Meet the Tingles - On Their Way to Nicaragua!

Wayne and Megan Tingle and their two daughters, Alison 6, and Emily 3, are preparing to move to Nicaragua as LifeLink missionaries. The Tingles attended missionary training in Mexico as part of their preparation for becoming missionaries.

Wayne's background as a business owner in the building construction and landscape industry will be a great benefit working at the LifeLink Ministry Base. Wayne also is a musician and worship leader at their home church in Orlando, FL. Megan's degrees in communication and English as well as her experience in editing, creative writing and teaching will be a huge addition to the education aspect of the ministry in Nicaragua.

The ministry of LifeLink International is excited to welcome the Tingles.

LifeLink Donates Sports Equipment to New Youth Program in Ciudad Sandino

The City of Sandino, which is where the LifeLink Ministry Base is located, has become a haven for gangs and drugs. In an effort to curtail the problem, the City of Sandino has started a new program working with high risk youth to get them involved in sports and off the streets.

LifeLink donated soccer and baseball equipment for the program, and will work in conjunction with the City of Sandino and the mayor's office to help in their effort.

Pictured above with the donated equipment are two directors of the new sports program along with LifeLink Int'l President Mike Turner (center).

Building the Wall

The security wall at the LifeLink Ministry Base in Ciudad Sandino, just outside of Managua, is nearing completion.

For almost one year we've been working, raising funds and building the 10 foot high security wall. Constructed of heavy block cut from the Nicaragua ground, the front portions of the wall are metal tubing as will be the main entrance gates. Because of the area the ministry base is located in and because of safety issues with children and staff, the security wall is a necessity.

Thanks to all who have partnered together with us in the "wall project". May God richly bless you many times over!
