Casares Fishing Village

"Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst."
John 4:13-14

COME...our Nicaragua missionary journey continues.

Emmanuel Home water tank 
 One rewarding experience I want to share with you is our new water tank.  A nearby community does not have access to water.  The people who live there must carry water for a great distance over a rough terrain.  God has made a way for Emmanuel Home to deliver fresh water two days a week, two times each day. 
Bring your buckets

enough water for all
By the grace of God life has been made a little bit easier for some precious people.  Our first day of water delivery was extremely hot and exhausting.  As we filled the last fifty gallon drum with the last drop of water in the tank, we let out a heavy sigh, when suddenly the bottom burst out of the drum and we were ankle deep in muddy water.  You had to laugh to keep from crying.  The lesson learned here; check the drum before filling.

serving good food

Praying for the sick
         Our outreach for feeding the elderly has grown    to twelve committed
 young ladies in our Bible study group.

loving the people

I thank God for the spiritual changes in the life of each one of these young ladies, for their love and compassion they have for the people.  The joy they bring when sharing the love of Christ is a awesome sight to behold. The girls work very hard preparing meals to feed the elderly homeless and without fear or embarrassment they also serve spiritual food and comfort. Seven souls were prayed with this God be the glory.

The welcome sign and scripture for the "Story Room" wall is complete.  Classes are going very well with Bible devotion, crafts and music.  Also included in our three day weekly curriculum is English.  I get so tickled when my students come running up to me to remind me we have class today at three, yes?  They are all smiles, YES!

street children
life of fishing in Casares
never been to school
I have met many children on the streets of Diriamba, and the surrounding fishing communities.  These children have never been given the opportunity to go to school, will most likely never attend an educational facility.  How my heart aches  for them, their lives destined to be beggars on the streets, God only knows what else they will endure. Just one of the reasons our ministry is needed here.

This month through your financial partnership we purchased food and clothing for a family that was  in urgent need.
 We also were able to purchase
needed school materials for the Canaan Christian
school nearby.
Lastly, I had the opportunity to purchase some used tires to help a man earn a living to support his family. 
Called by God, we are on this missionary journey together.  Every time I think of your partnership it brings joy to my heart, for without you, I would not be the missionary God placed in Diriamba, Nicaragua to spread his good news to people hungry for a change in their life.
Together, we see children rescued from horrific abuse, the hungry and sick fed and comforted, lives changed for the better with opportunity, but most importantly the salvation and promise of life eternal through Jesus Christ is given to them freely.

Praying for each of you, our journey will continue...
