Clearview Day 6: Our Missionaries

Clearview 2019 HANDS Team:

In 2010, God led ClearView to “adopt” Nicaragua as our country to develop an ongoing missional relationship with. Along with multiple youth and adult mission trips, ClearView supports two missionaries who have offices in the Nehemiah Center where our HANDS team is staying. We were privileged to spend time with both of these men and their families.

Mark VanderWees is a Country Consultant for World Renew. When asked what gave him the most meaning in his work, he shared that he is so thankful for being able to build capacity in his six para-church development partners - working in areas such as health, (HIV/AIDS),  gender violence, conservation agriculture and infrastructure for water delivery (our youth team helped with this!).

Yesterday’s blog mentioned our visit with Steve Holtrop who works with Resonate Global Missions. Building healthy churches is one of his passions and in this he does training for all interested denominations on Bible literacy, leadership, child protection and how a community can best respond to people in need.

Both families had to leave Nicaragua for a time during the height of the unrest but have returned to Nicaragua to bravely and faithfully follow God’s calling. We were pleased to be able to pray for them. Furthermore, we were so moved to hear that we were of great encouragement to them: the first team to come in nine months!

I would love to hear what the World Renew missionaries have heard or if they have heard or seen that would confirm the stories that the President and his wife have committed their lives to Jesus Christ. We ask the LORD to be present in their lives and decisions for the Glory of God's Kingdom.
