Austin Samaritans hosted a family mission trip for Hill Country Bible Church Dripping Springs July 26 through August 2. Lead Pastor Jason McNutt, Executive Pastor Steve Isgitt, and 13 others from the church, including three family groups, spent a week in Nicaragua.
Their hearts were deeply touched by the plight of many women and children, who are not only living in poverty, but who are wounded by physical abuse, sexual abuse and exploitation, abandonment, and malnutrition. As one team member put it, “God has shown us some things that are hard to bear.“ He also reflected, “we see plenty of grace and mercy in action, in the work of people living out their lives to serve ‘the least of these’ “.
We pray for this church as they seek to follow God’s leading in discerning if ministry to the people of Nicaragua is in their future.
