Empowered to Serve

When the damage is extensive, what do you do first? That was the question Loyd Miguel had to ask as he visited the village of Bilwi. Much of the area was flattened by back-to-back hurricanes along the eastern coast of Nicaragua. Loyd had been entrusted to oversee the recovery efforts of Missionary Ventures and other ministries in this area – a big job, but he had been trained and empowered to use the Lord’s wisdom to help those who needed it most. There were emergency meals to provide, wells to be cleaned, and houses to help rebuild, which involved providing the tin roof for a family after the walls were up. This was working well in several other areas.  

But in Bilwi, Loyd met a family who broke his heart.
