Extra Time: Marriage Seminar

We want to take a few blog posts and share about our amazing staff at Club Esperanza and some of the Extra programs that they put together in their own free time.  “Extra Time”… going far above and beyond to affect the lives of our children and families at the Club.

“Grupos Matrimonial” – If you have been to Nicaragua recently and prayed with us at Miss Ruby’s house you would have met Marisol.  Marisol is a powerful woman of God and a friend of ours from church.  She has been helping at Club Esperanza this past year, and has been an awesome influence.  She and Sheyla recently had the idea to put together a Marriage Seminar for families from Club Esperanza.  One of the biggest battles for many of our students is that they come from homes where their parents’ relationships are broken or on the verge of collapse.  This seminar is an effort to do something about it!  This past Saturday Juan and Marisol, Roberto and Sheyla and another wonderful couple from our church put together the first “Grupos Matrimonial Seminar”.  Ten couples signed up and came on Saturday to find our cafeteria turned into a dining hall awaiting their arrival.  There was a time of teaching, a dinner together, and then a time of prayer for each couple.  The fruit of this seminar will be long lasting in the lives of each couple and it is going to make an impact on the entire community.  It was very special that afterwards several of the couples expressed their desire to get married, so we are going to work on having some weddings in the near future at Club Esperanza!  Again, so Awesome!
