Missionaries Ryan & Sarah serve as Global Partners missionaries in Nicaragua. They recently wrote an update on the mission there…

Dear Milliken Church Family, Hola! How are you? We pray you are well. After nearly six years in Managua (the capital city), our family is moving to the interior city of Matagalpa! As you know, this city in the north of the country is nestled between mountains and surrounded by coffee plantations and processing plants. Our new assignment there will be three-fold”

(1) Christian Community Development alongside the Las Colinas Primary School. One of these projects will include expanding the garden project, and English language club, a theatre program, and hosting their extended library hours so that students will have a safe place to study and receive tutoring.

(2) Expanding the school to include high school grade levels. We are passionate about providing more opportunities for these students to be invested in spiritual and academic opportunity. This will empower them to attend university and break the cycles of poverty that limit so many.

(3) Church Planting – we will work to gather a team of Nicaraguan leaders to plant a missional church movement in the centre of the city of Matagalpa. This group will work to plant additional church groups in the region. Please pray for our family as we make this move. We are excited to have the opportunity to pioneer ministries and expand existing ones.

God has set our hearts on fire to reach new places, and He has given us fresh energy to tackle the many challenges. May God also give you fire and energy to do His great work in the new year ahead!

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