BLUEFIELDS NICARAGUA FARMS

BPC has been in a covenant partnership for over 20 years with a group of pastors (called APASUR) and their churches from Bluefields, Nicaragua. Over the past few months, Pastor Lora, Steve Ruth and Tom Elander have been participating in monthly Zoom calls with some of the APASUR pastors. Many have contracted COVID-19, including some of the pastors, their family members and their congregants. Many have been very ill and there have been some deaths.
 
The pastors of APASUR are addressing the most basic needs of the people in their community – growing crops to provide food and/or financial independence. The photo below is the APASUR pastors on one of the parcels of land that is being developed for food production. Please join us in praying for our Nicaragua siblings in Christ!
