“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
1 Peter 4:10
This summer, we were extremely fortunate to host mission groups from Cincinnati and Atlanta. These groups come to share their talents, their joy and their compassion with children and their families in Nicaragua. It is always so inspiring for us to see how selflessly people come to serve and to build relationships in Nicaragua. It is an excellent opportunity to build bridges of understanding and also to share our common experiences, as children of God.
These were the groups that graced us with their presence, their energy, and their compassion.
Crossroads Church (Cincinnati, Ohio):
A group of 22 educators visited us from Crossroads church and provided a week of training for more than 100 Nicaraguan teachers. They also helped to paint and build a new kitchen at the Edmundo Castellón school.
Stonebridge Church (Atlanta, Georgia):
Thirteen people, adults and children, visited from Stonebridge Church, helping to create a new library and garden space at the 15 de Septiembre school. The murals in the library are simply amazing, divinely inspired!
Montgomery Community Church (Cincinnati, Ohio):
Montgomery Community Church sent a team of 20 to help construct a new kitchen and create a new library at the school in El Carrizo. This group also planned a whole week of amazing games, art projects, and workshops with parents with their friends in El Tule.
Although it was sad to see them go, we are looking forward to working with these mission teams, and many more, next year. If you’re interested in organizing a visit to Nicaragua through your church or school, contact us today!
