Church Planter of the Month
Rice and Beans 2.0
Carlos Silva graduated from the first ICP class in 2009 and moved to Valle Gotel to start Iglesia Bautista Luz y Esperanza. The church has grown steadily to around 50 regular attenders. Carlos is an important part of his church fellowship and a great help to our Institute as he has taught in the university system here in Nicaragua and knows all the details of how to prepare and present educational objectives and learning outcomes in Nicaragua.
Please pray for the church as a number of members have had to move to other countries to find work. Pray for Carlos as he is travelling more for the church fellowship.
Prayer Requests and Praises:
- The ICP classes went very well last week with about 17 church planters in attendance. Please continue to pray for these men and their families.
- Please pray for Bruce and Pastors Luis and Valeriano as they travel this week to Jinotega and other areas in the northern part of Nicaragua. They are surveying areas for future Institute of Church Planters locations.
- Thank you for praying for Peter as he traveled last month. He leaves for Costa Rica again on Friday for an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament with an Ultimate ministry team he has been a part of this year. Please pray for safety in travel and as he plays in the tournament.
- We are praising God that Peter has been offered a full scholarship to Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. Not only are we overwhelmed with God's provision, we are thrilled that Peter will be near family, our home church and camp as he transitions back to the US.
- Please pray for Peter and Emma as they help lead the high school youth group retreat next month. Emma will be leading music with the band, and Peter serves as a group leader in the youth group.
