Along with fall comes the end of another school year season. This has been busy here at CC Managua. We are rejoicing along with our school principal Carolina Chavez, about the birth of her first child, Jonotan David on fourth of Nov. Carolina has been very dedicated to the school and the driving force behind training a great team of teachers to minister to our students. The timing could not have been better since Carolina only missed the last few weeks of school and will get to enjoy the vacation time with her family before returning to lead the new school year at the end of January. Of course a wise leader always raises up others, and Clementina Huerta has done a great job of filling for Carolina while she has been away. We are blessed to have such a great staff at the school.
Another great ministry that gives us joy is the Awana Club children’s ministry. Nayka Barbosa has been heading it up this year and has done a great job of training leaders and keeping them unified as they share the Bible with the children of Barrio Santa Ana. In November, they celebrated the end of the program for this year with a special service in the church that included a drama and dances by the children. We love that they opened it up for others in the church to share talents as well, and several of our adults performed musical numbers.
We continue to praise the Lord for the work that He is doing in His church here. Noel Solorzano has been teaching the Wednesday service since July. The church is blessed to have a native speaker teach and minister, so we ask that you will pray for Noel to be blessed as well with this additional responsibility. Please pray that Cal will be able to continue to give enough help in the office to enable Noel to continue teaching even in the busy end of the year season.
As always, we must praise the Lord for his protection over the church and His people. Many have been asking how we weathered the recent hurricane and we want to thank you for your prayers. All of the weather charts showed the hurricane passing right through Managua, and the government issued a red alert, but it turned to the south and missed most of the country. We did not even receive much rain. Please continue to pray for the hundreds of Nicaraguans along the coast who lost homes and suffered major loss, but we do praise the Lord that there were no Nicaraguan lives lost in that storm.
Please pray for our special Christmas Eve service. That the Lord would bring the lost and save souls.
Please continue to pray for Ashley Castro, the girl across the street from the church who has She continues to struggle to recover her sight in one eye and the use of her limbs. Also pray for her family to accept Jesus.
Please continue to pray for God to raise up musicians/instrumentalists for our worship team.
Please pray for our school to be full as we begin enrolment for the new school year, which starts the first week of February. Please also pray that God will continue to provide support and sponsors for the school.
