Our mission is to serve, so that Christ becomes more visible by providing opportunities for missionaries and impoverished families to grow through life-changing experiences. We strive to develop rural communities based on a model that brings clean water and sanitation, health care, education, and economic opportunities to families. Each year, we host over 2000 missionaries in Chinandega, Nicaragua. Working side by side with the communities, we bridge language and cultural barriers and offer hope and opportunity.
