The Classroom And Perimeter Wall Are Finished!!

We are so excited to have this classroom completed. There are more pictures of the inside below. Right now the caretaker and his family are living in the classroom until we complete phase two. Phase two is to build the last two classrooms and the caretaker's home (future parsonage). Those plans are in the works for 2017. If you would like to give towards the construction of phase two, please click on this link and let us know it is for Rayitos. http://holsinger.abwe.org/donate-support

Sadly in November we had to put our beloved Thor down. He was poisoned 5 days before the attempted break-in of our home. He is missed every day. Thankfully the robbers did not get inside and we have since added more precautionary security.

Thank you so much, McGrady family, for giving us Hershey! She is so different from Thor but such a gift. We love her dearly!! She has eaten more shoes!!!!! ahhhhhhhh :)

I had the awesome opportunity to celebrate my birthday with my Rayitos kids. I received almost 100 hugs that day!! One my most favorite birthdays ever!!

We had the privilege of taking a 2 day vacation to the beach. It was a wonderful time of relaxing!! We really enjoyed climbing all over the rocks and collecting shells.

We shared with you in November that ABWE had chosen Rayitos to be a giving project in the year end giving! We are excited to see how God will provide this year. Each month we spend $1,000 to feed over 1600 children. Our rice is donated to us from the organization Feed the Hungry. So when you see Feed a Hungry Child (in Nicaragua) - those are our Raytitos Kids!! Here is the ABWE link to give to Rayitos: http://www.abwe.org/2016-giving-catalog

ABWE Ministry Center. Mark is completing his first year as director of Centro ABEM. God has blessed the center and many people were blessed as well. This year the center had over 100 days of camp and over 7,500 campers! We served over 20,000 meals. We hosted church planting classes for a new class of pastors and also had continuing education classes. We hosted many other events, conferences, and mission teams as well, There is a lot going on! Please pray for the continued development of the center. The increased activity has put a strain on our facilities. Please pray for God's provision for expansion of our facilities through 1) Expansion and improvement of our kitchen facilities, 2) construction of a maintenance facility, and 3) expansion of office facilities. These are important projects to allow us to have a center to equip and edify the body of Christ. If you would like to give towards these projects you can give on-line at http://myaccount.abwe.org/p-2036-nicaragua-ministry-center-project.aspx (#) or give through our personal account.
