Pioneering a Servant Partners Ministry in Managua

You ask, what exactly will we be doing in Nicaragua?

We will be working under the direction of Servant Partners, but as employees of Foundations Ministries. Servant Partners is a missions organization whose primary focus is ministering to the urban poor. The goal is for us live in community with the urban poor in order to foster trust and understanding, and so that we will have an opportunity to experience the lives of the people in that neighborhood. Our first 3 to 6 months will focus on getting our bearings, meeting people that we may choose to partner with, learning the language, and finding an appropriate place to live in or near an urban slum.

Once we have moved into that community we will spend the rest of our time getting to know people, possibly planting a church, and possibly even starting a community center. We hope this will give us the opportunity to help individuals on a personal level, while at the same time helping us understand what it will take to make the first steps toward systemically changing that neighborhood. The 2-5 year goal of Servant Partners is to raise up local leaders to create a church community that actively participates in changing the structure and shape of the neighborhood. This can happen through creating a vocational training center, some type of medical clinic, a micro grant program, or whatever makes the most sense for that neighborhood, based on our shared experience there, and Servant Partners' experience in other urban slum neighborhoods around the world.

While all this is going on we will be setting up an internship program to mentor individuals and show them how God is working in the urban slums of Managua. This will give us the opportunity to really share our experience with others and spread an understanding of how God calls Christians to live. Mike and I are very excited about this prospect and are already thinking about what will need to happen for the internship aspect of this to be successful.
