Manna is growing and the Lord has opened new paths in two different locations in Central America - Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The Lord has revealed local leaders who were already working to build Kingdom in this region of the world. Manna's vision is to get behind and support these local leaders by training them, connecting them to new Spiritual resources, and by being a community that empowers them to do what the Spirit has led them to do.
The work in Nicaragua began with the dreams of two local couples. Alvin and Eyling, along with their 3 children, have partnered with Armando and Samirly to lead the work being done in Nicaragua. With a heavy focus on children's ministry, discipleship opportunities for adults, and home church gatherings, these families are already witnessing the Spirit moving in their community of Matagalpa. Manna is honored to come alongside these warriors and offer support, encouragement, and community as they seek to make disciples.
In Costa Rica, Ronald Mena is continuing to grow a local ministry he has been involved with for years. His gifts for pastoring and relationships make him the perfect fit for this type of Kingdom work. Ronald is primarily focused on discipling young men in the community. He also seeks to support and encourage families. He has been partnering with a Dominican missionary, Kevin Kuilboer, to work in developing this ministry together.
