Their Nicaragua… God’s Nicaragua
SuNica is a name that embodies the idea that Nicaragua is Your Nicaragua, or better yet,
it’s God’s Nicaragua, and we should care for it as such. It is the Western Hemisphere’s second most impoverished nation, where only one in five students graduate high school. Over 90% of girls will become pregnant by age 19, and nearly half of rural citizens live without an improved water source. Despite the educational and public health burdens these statistics demonstrate, the need for the Gospel of Jesus is perhaps even more significant.
We started SuNica after witnessing kids picking through trash in the middle of a school day. It changed our lives, and we have been learning and growing ever since...

Our Community Development Model
Every project we take on is all about making disciples of Jesus. Our discipleship staff serves hundreds of
children in three different communities, acting as much-needed role models, providing love and
encouragement, and demonstrating the transformative power of the Gospel.
Water & Sanitation
It is a two-year process to provide this basic need that is vital to human flourishing. Once clean water is flowing, a modern bathroom project follows.
Education & Mentoring
We engage the staff in spiritual direction, the staff conducts the same with their volunteer leaders, and they facilitate spiritual direction for future leaders.
The epicenter of our Mentorship/Discipleship programming — where children and parents can safely gather to have fun, learn, and grow in their faith.
