A special request to raise support for the Mendez family as missionaries leading Compassion in Action in Dario, Nicaragua

Please prayerfully consider increasing your support of Compassion in Action by pledging monthly financial support for our missionary family; Julio, Narlly, Julieta, Abby, and Josias Mendez. This beloved family has been directing the CinA school and ministry in Dario, Nicaragua, and serving sacrificially for our Lord for over 10 years.

Julio and Narlly have been humble servants and excellent stewards of our ministry and its resources, even while rising costs and the closure of their sending church has put them in a position of being substantially underfunded as a missionary family. As per the chart below which summarizes CinA's income and expenses for 2014, CinA has been ensuring the Mendez family financial needs are met by subsidizing their income from the general fund income, and from reserve funds which are now exhausted. Our goal at this time is to raise $2,000 per month on their behalf from individual contributors and churches who will stand beside them as a Christian missionary family for many years to come.

We are asking for this special consideration from many of you who know this family and may even have seen firsthand their effectiveness as servants of our Lord. Julio and Narlly are compassionate and disciplined disciples of Christ, and the fruit of their loving-kindness is evident in the hundreds of lives who have been drawn to a saving relationship with Christ by their witness in Dario, Nicaragua. They are also very generous, discerning wisely, but often attending to the needs of their impoverished neighbors from their own scarce personal finances. Everything you pledge in support will go directly to meet the needs of their family. In future newsletters, we will provide updates to the attached chart in order to show our progress to the $2000 per month support goal. Dear friends, please be generous.
