A message from the Editor: Mary Nicosia

Excited to see Ministry of Mercy organization growing. I have had the opportunity to share our work with others. I am excited to know more people would like to join our brigades.
The hospital and community in Nicaragua have given us the amazing privilege to be apart of a working relationship with them.

Ministry of Mercy has two missionary events planned for 2015. Anyone interested in joining, please contact us through our email or a phone call. Since all our volunteers provide their own means of support, including myself, we would be very grateful for any donations to help with the cost of our trips. Both of our pastors would like to visit Nicaragua twice in 2015, one for planning and one for the actual VBS and conference. Anyone who would like to contribute to their expenses can do so through paypal or a check. Let us know who the donation is for, or if just for the general fund. Thank you.
