What Need Is God Showing Us?

The east coast of Nicaragua is the poorest area of an already poor country.  That is where Dr. Bernardeth Kelly Bent and the Rev. Adrian Bobb provide public health and medical services, as well as spiritual and pastoral education to the population.

What Is God Telling Us to Do?

Dr. Kelly Bent and Rev. Bobb make several medical trips a year up river to villages that do not have access to medical care.  During these trips, they also provide support  for the villagers through worship services.

How Are We Doing What God Is Asking?

The Bobb-Kellys also run a children’s feeding program.  One meal a day is provided for  approximately 120 children each day, six days a week.
