In September we had a great team from CC San Juan Capistrano in California. They took
on the huge project of removing the mineral stains and re-coating our rock wall in the sanctuary. It now looks better than new.
We also took a trip up to San Juan de Limay to minister to the people of the Calvary Chapel in that town. It was a blessing to reconnect with those wonderful people.
We were able to evangelize to the dump people in Barrio Guadalupe.
Many also helped to repaint some areas of the church.
The Lord really used this team and we are grateful for their good attitude to serve.
We are excited to be in the new calendar year and also the beginning of a new school year here in Managua. It has been a fast few months since we celebrated the graduation of last year’s classes in November. Carolina, our school principal, and her sister sang several beautiful worship songs and amazed us with their singing abilities. Some of our sixth grade students have been with us for years so it is hard to see them go. The school continues to be a huge blessing to the community and the main focus of our evangelism efforts. The Bible is taught every week in classes as well as at morning devotionals Monday and Friday.
In November, the leaders went to attend a very blessed pastors/leaders conference in Antigua, Guatemala. The Holy Spirit ministered to all of us through His Word.
Also in November, Calvary Chapel Pacific Hills sent a small team down that was used in beautiful ways. Ken & Lindsey Krikac and Jim and Pat Henneforth were a huge blessing to many. Jim and Pat taught a seminar on parenting, and the question and answer time was surprisingly lively.
Pastor Ken is a department chaplain for Orange County California, and we were very surprised by the open doors and eagerness of the local fire fighters to receive counsel and God’s Word. Norman Urbina accompanied us to translate at our most important meeting at the main fire station.
We are praying for future opportunities to return to the local stations and do further ministry, perhaps even start a local chaplaincy program if God provides. Lindsey and Pat helped out at the school with the English class while the men went to visit the firefighters.
In December, the youth put together a wonderful Christmas Program along with a Gospel presentation by John Scelsi. The Lord has gifted us with many talented brothers and sisters who take joy in serving here.
The teachers pitched in and helped paint the outside of the classrooms. Carolina’s husband Lester did some dry wall repairs. They are both bilingual and Spirit filled believers, and we are blessed to have them as part of our ministry.
We are beginning a new Sponsor a Student program to ensure that the school can continue to serve the community here. If you would like to participate, you can send an email to: [email protected]
With love in Christ,
Cal and Jessie Stuebner
