“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”-- Isaiah 43:19

It doesn’t look like much. Just another soggy field in a poor, muddy, inconsequential village in the middle of nowhere. Cattle saunter through switching their tails and gnawing on stubble, unaware that their grazing land will soon become a construction site. As we survey the field, however, we see fleeting images of what this place might become.

It is a vision of potential, promise and hope for the remote, Nicaraguan communities that lie far upriver in the jungles of Nicaragua’s wilderness. We imagine pastors gathering for training, farmers meeting to solve problems, a nurse caring for a sick child or an outreach team boarding a boat to serve in a village. May the facility we are building be a key to community
transformation and a part of God’s blessing for these remote villages!

“The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them." Isaiah 41:17

It is only morning, but the fierce sun is already baking the coppery clay and scorching the dry stubble in the field where the new well stands. The wheel on the pump squeaks as it turns and a woman holds her hands under the spout... waiting. Suddenly, with a gurgle and a gush, cool, clean water cascades over her palms and through her fingers, and a timid smile crosses her lips.

Quietly, modestly, clean drinking water has arrived in the remote jungle community of Kansas City, Nicaragua. Although there is little fanfare, it is a moment of profound significance as our well-drilling team and a gathering of villagers fix their attention on the water, drawn from 100 feet beneath our feet, spilling out onto the concrete base of the well.

Building Bridges

“But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind, and you will be blessed” -- Luke 14:13 She makes her way along the wobbly, six-inch wide beam with her toddler clinging to her waist and glances down at the muddy stream flowing 15 feet below. She steps off the beam and onto a dilapidated bridge, which creaks and shifts under her weight.

She is one of the world’s “invisible” people and this precarious trek into town is one of the countless challenges that make her life a daily struggle for survival in the remote Miskito Coast wilderness. Although the poorest of the poor and the least among the least in Nicaragua, she is not forgotten, for Christ cares deeply for her and her disenfranchised and sometimes desperate neighbors.
