On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”

John 2:1-3, ESV

Being blessed with Angely and Tyanna, God has softened my heart even more for the mothers here in Nicaragua, allowing the Holy Spirit to enter my soul. Touching me in ways that now I wonder and think that mothers have these abilities because it is rooted in and through the journey of bearing, sustaining and raising a child.

The mothers whom I met while getting blessed with an opportunity to know, especially the one in the photos with a special needs child, all having remarkable ability to read and adapt to the needs of any situation while responding with a solution for what little they have. No water. No electricity. Seeing her children look entirely dependent upon their momma for life, guidance and love. She is very attentive to their needs and seek out creative solutions to the ever-expanding needs of her home front for what little they have but each time I see her, she is always smiling, always giving praise to God.

Should come to us as no surprise that mothers care not only for their own children but for the needs of their friends, families, and communities in deep and meaningful ways. This is why I want to take time to share with a couple of videos and photos so everyone can witness and experience the trueness of these wonderful moments of our last 2 projects of Hope in the Santa Martha area which God connected you, me, Aqua de Vida with to not only repair a wells that has been abandoned for years with a new type of machine but to shine the light of Jesus in any way possible that we can to them. From mothers who found a way to close the top of the well and start planting a garden of plants around the foundation we built to the pregnant mom caring for her special needs child giving praise to God every chance she has while giving inspiration to her other daughter to continue studying for a better future.

For all we come across here in Nicaragua, it’s the Holy Spirit guiding us on this wonderful journey of what we call life with Christ. Still much to do in this area of Santa Martha. Its raining season now with much flooding and will cause the river they use for all their needs will become saturated with runoff causing debris plus bacteria to overwhelm the only spot to get water but with our faith in our Lord, one by one God changes lives through us as one body of Christ from afar to near with people like you.

With much love from your missionary family,

Tyanna, Angely and Shane
