No two weeks of ministry are the same. Last week with the medical team was fast paced. Our days were filled with travel, seeing patients, leaving early, and coming home late. This week with the construction team we are spending more time at the house making filters and washing mediate that will filter the water for the village of Los Loma del Nance. Today we delivered filters to the site and tomorrow we will take more and begin to install them in each home.
Additionally over of the last two days we have been researching a solution for the community’s water shortage. Currently the community receives water for 3 hours every 8 days. We met with the head of the water authority for the five communities of Los Loma del Nance, Los Carbonales, La Sevadilla, El Mojon, and Los Sarsales. Their greatest need is to replace the substation pump that lifts the water from the well to the distribution tank on the mountain in Los Carbonales. They have met with an engineer who has told them the pump is not repairable and needs replacing. They are continuing to operate on borrowed time since the pump is several years beyond its useful life. Pray for us as we seek to help the communities with a solution to these issues.
We will be meeting with Marciel this week as well to encourage him as he leads the beginnings of a new faith community in Los Loma del Nance. Marciel came to us a year ago during the medical clinic to ask for help in establishing an evangelical church in Los Loma. Pray that God will identify addition men and women who will step up to help lead in establishing this work.

Pray for us, Give to support us as we go, and go with us as we join God in His redemptive plan for the people here in Nicaragua.
“Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
You come to the help of those who gladly do right,
who remember your ways…”
