A little News on the Mission Front

Peace and greetings to all!

Once again, I want to thank you all for your being a part of this adventure in Mission.

Over the past few days, I have been busy. Organizing, visiting and planning our work here.

The first recipient of the Catholic Spanish Youth Bible in the Orphanage is Brenda. She is 15 and has a serious kidney condition, with about a 9 % functioning rate. I went to visit her the other day with Jose Luis, the Director of Our Little Brothers Orphanage here in Managua. As we prayed with her, he said to her: "Some times our Cross is an invisible one. You, Brenda, are carrying that cross with such faith and strength... you are a witness to us. Thank you!"

I was very moved and a sad, after our visit. Such a young life... God has His plans for her.

Last night we had a good debate on Social drinking versus Alcoholism with the Youth of this organization who also live in Managua. We then reflected on a few passages from Scripture that reveals Gods plan for our future... full of hope and life!

In one word, our God continues to be a God of Life who walks with his people and in a very special way with the poor and little ones of this world.

God Bless you all,
