Nicaragua MDC: Dec. 11-16, 2023 (2360)
Trip Focus: Delivery of Manos de Cristo boxes from OHC Spanish Worship, Westside, and the Mi Familia business.
Oak Hill’s Short Term Mission Teams partner with Scott Felder and Steve Bakos with The Messiah Project. The Messiah Project ministry began several years ago, established to minister & train native Nicaraguan Christian leaders to bring spiritual, emotional, and physical help to meet the needs of the people in many areas of the country.
The OHC STM team coordinates the collection of the “Manos de Cristo” Christmas boxes from our Spanish congregation and Westside Campus, and the distribution of the boxes to the villages in Nicaragua. We share the story of Jesus’ birth, facilitate crafts, and participate with daily feeding centers in each village.
