Nica Time

"Nica Time" ------- everything starts late, and your whining can't change it.
First thing a Missionary learns, be flexible.  Come, let's check out God's timing.

Diriamba Clock Tower
 North American Missionaries, Ken and Glennas Brassfield, did a two day Pastor's Evangelism Training in Matagalpa.  Twenty six Pastor's gathered from near and far to experience sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in their villages and to see growth in their churches.  On completion of training, the Pastor's went out into the community, putting into action the knowledge God had brought them.  Two lives were changed for eternity as they accepted Jesus Christ as Savior.
Hard to believe, the 28th of February, marks one month since arriving in Nicaragua.
Even more difficult to realize is that moving day is almost here, Diriamba is finally in sight.  Karl Brassfield and Josh Moudy moved some of the appliances and furnishings into la casa.  I was able to do some of the painting and clean up work, it still needs more.  Fingers crossed, maybe I will be able to move in this weekend.
Yesterday, we were able to purchase a bed in a little town called Masatepe.  However, when we arrived in Diriamba, we didn't have the same number of bed parts we started out with.  The search was now on for the missing bed part.  No luck, the back tracking we did was in vain. 
Pastor Steve, at First Baptist Church Manteca, had a saying, "The person who reaped what I lost (bed parts and more money) must have needed it more than me".  So, with that said, the carpenter in Masatepe will have a new bed part ready by Tuesday.
During my quiet time this morning, as I was unloading my heart full of questions on the Lord, He revealed His answer in the Word; "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10

Emmanuel Home of Protection Worship Service
Monday, while several of us worked in the la casa, Karl, was at Emmanuel Home leading one of our new girls to Jesus Christ.  Sunday she said, had been her first time in a worship service and I want to know Jesus and be baptized.  I hope to share baptism photos with you soon..
Rejoice in the Lord, again I say Rejoice.
Special prayer request:
1.  I begin Language class next week, I need a strong mind and a good ear. 

2.  Nicaragua Family Ministries (DHS) requesting us to open a second home for girls.  Seeking God's will and financial provision.

3.  Mission Teams arriving soon, pray for good health, safe travel and saved souls.

4.  In need of transportation, God's will and provision.

5.  Fighting a good fight against Montezuma revenge, could use additional prayer for continued healing.
 6. Urgent need for clothing for Emmanuel Home of Protection children.  We have learned we can purchase bales of clothing shipped from the United States for $100 per bale of any one type of garment.  Pray for provision of funds.
To all my partner's in this ministry and to those who are being led to become partner's, Thank you and God bless your sacrificial giving and prayers.  Your continued donations are at work in Nicaragua.
Thank you Bowlegs Church, Oklahoma for your response to the children's needs of undergarments and you willingness to help further God's ministry.
Hear my prayer O Lord for the followers of this blog;
Father, anoint your children with wisdom and revelation so they know you better.  Send revival Almighty God, let it begin in these Ministry Partner's hearts. Set them on Spiritual fire, rekindle their bones, restore them, refresh them with the passionate first love they had for you.  Let their desire for you burn deep and satisfaction come only from serving you and loving others.
I am so blessed to have a relationship with each and everyone of you as we minister together for the Glory of God.  Should anyone following this blog desire to join us as a Ministry Partner, please note, it is easy to do online and is tax deductible, just use the donation tab at the bottom of this blog site or go to Missionary donation for Landa Carnes. 
We are called to serve.
What a marvelous journey Jesus has lead us on so far...this journey will continue.
