Juanita's story is featured in our 2019 Impact Report. Keep reading for more stories of transformation.

Juanita’s heart is in Nicaragua. It’s in El Shaddai Christian School. The school began as a small community feeding program, but Juanita knew she needed to offer the children more than just food in their stomachs – they needed wisdom in their hearts.

“We started with 45 children and just two benches and some tables. We didn’t have any whiteboards or blackboards. Some friends of mine that were teachers came and worked as teachers for one year with no pay. We started without any money – just the wish to serve.”

“Every year, our enrollment would go up and now we have over 250 students.” Even Juanita couldn’t have anticipated this growth. “So, in 2009, we went to the Ministry of Education to apply to become a school. They told us that they weren’t taking any more schools in, but the Lord provided a miracle, and they accepted us.

It was the happiest day of our lives.”
