Great photos and coordination Maria! We are super thankful for the collaboration with Furia Santa Center, a ministry that works with recovering addicts and gang members. In the United States, “rehab” facilities are easily accessible and most families provide support to their loved ones while in recovery. In Nicaragua, where families struggle to provide the basic needs to survive, a family member with an addiction or gang association weighs down the already struggling family. Young men come to the center ashamed and with no sense of self-worth. At Furia Santa, they learn of God’s redeeming love and mercy. The men also learn vocational skills to provide them with the ability to secure a job when they leave the center. ... See MoreSee Less

This one’s for you Brad! Once again a beautiful C5 from Travis AFB touches down in Managua today, this time with 2 ambulances, 3 fire trucks, and 1 tractor from Wisconsin for W/NP Firefighters United! The gathering of vehicles and the transport has been years in the making, and we are grateful for all the people from California, Texas, South Carolina, Minnesota, Virginia, Nicaragua, Wisconsin (and probably a few other places too) that have come together for the good of others. Thank you everyone - it's a team effort! ... See MoreSee Less
"...We would love to see it (turnout gear) go to good use as it’s in good shape with lots of life left in it." replied Turner, a lieutenant with Elk Mound Fire District.
We really appreciate the Fire Departments throughout the state sharing with each other about the connections Wisconsin has with Nicaragua. It takes a team and we thank all who help with the transport and shipping preparation, in this case, Chuck Hill, W/NP Board Member from Eau Claire. 👩🚒💪👩🚒😀👩🚒❤️👩🚒 ... See MoreSee Less
