Pray for Christians in Nicaragua:

Since the middle of April, there have been nationwide demonstrations against the government of Nicaragua. As the demonstrations have broadened violence has escalated through gangs and criminals that have taken advantage of the situation. Roadblocks have also be established throughout the country.

As a result of this situation, many of the CRCNA staff and partner missionaries in Nicaragua have decided to temporarily leave the country. Many of those had already planned to return for the summer and simply pushed up the date of their departure due to the rising tension.

The CRCNA has a long history of involvement with Nicaragua beginning with a response to the earthquake that destroyed the capital city Managua in 1972.
Congregations of the CRCNA have established partner church relationships with churches in Nicaragua. Many CRCNA members have gone to Nicaragua as volunteers. Deep relationships have been formed with Nicaraguan brothers and sisters.

  • All of the Resonate and World Renew staff and partners in Nicaragua ask for your prayers. Anxious for their friends and colleagues in Nicaragua, they are keenly aware that their Nicaraguan brothers and sisters have no “alternate reality to which they may escape.”
  • Please pray for your missionaries as they process unplanned travel, uncertain circumstances, and an unknown future for their ministry. Please pray for ministry in Nicaragua as many organizations must cancel functions, reduce hours, or even close down indefinitely.
  • Please pray for the people in Nicaragua who struggle each day with providing for basic needs like food and water and face danger from increasing violence and lawlessness. Pray for peace, resolution, and lasting change.
  • Please pray for the church of Nicaragua who are facing this evil which has so quickly taken hold of their country. Evil is spreading not only through the streets but also creeping into relationships and undermining trust. Pray that they will shine the light of Jesus Christ during these dark times.
  • Please pray that God will spare Nicaragua from a lasting war.

The congregation of Hope in Christ Church has made the Spirit-filled decision to move forward and become a healthy missional church. This week’s Missional Marker is:

Life transforming walk with Jesus

(John 3:3, 30; Phil. 1:6)

  • We teach our people how to be attentive to Christ in all circumstances.
  • Our people understand the radical nature of the message and mission of Jesus that continually deconstructs and reconstructs a person’s life.
  • Our people are equipped and growing in their ability to use a variety of spiritual growth resources, experiences, and settings.
