Isn’t It Interesting How God Moves in His Timing?
Article submitted by Glen Dubois, President of MVI I love God stories. I’d like to tell you one story that started five years ago when we’d gone to Matagalpa, Nicaragua, to purchase the property for a school. The price was to be $60,000. At the closing, the lawyer asked for $30,000 more. We had to [...]

Cathedral Church of the Advent Short-Term Mission Team to Nicaragua
Article submitted by Mike & Lauren Deibert, Field Coordiantors in Nicaragua
In early July, a team of 20 young adults from Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham, Alabama, came to share their hearts with the people of Nicaragua. I (Lauren) was delighted because this is my home church, the one that has known me since I was in diapers. They served in many ways: painting the homes of Ramon and Jaime, sharing a day of vacation Bible school with the kids of Los Brasiles, doing prayer walks through a small community, offering a “spa” day for the women of Nueva Imagen, and taking the disabled children and familes of Tesoros de Dios to the Nicaraguan “waterpark.” Of course, they served with hearts wide open. But what struck Mike and me throughout the week is how teachable they were, how much they wanted to understand poverty on a spiritual level–including their own poverty. I saw real humility in their reflections. I saw a desire for equality in the way they served. I saw sincere questions in the way they prayed. Overall, Mike and I look back on this group and praise God that His truth really reached all of our hearts that week. Thank you, Advent, for letting the Spirit lead–and for encouraging our family in the process!
