Nicaragua Partnership Update
As many of you know FLRB has had a partnership with Iglesia Roca Eterna in Motastepe, Nicaragua, through Forward Edge International. We began that partnership in 2013, when we sent our first leadership team down. Since then we have sent:
- 3 medical teams
- 1 education team
- 2 youth teams
- 1 construction team (in conjunction with a medical team
Here is a video of one of our Nicaragua trips:
Live, Love and Serve.
These are the words that guide us at FLRB. Our partnership in Nicaragua is centered on this. Our teams have had opportunities to live, love, and serve the people of Motastepe with every trip. We have visited people in their homes and prayed over them, we have worked with public school educators on literacy, we have brought medical treatment and supplies to hundreds of people, we’ve experienced earthquakes and the demolition of Pr. Eliezer’s home, we’ve painted the church and lead Vacation Bible School, and so much more. But, most important we have had opportunities to grow in our faith as we work alongside the people of Nicaragua and build relationships.
We hope to send teams focusing on medical and construction down in the next year. In addition we will also be having a fund raiser to help support the rebuilding of Pr. Eliezer’s house. More information will come out as soon as details are determined. Please keep the Nicaragua ministry and our friends in Motastepe in your prayers. and prayerfully consider making a donation towards supporting our partnership with Forward Edge and the people of Motastepe. If you would like to help you can make a donation through First Lutheran of Richmond Beach, mark your checks or offering envelopes Nicaragua Fund.
