Elim is pleased to announce a ministry outreach trip to Nicaragua June 10- 16, 2012!
Over 6,000 children with developmental disabilities live in Managua, Nicaragua. These children rarely get the opportunity to go to school, play with their peers, or get the therapy they need and deserve. Michelle Adams has been living and serving in this city for over eight years now. Elim has had the privilege of getting to know Michelle and the work God has called her to in Managua. Much of Michelle’s time in Managua is invested in expanding the love and service for people with disabilities through Tesoros de Dios.
Tesoros de Dios, translated as "God's Treasures," is a ministry in Managua, Nicaragua, that serves over 80 children with a variety of developmental disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Hydrocephaly, Autism, Brain Damage, and others. Most children served at Tesoros de Dios come from low-income families, many living in very poor conditions that are not conducive to their health conditions. Through programs offered and family support, the center provides tools to help the children reach their fullest potential physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
