2021 has been a challenging year for Nicaraguan youth. The negative economic and social impacts of the ongoing socio-political crisis in Nicaragua and the COVID pandemic have left young Nicaraguans with few opportunities, void of hope and with a bleak future. Enter the love of God!
“God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble, more than enough and always available whenever I need you.” Psalm 46:1
This year the FAMOUS 5 returned to Nicaragua after a somewhat tumultuous 2020 in the wake of the COVID pandemic, where we found ourselves trapped in Mexico for the better half of the year.
Once back in Nicaragua, our Mexican Mixhel Fox, took leadership of our now 5 Street Tricking Schools ( staff and 100 kids enrolled) in and around Managua.
Eliezer took over the leadership of The Nicavangelists from Jonny, basically starting from scratch, and even took on some of my responsibilities too.
Lorenzy-Ella, has been faithful in her university studies, in addition to leading our singing practices, memorization of the Bible, English classes and liaising with our community.
We added a house mum, Marbelly (A mother of kids who went to our pre-school), who has been a God-send for our testosterone drenched home.
Eduardo was married, and both he and his darling wife (Julissa) support Eliezer and Mixhel, and they are basically in charge of our home.
Shamyr continues as director of our center, managing some of our people, the property, completing the many administration tasks necessary to keep moving forward and ensuring our security.
Last year we added Pastor Dan from New Jersey as our daily Bible teacher, and I have to say that he has honestly been more committed than any of us, even visiting several times this year and with plans to also visit quarterly next year.
Now living with us are Bryan (We were his foster parents 10 years ago) and his wife, and their baby, plus we’ve 2 AMAZING Creole orphans from Bluefields (10 year old Akon and 14 year old Darriel, with plans to add another in February), and the rest of our Mestizo crew too (All orphaned, fatherless, etc).
I know this is starting to sound like a newsletter, but what I am trying to share is that we’re a growing community (Different from the past where we had only 15-20 youths in our program… We are not after mega, we are after hearts), deeply committed to the transformation of a nation, a bright future for each and every one as we look to the love of God…
The love of God… “For here is the way God loved the world — he gave his only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.” John 3:16
The best gift we can give Nicaragua is the love of God, through Jesus. This is our goal, every minute of every day… At Christmas time one of our expressions of love is to give those in need a burst of brightness through a Christmas gift. We have always targeted the poor in our communities, and have given food, clothing, household items, shoes and of course, bicycles…
This Christmas we seek to help The Nicavangelists and their families, and communities, with gifts of soccer balls, food, shoes, bicycles and have 3 house construction projects for the families of Marbelly, Bryan and Akon (Bluefields). Each of these families are DESPERARATELY in need, and I will share more throughout November and December.
