Our group laid the foundation and erected the steel necessary for a
permanent structure for this church. The building will be completed
by First Baptist Matagalpa this spring. This will allow this church

Our group not only did construction but also had the privilege of going
into two schools and working and playing with the children and we
were allowed to present the gospel to over 300 children. At night at
three different mission points around the city, we showed the Jesus
film. One location was in a community about 20 minutes from the city
where First Baptist Matagalpa has established, a Sunday School that
meets in a home with 60 regular attendees. Each night we showed the
Jesus film we had 100 to 200 adults and children attend. In addition
