Missionaries Ryan & Sarah Schmitz serve with the Global Partners agency in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. They wrote recently with an update…

Dear Milliken Church Family,

Three siblings in our Los Colinas School seemed particularly distressed last month. We learned that their mother had been diagnosed with cancer. We offered to help provide for the treatments. But they refused. Their mother had been told my another minister that if she simply claimed faith for healing, she would be cured. Several weeks later, this mother died. Still, the girls were advised that they must leave the body in its bed because their mother would be resurrected on the fourth day. When this failed to happen, the children were devastated. Our hearts broke because of the lack of biblical teaching. We wish we could wrap up this story with a tidy, positive ending.

But the truth is messy and painful. More than ever, we see the desperate need for our Las Colinas school to flourish and grow. We also need to plant churches where healthy, biblical teaching is available to the people. While we grieve for our students’ loss, we also pray for God’s powerful intervention in this country. The government has now taken over the news outlets, expelled nine non-government agencies, and forced the last group of human rights observers out of the country. A sense of fear and dread hangs over the people.

We are continuing to work and live as normally as possible. We believe that significant challenges are ahead. But our role is not to engage politically. We are only here to see children fed and educated, Christian leaders equipped, and new churches planted. We are incredibly grateful that during this challenging year, we have an equally incredible God and Christian team behind us!

God bless you all in the new year!
