Teresa's house after the hurricane
Just a few days after we returned to Nicaragua in October, Hurricane Julia devastated the Caribbean coast. It was very sobering to experience this powerful storm and the few minutes of calm as the eye passed directly over our location, followed by even more intense, violent winds as the storm continued on. In its wake, it left incredible destruction. Because of your support, we were able to provide emergency food rations for many families who otherwise would have gone hungry following the hurricane. There is still much that needs to be done in these communities to recover from this storm.
Sponsored students from Puerto Cabezas
We continue to assist the Cohutta church in Tennessee to sponsor needy children in Puerto Cabezas and Bluefields to attend the Adventist school. This past year there were 24 half scholarships and 9 full scholarships for students. Over the past 7 years since we've been assisting with this project over 180 students have received scholarships to assist with their education. These students, some of whom plan to be teachers, doctors, and even a hair stylist are so very grateful for the opportunity to study at an Adventist Christian school. There are always more students needing financial aid than there are scholarships. If you would like to help just mark your donation for "Student Scholarships".
This year we coordinated a dental trip, together with the Lee family and two local dentists, to the remote village of Krin Krin where there had not been a dentist for 6 years. We were able to treat over 130 patients with fillings, extractions, and dental cleanings. It was wonderful to serve these people and to conduct a Vacation Bible School for the children there. In addition, we conducted dental health education in many schools and communities around Nicaragua. Later on in the year, our daughter, Melanie, was able to participate in several dental trips on the Caribbean Grace, a 40 ft catamaran mission boat, that operates along the coast of Nicaragua. Hundreds of families who had no access to dental care received free treatment.

Bible workers ready to deploy
We are so grateful for your support and prayers on behalf of the people of Nicaragua. We are amazed at what God has done! We may never know the full impact until we get to heaven, but we estimate that over 1000 people have been positively affected through the work of MiracleAir in 2022 thanks to your support. Praise God!
