Building a band of brothers in Somotillo, Nicaragua
Organized by: Mike Orren
Together with IBAC, we went to Somotillo, Nicaragua and held an inspiring two-day conference with 109 young men who lack good male role models.
We helped them form small groups for support, accountability, bible study and general life coaching. And we hired a group of young men to rally them to continue meeting until we can return.
In order for this effort to continue to work, we need help putting some additional infrastructure in place.
Essential needs include:
- A computer for the local administrator
- T-shirts for the eight groups formed, each with our logo and their group name, so they can be seen around town and remind everyone to participate.
- New Testaments for their bible studies
Stretch goals include:
- Soccer equipment – the local team acts as a ministry and is instrumental in gathering the men together. Even soccer balls are scarce and valuable in this community.
- Funds for a refurbish of the town's soccer field. You'll see in the pictures that it is a rocky, dirty mess.
