This past summer, members of Cary church of Christ had the privilege of joining a mission effort in Nicaragua. This trip took place as part of the Latin American Missions, overseen by the Forrest Park church of Christ in Valdosta, GA. Latin American Missions (LAM) is a multi-faceted mission effort to bring the Gospel to Latin America, primarily through Native Preacher Training. Cary church of Christ also partnered with LAM efforts in 2010, 2012, and 2014.
Here’s what Cary church of Christ member Brenda Hayner had to say about the trip:
Thank you to everyone who supported us and prayed for our mission effort to Nicaragua. We had a very successful trip and were blessed to be a part of it. We had 38 team members that consisted of several teens and adults.
Here is a brief summary of our work.
We knocked 138 doors, made 315 contacts, 271 Bible studies, 12 baptisms (including 1 young lady in our group), and 1 wedding in the 6 days we worked. A second wedding is in the works.
The newly weds wanted to be married, but couldn’t afford to, so they lived together and had a child. The team that worked with them taught them the truth and they wanted to get married before they were baptized. The team chipped in and paid for the necessary paperwork. We had the wedding followed by baptisms of the bride and groom.
Eryn worked in VBS all week. Kaleigh, Angelina and I worked in the field holding Bible studies and helped out in VBS in the evenings. We worked on teams and I held two one on one studies with ladies.
Thank you again. To God be the glory!
Brenda, Kaleigh, Eryn and Angelina
