Summer News from Calvary Managua 2015



In July, a team came down from CC Merritt Island to help us out with covering up graffiti on the church and repainting much of the school. It is good to have things looking new again. The team was joined by John Meneghini, his son Noah, and his daughter Michaela. John and his son, as always, helped us a bunch with network and computer issues.


Alysha Rosado came down on her own for a few weeks. She worked with the CCMI team and helped out around the church in many ways. She and Michaela Meneghini stayed for a while after the team left to help out in the school.


They also inspired us to take the youth group on a field trip! Cal and Jessie brought about 20 young people and chaperone’s to Volcano Cerro Negro, one of the youngest volcanoes (and one of the most active) in the western hemisphere. We hiked up the side in some unusually intense wind, many of us carrying sleds to slide down on. It was a wonderful time! Thanks, in part, to our youth leader Rene for helping with the costs.


n August Jeremy Foster and his daughter Emily spent a week helping out with the school and various projects around the church. It was a blessing to Cal to have Jeremy’s companionship for a week that otherwise might have been stressful due to car repairs and other such hassles.

Saturday night on Sept 26, we held a special prayer and worship service until midnight that was well attended. Cal, Gustavo, and Elvis all shared messages encouraging people to fast, pray, and love each other; and the youth led worship, with the help of Gustavo and Elvis. Jessie helped set up snacks and drinks, including lots of coffee!



As always our primary school has been active with a day to honor a famous battle in Nicaraguan history on September 14 and a special day to celebrate the 445thyear of the Bible being translated into Spanish on September 24th.



The youth always have fun on an outing.





Marylin enjoyed visiting with Michaela and Alysha.

Spring News 2015




We had a great start to the school year with 130 students enrolled and two very good new teachers. Anielka is teaching English and Computer Science. Clementina is teaching sixth grade and is a good addition to the team.



In March Pastor Ken Krikac came down with Firefighters for Christ to do some training with the Firefighters in Granada. Cal was able to help with some translation and it was encouraging to see some of the firefighters accept Jesus.





In April the Pelletier family came down to do pig heart dissections at Jessica’s school. We had a good time of fellowship and were in awe that the Lord provided just the right amount of hearts at the perfect time to minister the those youth about the wonder of creation.






Also in April the Medical team from CC Old Bridge was here to heal bodies and minister to souls. They were a huge blessing to many in the church and many who just came to receive medical attention. Everyone was prayed for and some received Jesus.



We received a specified donation to replace some of the old a/c units at the school so we now finally have six class rooms with a/c again so the students do not have to suffer the heat.

Winter News 2015




We have enjoyed seeing the Lord work in the lives of the people at CC Managua this winter.

In November, we had a record ten people from CC Managua attend the Central American pastors and leaders conference in Antigua, Guatemala. It was a good time of fellowship and growth, especially for some of the youth leaders. 

Lester Johnson came down from Florida and completed numerous repairs, mostly plumbing, and especially at the school. He also evangelized on the street every morning. We are grateful for all of his hard work and prayers for us. 


Renee McKenzie spent a month here working with the school and helping at the church. Her love for the children was shown many times over. She was present for the sixth grade graduation which is a significant milestone in the lives of the children here in Nicaragua. 

Unfortunately, we suffered the loss of our beloved security guard and front-door evangelist on December 13. Iginio was a great brother in the faith and a friend to many who have visited. He had an awesome testimony of faith right up to the end in the hospital.  Please join us as we continue to pray for his family. 


Gilma is the younger sister of Geovanny and Jose. She celebrated her “Quincenera” (15th birthday) with a special service here at the church. She has been with us since childhood, and we pray that she will always walk with Jesus. 

During Christmas vacation we had a special celebration for all of those who serve here at the church. They are always faithful to serve, and we never say thanks enough. Please pray for this wonderful team of leaders and servants that have come alongside the ministry. 


In January, CC Costa Mesa sent down an awesome youth team who did a VBS for the children who were on vacation from school.  In addition, the team did work projects around the school and church in the afternoon. 

The Lord has been healing hearts and bodies here, and, it is through your prayers that we can continue to serve Him and see His faithfulness for His ministry and the people of Managua. Thank you for all of your support and prayers.
