Casa Bernabé Orphanage Project in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua
"The religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress". James 1:27 NIV
I would like to take this time and share with you some of the Ministries we are involved in.
In 2010 I took 2 mission trips to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua with a group of men from Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, CO. Below are a couple of videos to show some of the impressions we gathered during these amazing trips. Puerto Cabezas is one of the poorest regions in Nicaragua with 80% unemployment. In 2007 Hurricane Felix pretty much destroyed most of the infrastructure, housing and job opportunities these people had. (Read full article).
There is a tremendous need, especially among children, for safe housing, clean drinking water, food and spiritual guidance. If you want to get involved or even if you just want to see some of the children from the orphanage, please go to their website at www.casabernabe.net. It's fun to see all the children's faces and to read about their likes and dislikes. Also you can read about additional ministries like the Verbo Schools, the Clean Water Ministry, the Coco River Ministry and other great projects supporting the local community.
I am planning to join another mission trip to Puerto Cabezas in October 2011.

Shining Star Prison Ministry
"...you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life." Philippians 2:15-16
Once a week on Friday's at 7 pm a group from Cherry Hills Community Church and a group from South East Christian Church visits the Arapahoe Community Treatment Center (ACTC) in Englewood, Colorado to bring the Word of Christ to the inmates housed in the facility. In addition to the weekly Bible Studies we have recently started to have monthly movie nights and even a couple of barbeques. This ministry is only 1 year old and already God has given us many opportunities to bring hope and love to these men who otherwise have very few positive roll models in their lifes.
