Nicaragua Stories Matter....
A Place For Us International Ministry is specifically focused on Nicaragua, a country located in Central America. Our International Ministry exists to infuse the Good News where it operates. The ministry wants to restore hope and justice, to help fight extreme poverty, and to combat global sexual slavery and exploitation through community outreach and work training.
In March and May of 2023, our President and Founder, Tammie Price, was able to travel to Nicaragua along with a member of our board, Sherry. During their time in Nicaragua, these ladies were able to continue spreading the Gospel, ministering to the sick, and meeting the needs of those in various communities. The slideshow below outlines just a few of the ways these ladies were able to be the hands and feet of Jesus during their trips this past spring.
Picture 1 - 2 : Tammie and Sherry praying for the sick. Due to our generous sponsors, Tammie and Sherry were able to pray for the sick and give those in need ointments and general medicines for their injuries.
Picture 3 - 4 : Through our water filter campaign in 2021 & 2022, we were able to purchase water filters for those in need in Nicaragua. We were finally able to deliver some of these filters! In an effort to impact as many lives as possible. we donated filters to schools and community members who have the ability to share with others.
Picture 5 : Another way we were able to support those in need was through giving clothes to community members.
Picture 6 : These nails were done by a former graduate of the Circles of Hope Beauty School of A Place For Us Ministries International. She stated that doing nails helps her financially! We were so blessed to hear the testimony of how her education through Circles of Hope has impacted her life.
This is Esmeralda. Her mother and siblings attend Casa de Dios. We were blessed to visit the church in October 2022. We noticed Esmeralda worshiping the Lord with her whole heart during the service. It did not take long before she warmed up to us Americans. Before we left, she stole our hearts. We all got lots of hugs and kisses from this little girl--enough to last a year. We hope to go back and see her and the other children soon. We are praying that she will remain in church with her family and serve the Lord there in La Conquista. We are praying for many others to remain in church at Casa de Dios, too. She loves drawing, and we were able to purchase her an art pad and markers.
When visiting Nicaragua, it is with great pleasure that we get to visit and pray over many of the elderly men and women. Some, we have come to know and love for many years. This lady being one of them. Juana is 105 years-old. When we first meet, she was expected to lose her leg. We prayed and asked God to heal her. Today, at least 5 years later, she still has her leg. Each time we go, we take her glasses, buy her medicated cream, pray over her leg and for God to strengthen her. She always greets us with a warm welcome. On our last trip, she told us she could no longer eat regular food. We left and got her a container of soup. When we arrived back to deliver her soup, she had put on her Sunday best purple and white dress. She shared with great enthusiasm the story of Moses and baby Jesus with us before leaving. Please keep Juana in your prayers.
