. God has directed our ministry to make plans to travel to Nicaragua in the fall to teach, preach the Gospel (the good news), to feed the hungry and develop jobs for those who are without work. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere with no relief in sight. 27% suffer from undernourishment, 21% have no source for clean water and 43% have no sanitation facilities, and there are 2.5 million who live in extreme poverty. I believe that God has heard their prayers for help and this is why He has placed in our hearts the desire to go. Even though the need is extremely large, we can help make a difference.
There are out lying villages that have not heard about Jesus and as God has commanded us in Mark 16:15 “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Many of the areas that are needed to support a successful mission trip have fallen into place: Places to stay over night, transportation from one village to the next, an interpreter and access to purchase food. Already dates are being set in place for us to preach, as we plan on staying there as long as we can. Small churches in the villages have received notice to expect us and for them to get the word out to as many as possible.
God has great and mighty plans for the future of the people of Nicaragua but He needs people who will be obedient to go. We are excited about the opportunity and we believe we will experience the Mighty Move of God among the people. Salvation, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing and miracles, are His plans for His people.
The only area we lack is Partners to help finance the trip. It will cost over $10,000.00 and God has directed me to seek Partners that will contribute to make this mission possible. God told me that those who donate will receive the same blessing that we will. As God said “Give and it shall be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will God give back to you through the hands of man that you might give again. We can not accomplish this calling without your help. Knowing how well God has blessed each one of us, we need to come together and as a unified group and bring God’s blessings upon those who are struggling. My prayers are for individuals to come to know the saving grace found in Jesus. So please pray about becoming a Partner with us and spread the good news of Jesus Christ.
You can make a one time donation of $5.00 or $25.00 or a $100.00 or sign on to become a monthly giver. We are a 501(c)3 pending program and your giving is tax deductable, knowing all the time, that your seed is being planted in good ground, and will return a harvest to you.
