We’re celebrating 10 years of ministry, and you’ve helped make it happen!
It takes a surprising amount of invisible, behind-the-scenes work and support to make visible ministry happen. What is visible on any given day is a group of kids or youth spending a few hours with leaders who teach the Bible lesson, counsel, or help with homework.
But behind the scenes are the countless people who pray for God to work, people who encourage leaders, who provide training, who donate weeks of their income, who get others involved, who volunteer hours or days of their time, who share wisdom or expertise, and who manage details so that things run smoothly.
Whether you’ve given 10 minutes or 10 years to brightening the earthly and eternal future for Nicaraguan kids and youth, you are a valuable partner with us in ministry! We thank you, and we praise God for the mysterious way that he interweaves the stories and efforts of many into one common goal: that His name be known and glorified.
We’re not a huge organization, and working for 10 years doesn’t make us great—but it does paint a picture of God’s greatness. We want to pause at this milestone to recognize His faithfulness and to thank you for helping pave the road this far.

We’re thanking a few hundred people by name on a Facebook post. This is a small fraction of those that have contributed, but time, privacy, and anonymity prevent us from listing everybody publicly.
We’re bringing out some very old pictures and videos for your viewing and reminiscing pleasure.
Here’s the video we sent our founding church from the very first kids’ service (it’s not the same as the video above):
And here’s a good one from Dan Quigley about kids who grow up in the Oriental Market area:
