Nicaragua is a country that has been savaged by wars and natural disasters. There are three classes of people; the rich (mostly political), the poor and the extremely poor.

Nicaragua's borders are currently open to mission teams and the hearts of the people are ready to receive the gospel.

According to Unicef, one of every three children has some degree of chronic malnutrition and nine per cent suffer from severe malnutrition.

The Country's unemployment rate is high, nearly 20%. Those who work earn an average of one dollar ($1.00) a day. Rice costs them over .50¢ a pound.

He who gives to the poor
will lack nothing. - Proverbs 28:27

There is no such thing as welfare, food stamps or medicare. Nicaragua is slightly larger than New York state. It has a population of about 5,000,000, has two very large lakes and 28 volcanoes.
