Nicaragua Mission Opportunities

YOUR church mission in Nicaragua is alive and well, thanks to you! When you think of our church's work in Nicaragua, please know that you are all part of the team, whether your feet ever touch the soil of that country, or stay here in Georgia. Because you are part of that team, I want you to know of some wonderful things that your dollars, your prayers, and your support are continuing to accomplish. Please read about these two ministries described here, be encouraged by those who have worked to develop them, and prayerfully consider how you will be involved in this work in the future.

Several years ago Fayette Presbyterian began a trade school in the Leon area. We did this to try to break the cycle of extreme poverty in a community that barely survived by working at the local landfill. Two years ago, Melissa Hasty Baron joined her parents, Glenda and Lamar, on a trip to Nicaragua. While there, she heard a presentation by the young people enrolled in this school, telling about their dreams and the hope they had of improving life for their families and their community. Melissa was determined to open up those opportunities to as many young people as possible. Because the trade school is overseen by Compassion International, Melissa started her conversations with them. Just this past week, after many months of prayer, letters, phone conversations, and more prayer – Melissa was told that this project has been approved, and there are now 54 young people ready to enroll in a year-long certification process, in their chosen field of either hairdressing or culinary arts! Our fundraisers, whether it was the Mission Dinner or the rummage sale, or your personal contributions to missions, are what have made this financially possible. We owe much to Melissa, for her determination to make this happen. But, as Melissa reminds us, Glory to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.

Just as the trade school was a dream that reached reality, we now have a new dream. Several years ago our FPC teams began a water filter ministry that has reached thousands of people, bringing them an easy way to purify their family's drinking water. In the past few years, church member Darrell Bandy has had two goals – to improve the water well situation in the countryside of Leon, and to develop a ministry that might appeal to people in our congregation seeking a hands-on ministry in Nicaragua. To those ends, Darrell has been working with Living Water International, setting up a well repair ministry for our church. Thanks be to God, we now have two well repair trips scheduled in 2015! Way to go, Darrell!

This is the spirit of mission, alive and well at Fayette Presbyterian! It sees a need, feels the pull of the Lord's calling, and makes it happen!

Please talk to these people if you have questions about any upcoming mission trips. And please continue to pray for our work in mission. Our ministry in Nicaragua has been a blessing to our church over the past 14 years, and your prayers have been the strength behind the work. Thanks be to God!

Fayette Presbyterian Church supports multiple mission organizations - local, national and international. We send quarterly contributions to the ministries listed below and participate in mission projects with Square Foot Ministries (a locally founded ministry) and El Ayudante (a Nicaraguan mission). Along with regular donation bins, we have holiday drives for Fayette Samaritans, Operation Christmas Child, and Fayette County DFCS families, collecting food, necessities and Christmas presents. We travel to Nicaragua at least once every other year, and have finished projects such as digging a well, building an orphanage, and distributing water filtration systems. FPC has also founded a program called Sychar, bringing fresh water to Nicaragua, along with the Living Water that never runs dry.
