As is usual, after a few days, even the most explosive news dies down and becomes less interest-grabbing and we can become a bit callused to it. We don't hear of snipers shooting into protesters anymore but our Nicaragua brothers and sisters still suffer life turned upside down. Living with your guard up constantly, not knowing what you can say to whom, who is going to not like something you do or say enough to report you - these situations that get your cortico-steroids levels on overdrive - that's become the way of life. Our friends have to decide if they will violate their conscience and march in forced government support marches, or lose their jobs. Tourist trade has become non-existant and many hotels and resorts have completely shut down leaving many thousands without jobs. All the hardship trickles down to the churches. People make less money, they have less to tithe on. People fear going out, the numbers dwindle. It seems like a whole lot of bad news, but there is good news too. The hunger for growing deeper in Christ is strong. Our friend recently traveled there and is teaching to groups of 100+ pastors almost everywhere he goes. He rejoices with the hunger that is demonstrated to persevere. Another pastor wrote of their community's churches banding together to meet weekly to pray and go door-to-door presenting Bibles and asking the families if they can pray for them. They are seeing great receptiveness to the Gospel as people face fear continually. And the Blessing of God Farm looks gorgeous with its greens and lush growth of beans and corn. God is not finished and we ask for your prayers to continue on behalf of your brethren located in Central America.
