Our work in Nicaragua is incredibly effective not only in releasing people from the physical aspects of poverty and injustice, but also revealing new doors of opportunity for local churches to be more effective. During a visit in a community with Roberto and World Renew staff from Nicaragua, a pastor shared his story.
“I now see that our church has been so focused on saving souls that we have neglected to show God’s love in action. Now our eyes are opened to see that we must be more active in social justice,” said the pastor. Even in the process of doing a community survey, church members testified how they were changed. “We cannot believe how many assets we have in our community as our six churches work with people to build a better life!” Roberto has been used by God as a liberator who opens eyes by facilitating training in worldviews, vision, values and identifying community assets. As he says, the gospel is not just proclamation but also demonstration! What are you doing today to open doors? How can you support those who do?
