Shining the Light Ministries, our mission partner in Nicaragua, provides agriculture training and support to low income families in the area around Leon. Here’s an excerpt from their recent newsletter.
As the Global pandemic continues, we are working hard to work with other missions and missionaries In the Leon area. Empower is making face shields for ABLLDC staff and family and Vickie Cline continues making masks for us. As you can imagine, the pandemic is creating job losses, food shortages and the medical system is more stressed than ever, and we continue to help Dr. Medina with food and medicine. We have started helping our gardening communities with food supplements of rice and beans. A bulk bag of rice and a bulk bag of beans costs $135 and helps 30 families for a week.
