Booths in Nica–Take 2!

Warm greetings (literally!) from Nicaragua!  It is hard to believe that we have been back here for a month now!  It has been a busy few weeks, settling in, adjusting and getting back into the swing of things once again.  There have been moments of joy, moments of frustration among many other emotions. Through it all, God has been so good to us and as always, continues to be with us as we move through this transition. 

We have some very exciting news to share with you all! Within 24 hours of us arriving to Nicaragua, we received news that our residency had been granted! Talk about impeccable timing and God’s favor and grace upon us!  After several days spent at immigration, we finally received our Nicaraguan ID’s and were granted a one year residency.  Wohoo!!! Thank you to all who have prayed with us regarding this.  We now have to go through the process with Eliana, since she is new to our family. We will be submitting all of her documents in the next week, so please pray that things go smoothly for her.

Mike has been busy getting some projects done at CC Managua and at our home.  One exciting project he has been working on is installing a new sound system at the church.  He’s learning a lot about sound and then teaching a few guys at the church so they can learn as well.  He’s also meeting with the worship team and pouring into them as well as working together with them as they all seek to grow in their talents and skills.

Rocio has been working on organizing the house and trying to establish some routines with the kids.  She’s also praying about some ministry opportunities at church.  Nate and Eliana are doing well.  Nate loves being back in Nicaragua and has enjoyed getting to know all of the children in the neighborhood. The highlight of his day is getting to play outside with all of his friends.  He has also started playing soccer, and so far, he is loving that.  We are praying for what direction to take regarding Nate’s education this coming fall as he begins kindergarten (homeschool or traditional school).  We appreciate your prayers for that as well.  Eliana, who just turned 6 months, is still adjusting to the drastic weather change. She doesn’t really enjoy being sweaty! 🙂 Other than that, she is doing well.

We look forward to what the Lord is going to do as we continue to settle in and move forward in serving His people here.  We wanted to leave you with some prayer requests:

-CC Managua

-Wisdom and guidance in diverse areas of ministry

-Sound and worship ministry

-The country of Nicaragua (many are unemployed and hurting)

-The missions teams that will be visiting us this year

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.  These things I command you, that you love one another. (John 15:16-17)
