Great Things HE Has Done

 

“Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart;

for consider what great things He has done for you.”

1 Samuel 12:24

The Lord has done and continues to do great things for His children.  It is such a privilege that we get to serve our great God!  We continue to see and be amazed by God’s faithfulness toward us as we serve Him here in Nica.

The month of July flew by!  We had our first visitors come this month.  It was so nice, so encouraging and so fun to have friends here for a week.  We got to explore a little bit of Nicaragua with them and they got to do some of our weekly ministry activities with us.  We are so thankful for their time here with us!

We have a testimony to share with you from our Sunday afternoon Bible study.  A young guy named Isaac has been attending the study regularly.  Mike initially met him while walking in the neighborhood with a missions team.  He (Isaac) approached the team because he has an interest in practicing English…so, seeing a bunch of North Americans seemed like a great opportunity to do just that.  But God had greater plans than just practicing English.  Mike told him about the Bible study and he actually showed up!  As they studied the book of Mark, the topic of repentance came up.  After the study, Isaac shared with Mike that he wasn’t ready to repent yet.  He wanted to “fix” his life before coming back to the Lord (he used to go to church some time ago).  Mike explained to him that we do not need to “fix” our lives before coming to the Lord and continued to minister God’s truth about salvation and repentance over the next few weeks.  A few Sundays ago, Isaac did not show up.  His mom told us that he had been beaten and robbed.  The next time we saw Isaac, he talked to Mike for a while and shared with him that God had used this incident to shake him up and to make him realize that what he had been learning was true: he didn’t need to wait any longer to get right with God.  God’s Word does not return void!  This young man recommitted his life to the Lord and we are so excited to see what the Lord will do in and through Isaac!!!  If you think of it, pray for him and his renewed faith and hope in Jesus.

Mike has also been sharing a weekly devotional with the students and staff at Club Esperanza the last few weeks.  It has been a great opportunity to share God’s Word and His love to these precious people.

We’ll wrap it up with that.  Thank you for reading and thank you for praying!  Enjoy the remainder of your summer friends.  WE LOVE YOU!

  2. Wow! Always a blessing to hear from you guys and read of how God is growing you stronger in Him as lights Nicaragua! Glad to hear you will have some time of family visiting you ,God is good!! Amazing story of Issac and how the Lord allowed Him to understand that He is holding out His hand to Isaac for forgiveness,new life,new purpose today!right now! So glad He has responded to the drawing of the Lord to hear and learn more. Isn’t that like us all , we can miss how God is there and get too focused on what we don’t have or think we need ,but no, it’s just Him and ourselves to begin a beautiful thing of beauty in a loving relationship with Him. Talk about a spiritual ” snap out of it” dude! I love you already and I Am for you and want to be now!! Story ,God has given him as a sharing about God used some English speaking people (even then trying to take care of Issac) who love the Lord. I hope you journal down all these stories in an actual paper book for your family to read and share and be inspired by for years to come til Jesus comes to take us home! But for now ,we still get to raise our hands to glorify the awesome powerful loving God who leads us to share in all kinds of ways. May God continue to bless you guys and keep you safe . Give a kiss to your little man! For me ! He is growing up quick! Love in Christ Jesus, Christine

  3. It is such a blessing and it’s so encouraging to read about all the great things happening there in Nicaragua. To see so many who have come together in the name of Jesus is beautiful. The Lord is so good and faithful and I’m reminded of that each time you share with us. Thank you. I will keep you all in my prayers(Isaac included). Its so nice to see your faces (even if it’s just through pictures). I miss you guys tremendously.
