Our God is an awesome God

Where to begin?  God has been hard at work.  In September, we made an appeal for financial support for the upcoming year.  These funds were needed by October 1st.  The last day of September, with little to no response to our plea, I realized I hadn't prayed about our need.  Feeling ashamed for not bringing it to God earlier, I began to pray that God would touch the heart of someone to pick up the phone or to write a check that day. Eager to speak with our church, but wanting to give God time, I waited as long as I could to call the church office.  I called the church office about 11:00am to discuss a few things that had come up at the school that day and nonchalantly asked if we had received any money.  The church secretary informed me that a large donation had come in, several families committed to a small monthly amount and others called to ask what are needs were. I don't know why we are so surprised when God answers our prayers.  Our God is an awesome God.

We have three programs that we want to raise money for in 2012: a youth rally scheduled for January, a soccer field and a livestock program.  $1000 has been given to each of these programs. Our God is an awesome God.

Jackson Christian School has donated all their soccer jerseys and shorts from the past 20 years!  The soccer team at Nicaragua Christian School will have uniforms for many years to come. A special thanks to Alicia Maners who took the initiative to approach her soccer coach and make him aware of the need for jerseys at NCS. Our God is an awesome God.

A new preacher, Espertaco, was hired for the Primero de Mayo Church and will begin in January.  He is married and has two children.  Espertaco and Sergio, the school minister, attended Baxter University together and talked and dreamed about working together one day.  God is fulfilling this dream by opening the door for Espertaco to join us.  Please pray for him and his family as they make this transition. Our God is an awesome God.

Following kindergarten graduation on November 25th, Xiomara, the school director, made her first visit to the United States.  She was in the states for two weeks and was able to visit many churches that support Nicaragua Christian School.  Although she missed her rice, she enjoyed her time in Tennessee and seeing snow for the first time.  Our God is an awesome God.

Currently we are in the states enjoying the holidays with our family and friends.  We will return to Nicaragua on January 6th. Classes at the school will begin in February.  We are excited to get back to Nicaragua and see what God has planned for this upcoming year.  2011 strengthened our confidence in prayer and I am anxious to see how that confidence will transform us in 2012.  Our God is an awesome God.
