After visiting Nicaragua on two separate missions trips, our hearts were burdened for the countless communities in the mountainous regions of Matagalpa, Nicaragua. Many of the cities and towns while bustling with activity, have no Bible preaching church and no Gospel witness.
Our Mission and Purpose is to train national pastors through evangelism and discipleship. National pastors are always better equipped to reach their own people than foreign missionaries. Our burden is to train these national pastors and assist them in the day to day task of starting New Testament churches. It is our belief that every community should have a "lighthouse" in their neighborhood, where they can hear the Gospel, and grow in Christ.
Over 51% of the population of Nicaragua is under the age of 24. Knowing this, we will be working extensively with children's programs, with the hope of reaching the children as well as the parents. The key to reaching the next generation of Nicaraguans is by reaching out to the entire family unit. We will be planning extensive youth outreach activities and programs with the hopes reaching these precious souls for Christ.
Please pray for us and consider us for missions support. The need in Nicaragua is great, and we are anxious to begin this great work as soon as possible. We are partnering with Project 14 to accomplish this work, as they have infrastructure already on the ground in Nicaragua already.
