Thanks to so many generous donors The Mercy Center is on target to open April 1st (ish). Yay yay and yay again.

This last January, Ron and I took over a dozen faithful, devoted volunteers down to Jalapa, Nicaragua. We were able to witness the construction of the finishing touches to the one and only physical therapy center in the Jalapa area.  This is a beautiful space where the moms of the mercy kids will be encouraged. It is a space where the children will receive physical, occupational and speech therapy. It is a space where people will be able to volunteer, to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  The center will be a space where children and moms, both, will receive spiritual insights into the love of their heavenly father. It is just so exciting to be eyewitnesses to something so beautiful.

Pastor Carlos and Pastor Abel are energized and ready to include their local communities.  There are folks in the area that are learning about the number of kids with disabilities.  Education and awareness are two key factors to changing the story of disability for these kids.  These children were born into something they had no input into.  Their stories are difficult stories.  They are without a government who provides programs, aid, and all kinds of paid for resources They are without special-ed classroom opportunities. They are without curriculums, after-school programs, respite opportunities and the list of “withouts” could go on and on. That said, it is exciting to be part of a “with” program.  We are providing them with beautiful new things and you can see and sense their anticipation.
