Special Collection of School Supplies and Medicine for the After School Program in Nicaragua
Monday, September 14, 2015
A small delegation from the New York Conference have had the opportunity to visit the wonderful weekly educational program offered at various churches of the Iglesia Mision Cristiana. They serve children from neighborhoods in Managua who are the poorest of the poor.
At the First Church in Managua (one of the church’s serving the children) more than 300 children from ages 3 years to 15 years old participate in an afternoon program that focuses on the areas of cognitive and social/ emotional/spiritual and physical development. They also receive a nutritious meal every day. They have an incredible group of teachers/directors and volunteers who serve the children with the love of God.
Our next group going in January (after consulting with the Iglesia Mission Cristiana’s office) would like to bring with us some supplies that would be of great help to them.
We would like to encourage the Fall Association meetings to do a campaign with their local churches to collect the following items:
Pencils, pens, crayons, markers, coloring books, cash (we would like to buy the notebooks there)
Children’s story books in Spanish. Each Association will be responsible for sending these items to the conference office in Syracuse no later than January 15, 2016.
