Milagros Martinez, a deaconess from Iglesia Luterana Sinodo de Nicaragua, was a guest speaker at the LWML–Canada convention in Kelowna in July 2012. She described in detail a food program she manages that provides lunch almost 100 children. A convention offering received just over $3,500 for this program.
Recently Rev. Dr. Leonardo Neitzel, Lutheran Church–Canada, provided pictures of the children in the food program supported by LWMLC in Telica, Leon, Nicaragua. In the pictures below the children are helping to clean the property in Telica where a church is being built and waiting for lunch.
In January 2014 LWML–Canada president, Iris Barta, will travel to Nicaragua and visit in this community with Pastor Maximo and his wife, Deaconess Jerryl.
