“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” [John 15: 1-5]

Nicaragua was still reeling from the effects of the civil unrest in 2019 when the Covid-19 pandemic struck. And now two hurricanes have struck within a couple weeks of each other. More than 60,000 people have been left homeless and there is an urgent need for medicine, food, and clothing as well as shelter.
The Western PA- Nicaragua partnership has been working with two Methodist missionaries in the country to provide emergency disaster relief.
If you would like to help our brothers and sisters in Nicaragua, please send your contribution to the church office with the memo, "Nicaragua disaster relief."
Please include the people of Nicaragua in our prayers.
If you have any questions, contact Rich Schall at 755-4408.
