Nicaragua Mission Trip - Nov 13-22, 2016


God blessed us with an amazing time of ministry with Jaime & Monica Arista at Campo Gonia Ministries in Nicaragua. I asked Randy Fain, who has been working on water wells since he was 10-years-old, to go with me to meet with some water well drillers.  I prearranged 4 meetings with various organizations that drill wells in the area we'll be working in. Our strategy was a win-win strategy.



​We would​ help them fix any broken equipment, teach ​them ​drilling techniques​, or ​help them with needed ​repairs in exchange for ​the use of​ their rigs, or having them drill a few wells for us.  As ​expected​, each organization we met with... Living Water, Amigos for Christ, Leon Rotary Club, and a few local drilling businesses had challenges ​with their equipment​. Each person we met with was so impressed with Randy's knowledge and experience, and​they were all​ excited about a possible partnership.  This would be a ​tremendous blessing for our​ Reaching the Hungry ministry partners to get water wells drilled at a minimum cost.  One of the organizations needed to learn air power drilling, which Randy happen​s​ to be an expert at, and another organization needed to replace all their hydraulic hose​s, (estimated cost​ $50,000​)​, but Randy could teach them how to make their own hoses saving them $25,000. Plus, when their hoses fail on the job site they would be able to make a new hose in 15 minutes saving them 3-weeks in down time.  Win-win, we teach them how to save time & money, and they drill a well or two for us.



I had the opportunity to teach Campo Gonia's Wednesday Bible study.  Jaime taught at a local church on Sunday morning, and ​than​ we visited a men's rehab ranch.  At the ranch four men accepted Christ and 12 men re-dedicated their lives to Christ.  It was an amazing time of ministry to their men.  We originally went to the ranch to visit George, a man who would be transitioning to Jamie's 9-month discipleship program.  Jaime found George in a very bad state, he was very drunk.  George was willing to go through the rehab program and when we arrived to see him​, Jaime almost didn't recognize George. He'd given control of his life to God, and he was beaming with joy.



The guys are building a pig farm to generate money to fund rehab program for men ...


Two young ladies that were​ part of our RtH Team ​were ​Kelsey and Kadi. They went on a previous RtH mission's trip to Nicaragua and to serve Monica, Jamie's wife. As our trip planning came together we decided to ask the girls to put on a young lady's retreat (for women aged ​13-22 years). ​Kelsey & Kadi​ did an amazing job to bless 15 girls with Bible teaching, dance lessons, crafts, great food, and a beautiful decorative retreat. Please read blogs written by Kelsey and Kadi to learn more from their perspectives.


We did some painting too...

We took about 150 pounds of donations including 10 new Talking Bibles in Spanish.  These Spanish Talking Bibles are the first one with Old Testament and well as New Testament.

"One Fine Day" By Anna & Mary Ann Nunez

As a parents, one of our main goals has always been for our kids to recognize others' needs and to take action. With Pokémon running amok, and media blaring its paradoxical mantra, You are EVERYTHING! You are NOTHING!; it is quite a daunting task.

I am so grateful to Reaching The Hungry for giving our family big and small opportunities for service. We were thrilled to join them for a one-day trip to partner with a church and a lovely pastor in the hills above Ensenada, Mexico.

I wondered what my 12 year old had taken away from such a short trip. In her own words:

One Day Could Change A Life
By Anna Nunez

What could one day do for someone in need? This is a question that might have crossed your mind once or twice. I got a chance to really look at this question close up. On a one-day trip to Mexico with Reaching The Hungry I saw this in a different way. When I arrived, I wasn't thinking of what the people's future would be like, but what their needs were right then. That question still needs an answer though. The answer is:  it can do plenty. It can mean a lot to the parent of the child you entertained so that she could have a minute to rest. Or to the person who listened to you speak about God and decided to invite Him into their life. What about the person you gave medicine to that helped him/her or their family. When you see these people's needs it puts an aching in your heart. You want to help. That is why trips like this are so important. There is so much need in the world that we can't ignore. It only takes a day to make a difference. It says in Matthew 28:19-20 " Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in them in the name of the Father, the son, and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you to the very end of the age." The most amazing part is receiving power from the Holy Spirit. It also says in Acts 1:8 "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." I could feel that power with me wherever I went.       

Wow! She felt an ache in her heart; she felt the power of the Holy Spirit. This mamma wept tears of joy at these words. I agree with Anna's title, One Day Could Change a Life; and it just might be yours.

Don't miss the next Mexico Outreach this December 10th
