It has been almost five years now since we had to close Colegio Esperanza in La Chureca. We trusted God in that time and didn’t grasp at straws, because we knew that our service to the children and families from La Chureca was for His Glory. And we also know how much God loves all of his creation. We trusted that there was a good plan for everyone of our kiddos. Over the last five years Club Esperanza has been a huge beacon of light in the community all the families from La Chureca were moved to. We write about it often and it has been such an exciting thing to be a part of! Watching God prove over and over how much he loves these children!
Every year over the last five years it is so difficult when our Early Childhood Education students graduate, knowing we are sending them off into someone else’s care. And sadly into bad schools. Every year the parents ask, “When are you going to open Colegio Esperanza again?” They says, “We love it here, we want our children to stay here!”
BIG NEWS: Next year we are going to Re-Open the school at Club Esperanza!
We are in the process right now of ordering everything with the Ministry of Education. Our partnership with Love, Light and Melody has been an incredible help and drive to make this happen. Sheyla and the entire staff at Club Esperanza or soooooo excited to open the school again! Many of them were with us when we tore the walls of the school down five years ago. Now we will build the school back together again! Amen!
Please keep this in your prayers over the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. In Nicaragua this is the ending and beginning of the school year, so all these things will be happening over the Holidays this year.
So, Please keep an eye out for news on the school and ways you can join in and help. We will need the help of individuals and organizations to see this happen.
