2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. The effects of this year have been compounded and amplified for Nicaraguan youth by the ongoing socio-political crisis in Nicaragua. The Nicavangelists continue to stand up to injustice and look to the love of God. (We are not a political movement)

For the past few months the FAMOUS 5 have been proactively sharing the hope we have in Jesus and taking care of people through the LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR project. This series of interactions with people on the street in Mexico, who are “not welcome” or “unwilling” to be immersed in a church community, has changed who we are. The love of God, after all, is for everyone…

As we return to Nicaragua to plant a church and commence a 365 day per year program for Nicaraguan street kids, we are excited to share the love of God with the people of our communities, for each and every one is special and possesses potential for greatness.

This year we are raising funds to help and bless Nicaraguan youth and their families in our Managua-based training center, in our barrio, at our Street Tricking Schools and street kids across Nicaragua.

Every youngster will receive a gift. Our emphasis is bicycles. Youth love them, they learn a new skill, bike riding is a healthy activity, they are useful for school/work, and I believe bike riding stops youngsters from being sexually abused (They can escape predators on their way to/from school/work).

In addition to the youths’ gifts, each family will receive a food hamper with enough staples (rice/beans) to feed everyone for a month, and with some extras to help make Christmas Day special (Kids used to write and ask for me to take them to America, now I get messages daily requesting food).

In the month of December, when school lets out, we will host our Day Camp, culminating in the Trucos Caos Maestro Reunion (Tricking Chaos Master Gathering), a Trip to the Beach (With family), a Trip to the Cinema (With family) and a Christmas Party for Mum’s and their Kids.

Nicaraguan youth who attend our programs are excited for Christmas because of what we are able to help and bless them with, not only with gifts and assistance, but because we invest our time and walk alongside, together believing for a bright future!

If ever we’ve needed you, we need you now… thank you for donating & thank you for believing in the hearts and lives of Nicaraguan youth!
