In May 2014, a family of 3 was brought to us from Child Protective Services (DIF) due to serious abuse and neglect. Bruno, who was 2 years old, was on 7 different kinds of medications. One of those medications specifically treated him for the seizures he was having multiple times a day. When the family arrived, Bruno couldn’t walk, talk or feed himself like a two year old normally would be able to. His muscles were so underdeveloped we had to use a stroller or carry him everywhere. After a year of intensive care and love, he was removed from all medication and was beginning to walk, talk and feed himself!
A few years later, in January of 2017, we received notification from DIF that Bruno and his siblings would be returning to their biological family and to our surprise, the following Christmas of 2017, we were asked by DIF to take Bruno and his siblings once again. After almost a year away from us we are happy to report that Bruno is still running, jumping, playing and bringing joy to all those who know him! We are so encouraged by all that the Lord has done in Bruno and are so excited to see what’s in store for him and his siblings!
There is movement and growth in Romania! God is so faithful. We have had great progress on the remodeling of our building from several visiting groups from England, the US and our church from our Mexico base. We have cleared out the first floor of our building and where we held our very first church service on April 22nd!
In addition to that, we are happy to report that we have seen growth and momentum during our times of worship together on Friday nights. Our team has been so blessed by the relationships that are forming within families from the surrounding villages. Many of these families have children that are a part of our Family Care Program and we are so excited for this opportunity to pour into them on a deeper level! Please continue praying for and covering our team as they
God is moving in a fresh way in Nicaragua! For two weeks we were blessed by a visiting group from Redding, CA. They poured into us, served us and taught us all new ways to talk with God. On one specific day, the team sat with the boys from our children’s home and taught them about the languages of the spirit and how to hear God’s voice. One of the boys, Yilber, volunteered to practice and began prophesying over his house dad, Junior. It was so incredible to watch Yilber step so naturally into the prophetic and to see him grow in confidence and connection with Papa God! We are so excited to see the fruit that is being produced in the lives of these boys as they continue to soak up all the goodness that God has for them.
