In 2012 New Community Church (NCC) sent a team of leaders to Nicaragua on a vision trip that initiated a new partnership between our congregation in Pittsburgh, PA and Agros International. That team saw the new village of Tierra Nueva that NCC would help to support over the next 5-7 years. In the past two years NCC has sent a mission team each year to work alongside these villagers to love and support them in the name of Christ as they engage on an adventure to move from extreme poverty to middle class land owners in this new land in Nicaragua.
Now, in January 2015 our next mission team is making last minute preparations to go back to Nicaragua. The 2015 team consists of 12 people, including 2 middle school students. As we begin this final week of packing and preparing to leave for Tierra Nueva, we ask for your prayers for safe travels and a productive week with our friends in Nicaragua. We fly out of Pittsburgh on Sunday morning, January 11th at 6:00am and will be returning on Friday, January 16th at 5:00pm. We will keep you updated on the trip in this blog each day.
