Thank You for Your Prayers & Support Dear family and friends,
“He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap…” (Psalm 113:7) I truly thank you for your prayers for our team to El Salvador and Guatemala. It was a tough but rewarding trip. I came home exhausted, yet excited what God is doing in El Salvador and Guatemala.
We ministered in the orphanages, leadership seminar, youth group, and prison in El Salvador.
We shared the love of God with children in several orphanages in El Salvador, and a youth group. We also went into the upper mountains of Guatemala (8/10 of a mile high) to see and participate in the ministry of Misión Energes to the children and pastors of Jalapa, Guatemala. This reminded me of the verse, “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation…” (Isaiah 52:7)
My heart is for the children and young people, that is the future of the church. The prison is always special to me to see teen girls from the gangs who are in for murder crying and praying to receive Jesus. We simply told them that we love them, but God loved them so much that He put them there to hear the message of the gospel!
We were all blessed with seeing the work in Chimaltenango, Guatemala that we have been supporting for years. When you walk into a church of 150 children, your heart melts as they thank you for your support.
As a person once said to me, applies to all who prayed, and supported our trip…”We could never repay you here on earth, but one day God will repay you on the other side.”
Thank you again, your prayers and support made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children, pastors, teens in prison, and people..
With love and prayers, Joseph Nigro
