Here we are approaching the end of February and today I realized we never blogged about the first day of school! There was so much anticipation and we had all of the rushing around getting things ready, purchasing desks, all the “little projects“, etc etc… Today I was looking back at my phone and found this fun picture from the first day of school! We did do a Facebook Live video the first day which you can view by clicking here on The Facebook…
What better way to share about the first day of school than to do it in pictures! We were down at the club with our families on the first day to celebrate all of the fun. Thank you to Kristen Ohran for capturing so many awesome moments with all of the cute kiddos! It was a day of excitement and of course a few crying preschoolers being dropped off for the first time… Read More
We want to introduce you to Samael and Elery. As this year started we had a visitor come to the gate asking to speak with Don Michael (Krista’s dad). It was a mother asking for help. She was desperate and was not able to care for her two sons anymore. The situation in Nicaragua has made life impossible for her. She could not even feed her boys and she asked if there was any way that we could take them. It is incredibly sad that this type of situation even exists, but we know the Lord has Casa Robles in existence for these types of moments. So, Mr. B met with her down by the gate, prayed with her and told her about Casa Robles. The next week they met with Mama Angelica and Papa Yuri and we felt the Lord giving the green light. These boys needed a refuge, right now.
Angelica and Yuri made the trip two hours North to a very rural town called Chongo and came back with Samael and Elery. Their living condition was very Read More
Thank you to everyone who helped us buy the desks for this year…it was awesome to have all your help! School starts next Monday…we do still have other needs at the school, if you are interested in helping click here to see the list.
We were able to buy all the desks needed for the Third grade classroom plus some extra smaller desks for our First and Second grade classes that have had such a high demand that we made room for more students (our teachers don’t like to say no!).
We appreciate your prayers for Club Esperanza Read More
This year we are opening another level of Elementary school! Last year, many people helped us buy 2nd Grade desks, this year would you help us buy desks for the new 3rd Grade classroom? We need 35 desks in total. We are excited for the school year and to be able to offer another classroom for the families in our neighborhood. The classroom is almost fully remodeled, and now it is time to buy desks. As you can see in the video I took the kiddos to find out if they had enough desks at the metal shop…they did!
Each desk is $31 (I was wrong when I said $33 in the video)… Maybe you can buy one this year…or maybe buy two….or buy ten 🙂 We love your all’s support!
School starts in two week…Praise Jesus!

We had a group of guys down from Pennsylvania last week and they spent the weekend out at Ruby Ranch. Our really good friend Scott brought down his friends from a Mountain biking club and he teamed with Brinson to put together an awesome race for kids at Ruby Ranch. It was an awesome couple of days!
The kids had a great time, as you can imagine. The trail was really really tough. A three mile loop Read More
The 2019 school year is almost upon us, can you believe it? (In Nicaragua the new school year starts in February) During the month of January we will be getting everything ready to receive all of our students from last year and some new students as well, nearly 300 in total. I went to Club Esperanza last week with the plan to dream about the future, ways to use the new land, getting new building built, etc… There are so many big things to dream about! But you know what comes first…”the little projects”…there are many things that need to be done to make the school great for our students THIS YEAR.
So this January we are going to do as much as we can. We are starting with demolition of walls Read More
We hope that you and your family have a wonderful and blessed New Year!
This is our prayer card that we mailed out this year and we hope it gets on lots of our friends and families refrigerators 🙂 We really do love and appreciate the support for our family as missionaries here in Nicaragua and to know that hundreds of people who love us are praying for us is the greatest encouragement we could ask for! Amen.
