Missionaries Ryan & Sarah Schmitz serve with Global Partners in Nicaragua. They recently wrote with an update on the work…

Dear Milliken Church, The past month has included some encouraging days. Ryan attended a conference in Bogota, Columbia with leaders from many Latin American nations. They are equipping and praying for more Latino brothers and sisters to be sent out as missionaries. What a beautiful expression of the church at work!

Also this month we hosted a mission team from Ohio. They helped with some construction projects in one of our churches, and some educational events with a local school. Great relationships were built and both the host church and the mission team were of encouragement to each other. We are incredibly encouraged and blessed by you, our wonderful support team!

This month, through your generosity and fervent prayers, the last of our churches that only had dirt floors now have concrete floors. Two churches that serve their communities by cooking nutritious meals from scratch for children, now have economic stoves, safe water storage, and sturdy pots and pans. Also, two new plots of land have been purchased for growing church plants. There is so much to celebrate.

Please pray about coming to visit us again! We would love to host another mission team from your church! Many blessings from the land of lakes and volcanoes!

Ryan, Sarah, Micah, Eva, Abel & Esme
