This ABC is L for love! Love is so important! If we do things without love for one another, then what is the good in doing it? Love Loud Nicaragua is my topic for this month's post.
Izzy and I have prayed about it and we have decided to go to Nicaragua on a mission trip in February. The country of Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the western hemisphere(behind Haiti). Most people there live on less than $2 a day! Most of us drink coffee that is more expensive than that. We are going with a team to minister to those in need. We will serving food to those living in a garbage dump(see above pic). We will be having backyard Bible clubs and helping to refurbish a school there. They asked for bookshelves and Christian books to put on those shelves. I cannot wait to go.
When God called me, I was like BUT God....we don't have the money. We are recovering from being un and underemployed for 5 years. We need to do this and to do that, first. God said, "Trust Me. I have called you and I will equip you." Yes, Lord! Here am I, send me! I want to have a willing heart to serve these people that most Americans know little of. The American church is not present in a big way down there. We want to bring hope to a nation that has very little hope.
All that said to say, we need YOU! "Why?," you might ask!
1st Pray Pray Pray! We need prayer! Where light is to be shown, the darkness doesn't like to be exposed. Safety in travel. Passports to be gotten. Money to be raised!
2nd Donations. We are taking tax deductible donations that may be donated to

There are several fundraisers. I will be rolling out those in the next couple of days.

Another opportunity is for you to buy a Christmas tree from us. We are getting them from a Jackson County man and they will be delivered on Monday 11/25 from 4-8. There are 4 sizes and 4 prices for these beautiful Fraser Fir trees5-6 Ft $35 6-7 Ft $40 7-8 Ft $46 8-9 Ft $55

Thank you for Loving Loud for Nicaragua!
