Assembly work in Nicaragua started just about 20 years ago, and we are very grateful for each of the 12 testimonies established during the years when it was known as the most peaceful country in Central America. It has been just over a year since the political situation changed drastically with increased conflict, violence and government control over all areas of life, which in turn has forced changes in the work, as well. With security being a concern we have focused most of our attention closer to home, reinforcing doctrinal truths to better equip local brethren to carry on in the future. It is very encouraging to see them taking on more of the teaching responsibility and developing their gifts.

Over the last year assemblies around the country have seen a growing interest amongst teens and young adults, and so we are trying new ways of taking advantage of this opportunity. The camp facility is proving to be a great blessing in this part of the work as it gives us a place to get younger people together and focus on teaching them and developing youth leadership.

God has blessed in salvation, and it is great to see many going on for the Lord. The worsening economic situation in the country is spreading to affect all levels of society, and the ability of the Christians to meet the basic needs of their families will become more complicated. We are very grateful to see how the believers care for each other and their willingness to help as they are able.

A number of Gospel efforts are planned in the next few months. The Dolores and Jinotepe assemblies are joining for meetings to begin on the 15th of July. We value prayer for this effort and trust that there will be much blessing at this time. An opportunity has opened in the city of Sebaco in the central part of the country, and we trust we will be able to share the gospel there in the coming months. Please pray with us that we may continue to have the liberty to preach the gospel in this country and to meet without any opposition from the authorities.

On the family level, Amy and Brenda have moved back to Marysville, WA, to continue their education and seek employment, while Craig is attending university here in Nicaragua. The Lord has been good to our family and blessed in many ways, and it is good to see each going on with a desire to be obedient to the word of God.
