Mission Possible - Nicaragua, Central America
- Written by Timothy Vowell
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. It borders Honduras in the north and Costa Rica in the south. Though it may still carry a reputation of uneasiness, Nicaragua now profiles itself as one of the least dangerous countries in Latin America. Poverty is still striking and the need for Christ is what makes Nicaragua an important mission field for Mission Possible.
About Abre Tu Mano al Pobre
Relationships for Christ ministers in Nicaragua through the ministry of La Vid Veradera a local congregation in Managua, Nicaragua and its social outreach ministry Abre Tu Mano al Pobre, along with other local churches and pastors. Abre Tu Mano al Pobre’s primary mission is to deliver rations to struggling families, feed and clothe at risk children and reach out to the more needy communities of Managua, Nicaragua with the “Good News” of Jesus Christ
About the Missionaries
Abre Tu Mano al Pobre was founded in December 2009 by Abraham Ortiz and his wife Luceila Ortiz. The Ortiz family, along with Pastor Bismarck Quinto of La Vid Veradera have been working for the last three years to establish an outreach center that will not only minister to the spiritual needs of Nicaraguans but also minister to the social issues that cause extreme poverty. They envision converting La Vid Veradera’s old church location into a community center that will of- fer education, medical screening, and basic nutrition for families in transition.
RFC Mission in Nicaragua
Relationships for Christ Ministries along with its affiliates in Nicaragua ministers to the men and women who call the Managua City Land- fill their home. In conjunction with La Vid Veradera and Abre Tu Mano al Pobre, our Mission Possible Teams hand out food and Bibles, offering prayer and love to the neediest of the needy in this impoverish area.
Our teams also work with national pastors, supporting a feeding program for the children in some of Managua’s poorest communities. In addition, we host leadership training, discipleship seminars, and evangelistic outreaches.
Activities and Accomodations
While in Nicaragua, Mission Possible Teams will be staying at a local hotel near the main church we will be operating out of, La Vid Veradera. There will be opportunities to participate in the City Garbage Dump Outreach with Abre Tu Mano al Pobre, leadership training, street services, evangelistic outreaches, and feeding programs for at risk children.
There will be a day of fun in which the team will be able to see an active volcano and shop the traditional market, and shop for pottery in the mountain village of San Juan de Oriente.
