It’s hard to believe we are about to return to Nicaragua! And because we are returning, we want you to be part of our mission trip.

Last year’s   team bonded so quickly that before our plane arrived home in Atlanta we committed. We are returning. We are going back to our beautiful friends who live in poverty. We are learning their language.  We will share the love of Christ and worship together. We will bring supplies and money to help the people with their farming skills. Why? Because when you have a skill, you can make money. And money is very scarce in Nicaragua. A peasant farmer can increase his income ten-fold from a day’s income of $1.00 to $10.00. Yes, you read that correctly. Our Nicaraguan families work to make $10.00 a day on the farm. They walk up and down these mountains at Pinas de Pas, laboring to improve their lifestyle.

You can help these families who want to improve their farming skills. No, you don’t have to go and work on the pineapple farm – although it is strikingly beautiful. All you have to do is come to our party. Come and enjoy some food and  the fabulously fun and eye-catching art from the Nicaraguan people. Our own Jan Bilthouse will auction off the pieces that were donated to our team while we were in the markets. Buy one or buy several. All of the proceeds will go toward our goal of improving the farming skills of the pineapple workers.
