As part of our ministry, we host teams at our ministry property, Quinta Esperanza, in Diriamba, Nicaragua.


 The focus of our church and ministry is on children and youth. We encourage short-term mission teams to come  and reach out to these children most of whom do not receive enough love and encouragement in their homes  and also lack physical items such as uniforms, school materials, shoes, clothing and food.


 It is our hope that short-term missionaries will form bonds with these children and will desire to sponsor a child to  help cover his/her basic needs.      


 In addition, we pray that Quinta Esperanza, as a place of hope for needy children, will touch your hearts and you  will desire to underwrite the ministry.  In this way, we can continue to provide a wholesome refuge for children  where they can play football and other sports, use our play area, be cared for during the day and fed the word of  God. 


 We also need to continue to pay our staff at our Preschool, “Jesus’ Little Seedlings”, which has operated for 9  years and, with help from our friends, will continue in 2018.  We had to close this year due to lack of funding.  It  was sad for everyone involved.    


 Quinta Esperanza has two dormitories which can accommodate 22 people in each dorm and a mission’s house  which can accommodate 10 people and has private bathrooms and a kitchen.  There are a total of 54 beds. 


 There is also a large kitchen and dining area next to the church.  The church can hold 250 people.
