SOMEWHERE IN NICARAGUA...
We have some specific areas God has led us to and where we have existing connections and relationships.
However, we sold everything we own in Canada to follow the calling God laid on our hearts to purchase a property and run this ministry. We want to ensure we are welcoming God’s wisdom and leading once living in county.
Our first few months in Nicaragua will be spent renting homes in various areas, perfecting our spanish, and learning more about the culture while we wait for the Lord to open up the door to the perfect location.
Some of the questions we are considering while we make the final decision.
- Proximity to the local churches we will be partnering with
- needs of the communities
- facilities to host teams
- proximity to the airport
- facilities to host our camps and programs
- a home for our family of 5
- does the location already have a strong mission organization in place or nearby?
When we went on our vision trip, we quickly learned the needs are so great and that no matter what, churches, organizations and individuals need help. We didn’t want to come in with “our solutions” but rather be vessels to allow God to work through us in whatever capacity He wants.
We were encouraged by other missionaries to focus on our giftings and talents and present the vision God has laid on our hearts. Which is what we are doing and we are excited for God to seal up all the details. Location being a big detail!
Our first inclination is to be somewhere along the Pacific side of the country, possibly close to the city of León. We know we will end up in a rural area over a city, but not exactly sure where God will have us settle.
God’s big adventure for us awaits and we are excited to see where He will specifically lead.
Please be in prayer over our family as we make the decision where to purchase the property.
