Matt. 25:37 “Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?”
We have been given a wonderful message of love, hope and compassion to share with all we meet. What better way to convey this heartfelt message than by meeting a basic need of life.
A simple beginning
Since 2003, the feeding program has been touching lives among the poor, needy and downtrodden of Nicaragua with the love of God. We began by sharing a simple cooked meal with a few dozen people at the end of an evangelistic street service, realizing that many had very little if any food in their homes. Year after year the Lord has blessed the work and been faithful to provide as the message of His love is proclaimed.
The next four years
In 2009 a door opened to begin receiving the vitamin-enriched rice soy mix from Feed My Starving Children. This vitamin-enriched rice mix is specially formulated to help those suffering from malnutrition. Just a 12 ounce cup of the rice will supply most of the daily vitamins, minerals and nutrients a person needs. Some compare the benefits to that of taking a multivitamin. While the rice mix is intended to serve as a supplement to their daily diet, oftentimes it is their only meal of the day.
This wonderful blessing has allowed the feeding program to expand greatly in size and scope as 60 new feeding centers were added to our work with the Miskito Indians along the Rio Coco River. Since that time, the change we have seen in the overall health of the children in this region is nothing short of miraculous. The little ones are healthier looking and more energetic. So much so, that many of the school teachers have shared how much better the children are doing in class since participating in the feeding program.
By 2013, as our outreach expanded into the mountainous region of Northern Nicaragua, more feeding centers were added. We currently have over 23,000 people enrolled in the program and are serving approximately 140,000 meals per month.
Our prayer is to be able to continue expanding the feeding program to many more locations and hope you will join us in praying for many more lives to be touched and hearts changed by the love of Jesus.
