Called “The Land of Lakes and Volcanoes,” thick rainforests, rugged highlands, and beautiful beaches define Nicaragua’s landscape. Its rich history dates back to the Spanish conquistadores. However, hopelessness, addiction, destitution, and poverty plague many in Nicaragua. The poorest nation in Central America, almost 80% of Nicaraguans live on less than $2 a day. One in four Nicaraguans is either starving or suffering from malnutrition. Entire families live on and scrounge for scraps in city dumps. The people of Nicaragua need to know they are seen, loved, and not forgotten by God.
REAP Granada believes that transformation in Nicaragua happens through relationships. These relationships come from various Touchpoints in the community. From meeting people on the basketball court, to visiting them in their homes, to working together on the farm, to discipling men and women in Bible study, Touchpoints drive both the mission and vision to transform lives through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
