Ryan & Sarah Schmitz serve as Global Partners missionaries in the nation of the Nicaragua. They recently wrote with an update…


Before coming to Nicaragua, we firmly believed that God calls each Christian to reach their neighbourhoods, nearby communities and cities across the globe. When we stepped off the plane in Nicaragua, we knew that God wanted for us and the North American Church to be living out his vision. But he also wants this passion to be in the hearts of the Nicaraguan Church. We don’t see Nicaraguans as poor, helpless, passive receivers of charity – but as intelligent, creative, and gifted people, capable of reaching to the ends of the earth as well!

The San Juan de la Pliwood Church is a great example of this. Recently the congregation there was gifted a piece of property in the nearby community of Manchester. The believers took their families and traveled to this impoverished community. They sent groups of adults into that neighbourhood, inviting families to services, praying with them, and building relationships. Pastor Uriel has dedicated his time to be the pastor of those who came out in this community outreach. Although they don’t even have a roof over their heads, they are pushing forward with what they have and what they can do right now.

But that’s not all! This past week a woman named Xochilt, their worship leader, felt called to go on a mission trip. She rallied a group of ladies to travel with her to Honduras! The San Juan church people could have said “we need all the help we can get here…We have done enough!” But they didn’t. God has set their hearts ablaze and they are seeing Him provide in every step of faith and outreach they make. Thank you for helping us impact lives and whole communities here, near and far!

Much love and blessings,

Ryan, Sarah, Micah, Eva, Abel & Esme Schmitz
