Medical Backpacks for Amigos for Christ Nurses
One hundred missionaries just traveled to Nicaragua over a two week period in July to work with Amigos for Christ building modern bathrooms. We were encouraged to Play on Purpose, Learn on Purpose, Work on Purpose, Rest on Purpose, Serve on Purpose, and Live on Purpose. The purpose in each case is to make Christ visible.
The missionaries were given an opportunity to make Christ visible while in Nicaragua but were also encouraged to continue and share this practice back home by thinking of other things we to do on purpose.
Because of a need we became of aware of while traveling, the idea of Share on Purpose has come to light. We have been asked to share our resources to provide three medical backpacks to be used by the Amigos for Christ nursing staff. These nurses work to keep the staff of Amigos, visiting missionaries and the Nicaraguans in our work locations healthy.
The total cost of the backpacks is $350. If you are called to share on purpose and play a part in the Nicaraguan Mission trip , please contact Katie Metzger at 408-997-5115 or kmetzger @dsj.org, or drop of a check in any amount made payable to Holy Spirit Church with the memo: “Nurse backpacks”.
