Since 1998 Lutheran Hour Ministries-Nicaragua has operated as Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones. From its ministry center in Chinandega, it shares the Gospel with the citizens of this Central American country of about six million people. Recently, its satellite office in Matagalpa concluded a series of Bible courses it was offering kids in elementary schools. Along with the Bible course certificates these children received for their participation, they were given toys from the Orphan Grain Train.
Lutheran Hour Ministries-Nicaragua utilizes Project JOEL, Equipping the Saints (ETS), Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC), holistic ministry projects and prison visits in this extremely poor country, which has experienced years of corrupt dictatorship, natural disasters, revolution and civil war.
