Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

It is a privilege for EMI to be able to partner with Familia Avance with the development of a Master Plan for a sustainable agriculture and youth camp. Rancho Nicaragua will provide place where kids can come to camp and learn about the love of God and where local farmers can come and learn about sustainable agriculture.

Es un privilegio para EMI poder asociarse con Familia Avance con el desarrollo de un Plan Maestro para un campamento de jóvenes y agricultura sostenible. Rancho Nicaragua proporcionará un lugar donde los niños pueden venir al campamento y aprender sobre el amor de Dios y donde los agricultores locales pueden venir y aprender sobre la agricultura sostenible.

Project Scope

Complete Description

Rancho Nicaragua is located in northern Nicaragua near the Honduras border.  Rancho Nicaragua will be a place for youth camps, pastoral training and team building events.  Additionally, the camp will be growing the food required for the camp on site and providing training for the local community on sustainable agriculture approaches.

The property is a 45-acre site in the northern hills of Nicaragua.  The vision for Rancho Nicaragua is to have a rustic camp setting where youth from around Nicaragua can come and experience nature and be introduced to a new perspective of the love of God.

This project will be led by EMI’s Nicaragua Office.  It is possible that we will be working with local designers, so experience speaking Spanish and English would be helpful.

The last couple years have been very difficult for the country of Nicaragua.  This project, will provide an opportunity for you to walk alongside a ministry that is making a difference in the lives of Nicaraguan people every day, people who need hope.   Will you join EMI Nicaragua in designing a world of hope?

Rancho Nicaragua se encuentra en el norte de Nicaragua, cerca de la frontera con Honduras. Rancho Nicaragua será un lugar para campamentos juveniles, capacitación pastoral y eventos de formación de equipos. Además, el campamento cultivará los alimentos necesarios para el campamento en el sitio y brindará capacitación a la comunidad local sobre enfoques de agricultura sostenible.

La propiedad es un sitio de 45 acres en las colinas del norte de Nicaragua. La visión de Rancho Nicaragua es tener un campamento rústico donde los jóvenes de toda Nicaragua puedan venir y experimentar la naturaleza y ser introducidos a una nueva perspectiva del amor de Dios.

Este proyecto será liderado por la oficina de EMI en Nicaragua. Es posible que estemos trabajando con diseñadores locales, por lo que la experiencia de hablar español e inglés sería útil.

Los últimos dos años han sido muy difíciles para el país de Nicaragua. Este proyecto le brindará la oportunidad de caminar junto a un ministerio que está haciendo una diferencia en las vidas de los nicaragüenses todos los días, personas que necesitan esperanza. ¿Te unirás a EMI Nicaragua para diseñar un mundo de esperanza?
