Christmas Drive (Bikes for the kiddies in our barrio)


Today we have JOY! We went out into our barrio and gave away bikes and shoes as Christmas presents for some of the most beautiful people in the world! Our semi-rural barrio is full of hard working, intelligent, handsome, strong, humble people… we love them SO MUCH! 

 

For me the pleasure was enriched as we watched our kids who are fatherless and orphaned, who have lived in poverty themselves, gladly give gifts to their neighbours… beautiful moments that made me well.

 

We are now almost halfway through our list for the barrio. Thank you California and Virginia for pushing us further along! If you’d like to donate a bicycle or toy, here are the prices: 

 

Soccer balls/Toy gifts are $5

Baby bikes are $20

Toddler bikes are $30

Bikes for kids aged 3-5 are $45

Bikes for kids aged 5-8 are $55

Bikes for kids aged 8-12 are $65

Bikes for teenagers are $75

Also, hampers for single-parent families are $100

 

We are a third of the way through our Christmas Drive. This is the second chapter. We have already purchased bikes for all of our troupe members. However, we have heaps more to do. 

 

We need to deliver food to many of our families who are desperately in need, we have 3 housing projects for families who literally don’t have a roof over their heads and we are gifting shoes and trampolines to our Street Tricking Schools.

 

Any and every donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated. To donate please visit: www.nicavangelists.com

 

Merry Christmas to you all! ‘Tis the season TO BE JOLLY! I hope you’re all in!

 

Ciao for now,

BRIGHT!


¡G’day a todos!

 

We had a BUMPER super #GivingTuesday yesterday, and raised $350 in total! Special thanks to South Dakota, Texas and Colorado. YAZ R THE BEST! If you’d like to read about what we’re campaigning for, and to see the FUN videos we made throughout the day , please visit our blog: https://nicavangelists.blogspot.com/2021/11/giving-tuesday.html (Thanks for praying for my back… please KEEP PRAYING! LOL! Am so old now… will never jump from the roof again) 

 

We had a BONZA BRIGHT EVENT last Sunday. Was truly terrific. This week we’re calling it DOUBLE OR NOTHING! We want more of everything… Trickers, Dancers, Visitors, Mums & Dads, Food, Games, Singing, DRAMAS, Bible talk, Prayer, Time in the Pool, etc… We talked this morning with Pastor Dan about Agape love, we want more of that too!

 

This coming Sunday, we have our NEWEST BFF from CANADA coming to engage the kids… Have NEVER been so excited in all my life. Truly. We met this lovely lady (And fam) through yet ANOTHER delightful Canadian in San Juan del Sur. (Watch this space... Canadians are TAKING OVER! Just hope they don’t get any crazy ideas like William Walker LOL!) To learn more about how we came to know each other, please visit: https://nicavangelists.blogspot.com/2021/11/thanksgiving.html

 

I don’t want to mess this up, so am not going to be too detailed… but basically Melissa is a teacher of teachers of acrobatics and dance. She’s at the top of her game, and this has been proven by the global demand for her services… 

 

We are incredibly humbled by Melissa for reaching out to us, supporting us financially, giving us her precious time (She came and watched “our show” twice, plus we basically spent an entire weekend with her and fam… she’s coming to spend this weekend with us here in Managua, too), and being a constant positive encouragement. 

 

Melissa is a Christian Expat in Nicaragua, an entrepreneur, who specializes in dance and acrobatics… do you get what I’m saying??? Could this be any better??? This partnership IS GOLD, INVALUABLE, so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers this weekend, as we come together…

 

We’re keen to make this time special, and so are doubling up on everything… we’re asking mums and dads to come to this week’s BRIGHT events… we’re getting a second bus, we’re buying double the food, we’re practicing twice as hard. We will need to raise $200 to pull this off, so please believe with us for more miracles… if you want to help, please donate at: www.nicavangelists.com

 

Alrighty then treasures, that about wraps things up!

 

Toodle-looh,
