Seventeen Immanuel members, friends and youth departed for Nicaragua, returning on Saturday, August 19th! Through global partnerships like this one, we can reinvigorate our commitment to fighting poverty both locally and globally. Our denominational partners in Nicaragua focus on sustainable social change, justice education, and the alleviation of poverty. They frequently host US delegations like ours which support locally-led initiatives in Nicaraguan cities, towns, and villages. These initiatives may include supporting local schools, working on clean water projects, or assisting with housing needs. The trips always include education, advocacy, and relationship development. We wish the Nicaragua team all the best as they seek to change the world, and change themselves, through work with global partners.
