Nicaragua Mission
Liaison: Jose Soto

Dear Members and Friends,

Every year, our sister church, John Knox Presbyterian Church, commissions a team to Esteli, Nicaragua to share God's ministry, mission, and love to the people.

Last year, I joined the mission team, my first mission trip ever attempted. My experience was amazing -in many ways! I had the opportunity to do construction and remodeling work at Shalom Presbyterian Church (the first Presbyterian church established in Nicaragua). But, my main role was serving as a translator between our mission team and those we met in Nicaragua. It was an honor to connect everyone involved in this mission through our conversations.

I continue to feel drawn back to the ministry and work of this effort and therefore I will be joining the team again this summer. However, due to the political unrest occurring there, it has come to the decision for the safety of all of us, not to travel down to Esteli, Nicaragua this summer.

My request to you is to keep our sisters and brothers from Nicaragua in your prayers for safety, justice, unity, and peace.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Peace and Blessings,

Jose
