Nicaragua: Back In Puerto Cabezas...Con Fabio
It was a great experience and opportunity to serve a God that goes beyond language barriers and cultural differences as we visited the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua where the indigenous Moskito people of the Dakura community live.
This morning was an early morning as we left our most recent home in Dakura to return to Puerto Cabezas where we will continue to partner with Pastor Santiago and nearby communities.
After returning to Puerto Cabezas we showered, slept, and ate lunch ready to head back out for a VBS (Vacation Bible School) in the afternoon at a church that Pastor Santiago previously established and lead. What began as passing out a few pieces of candy to invite kids and families quickly grew to dozens upon dozens. During this time we also welcomed the newest member to our team who is a little smaller and hairier than most of us…he goes by the name of Fabio the monkey. Throughout the VBS we played games, shared the gospel through a bracelet illustration, and passed out candy. The VBS was great opportunity for our team to connect with the community, share the love of Jesus Christ, and present the gospel. For many, it is very likely that this was the very first time they may have heard the gospel and the life offered through Jesus Christ. Closing out the night we spent some time in prayer as a team giving thanks to God, ensuring that he received the glory for what took place over the last few days.
Please continue praying…
That God would be satisfied, glorified, and exemplified by ALL of the work that has already been done and will be done.
For the bibles that were passed out in Dakura that have been translated into the Moskito language…that God would be experienced and served because of those bibles being handed out.
For the Word of God to be alive, flourishing, and fruitful in the lives of those who received a bible and that they too be encouraging and challenging disciples in their community.
For the hundreds of kids we have already had the opportunity to meet that their hearts would be prepared for the Word of God despite the living conditions and daily challenges.
For Pastor Santiago and the ministry he is leading and involved in.
For our team health, safety, and unity.
