During the summer, Jessie and I traveled to California to visit churches and family. While we were gone, the youth, headed up by Nayka Barboza (Luz Marina’s daughter), started up the Awana Program for children in our neighborhood. We are so proud to see them get involved in service! Please pray that the Lord will grow the faith of the leaders as well as the faith of the children.

On our return from the states in July we hit the ground running with the CC Old Bridge medical team doing the usual awesome job of healing bodies and souls. Some prayed to accept the Lord and some rededicated their lives to Jesus.

August started with the return of Jeremy Foster with his two oldest children Matt and Emily. They did several soccer outreaches at large local schools as well as a school out in Los Brasiles de Mateare, which is about twenty kilometers from here. Once again, many students and some of the teachers prayed to accept Jesus.

 In early August Michaela Meneghini came down on her own to help at the school and with the youth. She has grown so much and was a huge blessing to many people here at the church and school.

CC Chelmsford sent a team in August that did an amazing job of cleaning and painting the church. They also repainted many of the metal chairs in the sanctuary and many of our regular attenders were very grateful to see the church look better. The team also evangelized and did a VBS.

Carolina Chavez, our school’s principal, is pregnant with her first child. Please pray for her and Lester to enjoy the Lord’s blessings with their baby boy due in November. The timing is fortuitous for the school since Carolina will be able to return at the end of the vacation time in February.

Please pray for the Lord to raise up more leaders in the church, and/or missionaries to come and help out since the needs are huge.

Please pray for Osman and Cindy. Osman has been out of work and is looking for a job.

Please pray for Gustavo Emanuel, Gustavo and Helen’s baby boy who has been in and out of the hospital with pneumonia and/or bronchitis the past week.

Please pray for the Lord to send someone to play an instrument on the worship team.

We are rejoicing in what the Lord is doing in this new year and what He is about to do in the future.

We received a donation of outdoor carpeting for the stage in the sanctuary and the youth worked hard to get that installed in time for the Christmas services.

Jeremy Manus came down in December and has been a huge blessing, helping with many projects around the church and bakery. He and Doug Selby also installed a new main breaker box at the school in record time. PTL! Please pray for Jeremy to learn Spanish so that he can bless others in sharing the faith. 

Gustavo_Enmanuel

We are rejoicing with Gustavo and Helen in the birth of their son, Gustavo Enmanuel, on Sunday January 24th. He is so precious!

We are about to start a new school year and ask for prayer for the school registration. We pray that we can fill the class rooms and bless many families with the gospel and a quality education. Of course we are asking for prayer regarding more sponsors for the students. If you with to sponsor a student, please send an email to: cal4godnica@yahoo.com

Lester

Right now we are in the middle of a lot of painting to freshen up the school. Please pray that we will be able to complete all of this work before school starts.

In July, a team came down from CC Merritt Island to help us out with covering up graffiti on the church and repainting much of the school. It is good to have things looking new again. The team was joined by John Meneghini, his son Noah, and his daughter Michaela. John and his son, as always, helped us a bunch with network and computer issues.

Alysha Rosado came down on her own for a few weeks. She worked with the CCMI team and helped out around the church in many ways. She and Michaela Meneghini stayed for a while after the team left to help out in the school.

They also inspired us to take the youth group on a field trip! Cal and Jessie brought about 20 young people and chaperone’s to Volcano Cerro Negro, one of the youngest volcanoes (and one of the most active) in the western hemisphere. We hiked up the side in some unusually intense wind, many of us carrying sleds to slide down on. It was a wonderful time! Thanks, in part, to our youth leader Rene for helping with the costs.

n August Jeremy Foster and his daughter Emily spent a week helping out with the school and various projects around the church. It was a blessing to Cal to have Jeremy’s companionship for a week that otherwise might have been stressful due to car repairs and other such hassles.

Carolina

A Carolina selfie.  She is a great principal/leader for our school.

 

Saturday night on Sept 26, we held a special prayer and worship service until midnight that was well attended. Cal, Gustavo, and Elvis all shared messages encouraging people to fast, pray, and love each other; and the youth led worship, with the help of Gustavo and Elvis. Jessie helped set up snacks and drinks, including lots of coffee!

 

Traditional

As always our primary school has been active with a day to honor a famous battle in Nicaraguan history on September 14 and a special day to celebrate the 445thyear of the Bible being translated into Spanish on September 24th.
