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

Dear Milliken Friends,

Last month began a new school year here in Nicaragua. Just before it began, our teachers attended a retreat sponsored by the NiCE Foundation, which provides meal packets for students in extreme poverty. This teachers’ retreat was most encouraging to our teachers, who face many draining circumstances. We are excited about how many students will experience the loving care of Jesus through these teachers.

Last week, we hosted a mission team from Trenton, Ontario. They were a great blessing to our Las Colinas School here in Matagalpa.

We also received permission from the Nicaragua Ministry of Education to form a secondary (high) school next year! This is a great answer to prayer! Please continue to pray for us as we hope for renewed residency visas from Immigration Ministry. There are high political tensions at work in the government.

Also, Nicaragua is facing a new set of economic sanctions by several nations in the region. This will create additional hardship. Thank you for your engagement and investment in us and in our fellow Wesleyan Christians here.

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