Psalm 91 says this: Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.

From the beginning of the Bible to the end water flows through the pages of scripture. It is full of passages that link water to Gods creating, blessing and restoring work. This alone shows us the importance of water in our spiritual lives.

As life has its twists…turns…twirls & trills leaving one feeling helpless & hopeless in desperate need of a shelter…a shelter that’s Safe & Secure. This is something that God has opened our eyes and hearts here in Nicaragua. Come to me who are thirsty and I will give them rest …..this scripture is one that is embedded in my soul from him, our Lord. Not only is the water well important but also a place to rest, to clean, to be uplifted in spirits.

God asks us to give our lives to him and serve him by serving others. We say to them, “God loves you and so do I” which is reflected in the phrase Jesus, Te amo, which is said when we go evangelize or just do daily routines.

We can reduce poverty in the ways we mimick Jesus on our walk here. He always says their will be poverty but also commands us to care for the poor, the elderly and the afflicted. This is why bless the workers with a 5 gallon bucket and lid (used to transport water and not spill ) plus food and hygiene products for a months supply to free them from burden. Also we take prayer walks, and also prayer rides with “love bags” of food for people throughout the villages and rigged mountains. Father God is very good at leading us into places of contact with the elderly, the handicap, the single parents and also whereany children live in poverty. We make connections and bonds, pray for them and at times, they pray for me. Which is a feeling of freshness when I receive from them. Crying if you know me and is hard to keep the emotions inside when all I see is God’s grace and love working through me, through the partners, through the prayer warriors.

On Judgment Day, we will be judged by how we lived our lives and whether or not we loved others like Christ loves us. God reaches out to us and gives us different gifts to help His mission here through Aqua de Vida and you. His face during trials often is seen in the face of us, me and you as partnerships as He directs us to help others.

Of course, water is connected to more than just our physical beings. It is a part of virtually everything we do. We use it for cooking and cleaning. Water nourishes plants and flowers and helps all living things grow. Water cleanses our bodies.

Through the Gospels Jesus is preaching the coming of the Kingdom of God. He is shouting, “The Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the gospel!” “If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink!” “If anyone believes in Me, he will never die!” “I am the Bread of Life!” “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened, and I will give you rest!”

Thank you for all your prayers and support here in Nicaragua. As we continue to repair wells here in the surrounding area of Managua, there is another project to be done in El Chilamatal. Repairing a well, adding shelter, bano and lavadora. This project has a budget plan set for 5000.00$. if your heart was touched from this, pray to God and ask for the Holy spirit to guide you in your heart.

Blessings to you all. With much love, your missionary friend and family,

Angely, Tyanna and Shane
