Commonway in Nicaragua
Day 3 – The FH Team
We spent some time this morning at the local FH office. When we first came a year-and-a-half ago, they had a staff of 10 or 12. Today they have close to 30 folks (all from this part of Nicaragua) working in various roles. At least seven are devoted solely to the child sponsorship program. As a whole, this team is dedicated to the people of Caulatú and the surrounding areas. They have a deep passion to see God at work, bringing physical and spiritual transformation. It’s tough work. There are setbacks. They deal with resistance and indifference. Even though there is a rich history of Christianity here, there’s a deep poverty of body and spirit.
As the partnering church, our role is to, first and foremost, pray. God has knit our hearts together in way that can only be described as supernatural. So even if you have not had the chance to visit yet, your prayers are vital. In particular, pray for this FH team, that God would give them strength and sustain them, that He would give them wisdom. And pray, too, for miracles. For sure, the need for physical healing is great, so pray for those needs. Even more so, pray for the miracle of salvation, that God would capture the hearts of men, women, and children.
