2018 Nicaragua Missions
One of our six G’s at FIRST is Going. it is our prayer that every person will be involved in some manner of “going” to serve others who need the love of Jesus, either locally or internationally. As part of our missions discipleship strategy, we are partnering with Project H.O.P.E. to send two teams to serve in Nicaragua this year. Will you pray about going?
There is nothing quite like the experience of being God’s hands and feet to people in a third world culture who, in many cases, have little to nothing. During our time in Nicaragua, we have the opportunity to come alongside these impoverished people and help meet both physical and spiritual needs.
Teams are open to any adult, male or female, who is in good physical condition and is willing to step out of their comfort zone and simply be a tool that God can use. Although we build homes as a major part of this trip, prior construction experience or skills is not a requirement. In addition to building homes, team members will also help provide meals, assist with medical care, minister to cancer patients and prison inmates, lead VBS for children, and most importantly build relationships with these people – so that we might share with them how Jesus can bring them eternal hope. There are things that everyone on the team can do, regardless of skill level. If you can show love to people, you can participate. Be prepared… It may just change your life!
