We had our graduation last week at Club Esperanza. These little faces are the future of Nicaragua…a country that is hurting right now. The 2018 school year was such a difficult one, but we trust in Jesus and know the future is bright! Thank you for your prayers all year long for these little ones! We are proud of them all!
Every year we hope to have enough presents for all 300 students at Club Esperanza for our end of the year Christmas Party. If you are looking for a way to give this #GivingTuesday a $15 donation would really bless one of our precious kiddos with a Christmas present at our annual Christmas Party! Bless one, bless two, maybe a few….or be like Oprah “Christmas gifts for everyone”! Use the following links to donate…
In all sincerity we would love your help making this Christmas great and we know the Lord loves each one of our little children! Read More
No, that does not mean soap LOL! It is probably one of the funniest mistakes when learning Spanish, when you try to ask for some soap and use the word “sopa” instead….because “Sopa” actually means soup! Just imagine the stares when you ask “I need to wash my hands, do you have any soup I can use?” Hahahaha! 🙂
At Club Esperanza we have an amazing feeding program that feeds nearly 300 people from preschool to the elderly every single day twice a day. (Thank you Orphan Network and Lacrosse the Nations for being incredible consistent partners!)
This past week I happened to be there when we were serving “Sopa”! Look at that soup! This is what I mean by amazing, it isn’t just rice and beans with some water that we serve every day…it is chunks of meat and huge vegetables. A full healthy meal Read More
Chris turned 40 this past weekend! We had a fun time together celebrating and definitely had to blog some pictures of the “Ol’ Man’s” birthday celebration!
We hope you have time today to read our most recent newsletter. You can find it below (of PDF link here Fall Newsletter). God has been doing great things and has kept us safe in the middle of very tumultuous times here in Nicaragua.
Thank you and God Bless from Nicaragua!

We made another delivery of Food Packs, we are well into round 6 and have delivered packs to 220 families! Thank you everyone for your help with this…it has been a huge blessing and a mighty help in a time of need. These packs affect the lives of over 1,300 people and equal nearly 24,000 pound of food….

Nicaragua continues to suffer through the strife of months of civil unrest and deadly protests. In recent weeks protests turned deadly again and a fifteen year old student was killed and multiple people were seriously injured from gunfire. It is incredibly sad and the people are enduring the most difficult time of most of their lifetimes. The threat of a national strike always seems to be rumored, so these food packs will provide food that is needed if the economy takes a down turn. Please keep praying for Nicaragua.
This delivery we made to Tesoros De Dios ministry center. “Treasures of God” is a ministry that serves hundreds of families that have children with disabilities and special needs every day. You may remember our partnership for “Night to Shine” in the Spring Read More
Over the last five months Nicaragua has been going through a crisis that has destroyed the economy, claimed hundreds of lives, and continues to have an ugly face of daily arrests, stories of torture, violence, and protests with little hope in sight for the majority of normal every day Nicaraguans. In the middle of everything there are millions of kids just trying to keep on going. They hear their parents talk and have seen the news reports. The children are having a hard time, in a different way than their parents, but equally as hard.
Nicaragua is still going through a deadly crisis that has claimed over 300 lives in less than four months. Please keep praying for Nicaragua…
This is not a picture of Nicaragua. It is a portrait from American History, but it has given me hope and has led me to pray for Nicaragua in a specific way. We visited D.C. two years ago and the young intern from Marco Rubio’s office gave us a incredible tour of the Capital. We came to the rotunda and he pointed at this giant painting and said “This is when America was born.”
I don’t believe The United States is God’s country, not by any means. But 240 years of democratic elections and a change of power every 4 or 8 years is incredible. It is miraculous. Even more so in light of what we are living through today in Nicaragua.
Back to the painting. The young man certainly caught my attention with that line, Read More
