We know we have been pretty quiet on the Nicaragua front here in the blog lately, so let us change that today…
Quick overview : 2018 was a hard year for Nicaragua. Loss of life, jobs, trust, hope, stability, safety… and those are just simple words that don’t do justice to the state of their country. You can check out our blog from earlier this year if you want to know more.
Let us share what we can…
As much as we would like to tell you everything is good again and things have returned to normal that will not be the case. A new normal (for now) is where they are. At any moment things could go any direction. There is still darkness in this country that is trying to win. Never knowing what to tomorrow will bring is a scary place to live.
Just this week the Government starting having dialog again. Trying to come to some resolution. This time of dialog is so important, but it comes with great intensity throughout the country as people wait to hear what is happening behind those doors. Will there be resolution? Will there be apologies? Will there be more destruction? Will trust be formed again? So many questions and fear of what lies ahead for their home.
Pray with us for this time of dialog. Pray that conversations are had and people are heard. Most importantly that God will move in the hearts of the people in this dialog. We know and believe that God alone can completely shift and change the nations!
Now more than ever people are searching for healing and hope in this place. Now more than ever the news about Jesus and what He has done for us needs to be shared.
The ministries throughout Nicaragua have stood and faced the ugly. We hear day after day about the life change happening throughout Nicaragua and are so grateful we get to have a glimpse of how God is changing lives in the midst of this chaos.
The clinic and church in La Esmeralda has done the same. Although facing the hard times and changes that come along with that they are still being a great light in their communities. Countless patients have continued to be seen at the clinic and many people through the church, clinic, sports ministry have come to know who Jesus Christ is and what He has done for them. This is possible because of your partnership through Fox River. People are finding the source of true hope and healing in the midst of the darkest points of their lives.
Today, is another day that we can say ‘Yes and Amen’ as we fiercely pray for our friends, family and their home.
We are praying healing over Nicaragua!!! Pray with us!
As always, thanks for following along as we do our best to follow God into the world as he has called us! We appreciate you!
