Winter News 2014 from Calvary Chapel Managua, Nicarugua

 

In September we had a great team from CC San Juan Capistrano in California. They took

on the huge project of removing the mineral stains and re-coating our rock wall in the sanctuary. It now looks better than new.

We also took a trip up to San Juan de Limay to minister to the people of the Calvary Chapel in that town. It was a blessing to reconnect with those wonderful people.

We were able to evangelize to the dump people in Barrio Guadalupe.

Many also helped to repaint some areas of the church.

The Lord really used this team and we are grateful for their good attitude to serve.

 

 

Carolina sings

We are excited to be in the new calendar year and also the beginning of a new school year here in Managua. It has been a fast few months since we celebrated the graduation of last year’s classes in November. Carolina, our school principal, and her sister sang several beautiful worship songs and amazed us with their singing abilities. Some of our sixth grade students have been with us for years so it is hard to see them go. The school continues to be a huge blessing to the community and the main focus of our evangelism efforts. The Bible is taught every week in classes as well as at morning devotionals Monday and Friday.

In November, the leaders went to attend a very blessed pastors/leaders conference in Antigua, Guatemala. The Holy Spirit ministered to all of us through His Word.

Also in November, Calvary Chapel Pacific Hills sent a small team down that was used in beautiful ways. Ken & Lindsey Krikac and Jim and Pat Henneforth were a huge blessing to many. Jim and Pat taught a seminar on parenting, and the question and answer time was surprisingly lively.

Pastor Ken is a department chaplain for Orange County California, and we were very surprised by the open doors and eagerness of the local fire fighters to receive counsel and God’s Word. Norman Urbina accompanied us to translate at our most important meeting at the main fire station.

We are praying for future opportunities to return to the local stations and do further ministry, perhaps even start a local chaplaincy program if God provides. Lindsey and Pat helped out at the school with the English class while the men went to visit the firefighters.

In December, the youth put together a wonderful Christmas Program along with a Gospel presentation by John Scelsi. The Lord has gifted us with many talented brothers and sisters who take joy in serving here.

The teachers pitched in and helped paint the outside of the classrooms. Carolina’s husband Lester did some dry wall repairs. They are both bilingual and Spirit filled believers, and we are blessed to have them as part of our ministry.

We are beginning a new Sponsor a Student program to ensure that the school can continue to serve the community here. If you would like to participate, you can send an email to: cal4godnica@yahoo.com

With love in Christ,

Cal and Jessie Stuebner

 

What’s New? Calvary Chapel Managua News August through October!

Well hello all!!! Greetings From Calvary Chapel Managua! We managed to gather up some photos to clue everyone in on a little of what God has been doing in our ministry these past few months. How time flies!

We treated our youth to a missions trip of their own! Fun times in San Juan De Limay filled with:

Mountain Retreats for prayer…

Bible Teaching for the youth of San Juan de Limay…

Puppet shows teaching powerful truths!

Captivated audiences!

And our amazing worship team! Thanks Guys for all your hard work! Please pray for all of the people that we reached out to through evangelism and bible teaching, that the Word of the Lord would run swiftly and bring many to salvation!

Next up, our school has been growing… not only spiritually as we seek to reach the next generation of Managua through this effort… but in style!

Our talented staff put together a cultural festival to celebrate the beautiful way of life in Nicaragua as well as highlight the history of these beautiful people!

From tales acted out by our children of the Indians and the Españoles…

To the preciousness of the dance and elegance of Nicaragua…

Our Children were not only expressive in great talent, but also exemplified great dress as each played their part to teach the history of their people!

Wow! What an event here! We at Calvary Chapel Managua were so blessed to watch God work wonders that we did not see coming! A women’s ministry event was hosted by Steve and Kathy Bailey, and God brought far more than we thought we anticipated! The men stepped up and served the local women bravely…

While Kathy took the time to teach and preach, reaching out to impact lives for Jesus Christ. What an amazing ministry this was! Great work!

People with a heart to reach others for Christ are so needed in these times. We watched in awe as Calvary Chapel Chelmsford brought a mixed team down of youth and adults and completely rocked lives for Christ.

The genuine heart of this group to fulfill the Great Commission through the Greatest Commandment shined ever more brightly as they showered the people of Nicaragua with the Love of the Gospel.

Para Los Niños!!! Amazing. Cute. Fun. Face Painting. Games. but… that’s not all… the Word of God is active and moving, alive and sharper than any two edged sword… and all of the kids at this youth event just got sown with the seed of the Gospel.

We completed the party of Bible trivia and prizes, balloon animals and games with what every kid wants, the candy of a Piñata all over the floor! Thankfully the Word went out and the lives of many young people were touched… which of these may be the next great man or woman of God to be raised to life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ? We don’t know yet, but we know Who does know! Please keep in prayer all of our efforts to touch lives through the Love of Christ and bring people into the knowledge of the Truth, Jesus.

Greetings from Calvary Chapel in Managua Nicaragua!

Every few months we look back and get to see all the exciting things God has been doing in our community!

In May we stepped back and watched as God used a medical team from New Jersey to bring not only healing to our Community, but hope. We were so blessed by the impact of love they left on the hearts of our neighbors!

New Jersey Medical Team

Our Computer Lab has its good days and its bad, but in all -it’s working!!! Thanks to everyone that chipped in time and effort!

Our Computer Lab!

Our Sunday School efforts are going great thanks to the faithfulness of our volunteers and our God, as He gathers together children weekly that we get to pour into with the love of God!

Sunday School is Going Strong!

We have had many of our 6th grade students since they were very small; and now they are preparing to move out of our school (which ends at 6th grade) and on to bigger things! We have given them all that we could to prepare them for what is coming. Please keep them in prayer as they venture out into a new world!

Our 6th Grade Class is Moving on Soon!

In June, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale visited us; and in a mere 3 day’s time, they far exceeded what we would have expected them to do! This included painting the school inside and out.

CC Fort Lauderdale Coming Through Making All Things New!

Our school faculty and children were sincerely blessed by a messenger of God’s Love this July! Mrs. Dot Pirrello came down and spent a month with us, leaving a long lasting impact on our kids and teachers! Thanks Dot for everything, which included a conference for our teachers (and teachers from another school) on dyslexia!

Dot in Action!

Every Tuesday night, men and women of our community gather to do what can often be lacking in ministry, pray. Surely Church, Satan laughs at our hard work and mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray! Keep us in prayer as we send men and women out into a community in desperate need of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Prayer Meetings!

You may have noticed in that previous photo some unfamiliar faces! Ian’s Five was in town in last July; and they came through like secret agents commissioned by Christ to teach, preach, evangelize, and… repair our lightning rod tower? Thanks Guys!!! Great job!

Ian’s 5!

Lastly, keep this in prayer! Christ taught us that the Father is seeking those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. We are going to be launching a series of studies with our church leaders and laymen to build them up in their faith! Keep our church in prayer please! We are right in the middle of an area that is in need of Christ. We want to leave an impact on the lives of those we have taught and those that we reach out to that will bring them ever more to the knowledge and love of Christ our Lord!

 

Well… it looks like that’s all the time we have for now! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions! Thanks for all of your continual prayer and encouragement always!
