LHI_1Nica2015Tomorrow, Thursday, January 8, a small team of us will travel to Nicaragua and be in Dario and Matagalpa for 8 days.  We will be working with friends there, including Jairo Miranda and Earl Rutledge.  We need and appreciate your prayer support.

The largest contingent of the team is from Living Hope International's Puebla, Mexico location, with others coming from Northern Mexico and a few of us from the US.

We will plan to post updates on the FXMissions Facebook Page while we are on the field, as time and opportunity permit.  Thanks for joining with us in our efforts for the Nations!

If you are interested in being involved in a short term trip in Latin America or Africa, let us know!

Blessings and thanks again!
