Church leaders look over a map of Managua as they consider potential mission plant sites.

NICARAGUA – On October 21 Rev. Leonardo Neitzel, Lutheran Church–Canada’s (LCC) Executive for Missions and Social Ministry) met in Managua to discuss the creation of a new mission plant. Present for the meetings were Rev. Edmund Auger (LCC’s new regional mission overseer) and Rev. Dr. Nilo Figur and Licenciado Ricardo Arguello, representatives of Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones (CPTN—the Nicaraguan Lutheran Hour).

This was a second meeting between these leaders and was preceded by on-site survey visits to examine the possibility of a establishing a LCC mission site jointly with the office of the CPTLN in Managua in 2015.

Two promising suburbs have been surveyed: Bello Horizonte and Jardines de Santa Clara. These are well-known areas, easily accessible, and the people there already have connections established by previous missionary work.

“LCC trusts that the Lord Jesus will continue to assist us in the survey stage, the starting of the project, and the interview call process as we seek to commission a missionary for Managua,” said Dr. Neitzel. “We pray and trust that LCC’s members, churches, and service organizations will pray and financially support this new mission start in 2015.”

For information on how to assist LCC in this mission plant, please contact Dr. Neitzel by phone at 1-800-588-4226 (ext. 2215), or email him at missions@lutheranchurch.ca.
