“Let the little children come to Me”

by Dr. Leonardo Neitzel, LCC Mission Executive

On January 20 we visited the communities of Maranonal, La Caronera and Gracias a Dios, where missionary Maximo and his wife, Deaconess Juri carry on the mission. It has been a blessing to witness the dedication of the deaconesses in the Lutheran education program of our church in Nicaragua. It is now the summer break for school children and the deaconesses are making the best of a little more vacation time to involve children in Bible stories, teaching and learning activities.

There is a powerful message for us as it relates to the twin sisters – Christian mission and education. These children are receiving the valuable treasures of eternal salvation on a regular basis as the Holy Spirit instills in their hearts the love of Jesus for them. As we read in Proverbs 22:6: “Teach the child in the way he should go and even when he is old he will not depart from it.” We thank and praise our Lord for such a blessed effort done on behalf of the mission education in Nicaragua.
