Nicaragua Mission Project

 Connecting the Heart of Christ to the Hands of Christ.
Since 2009, Solid Rock Chapel has partnered with a church in Leon, Nicaragua. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the world. About 80% of the population lives on less than $2.00 per day. Their nation has been ravaged by corrupt governments, tragic earthquakes and hurricanes that have left many people locked in poverty. We were introduced to Pastor Denis Sanchez and his family in January of 2009. Pastor Denis has a passion and a vision for the community he serves. We felt like Pastor Denis and his church were the right kind of people to partner with. Pastor Denis’ church was already hosting a Compassion International Project but they did not have adequate buildings for the program. We started raising funds and sending teams of workers down to help with the building project. We started with 12 classrooms then went on to build a church building as well. Today there are over 700 children that participate in the Compassion Program at Project 155. God is so Good!
 
Several years ago Pastor Denis introduced us to Pastor Wenner Valle and his family. The Valle family was involved in an outreach effort in a neighboring community also in Leon. This community was also in dire need of a school and church building. Through lots of prayers, planning and hard work, this outreach has now grown into it’s own Compassion project and is serving the children and families of the community. This project is known as 6th Church or Compassion Project 291. 
 
The latest project involves another church building and Compassion outreach program in Los Penitas. This community is located near the ocean in a beautiful setting. The most pressing issue here is clean water. Families here typically have to purchase clean, potable water which poses a problem with such limited income. Pastor Wilberth and his family travel from Leon to lead the 7th Church here in this community. 
 
Please keep these 3 pastors and their families in your prayers as they serve their communities and share the hope that comes only through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
