“This year for my birthday I’m asking for donations to a good cause: Help The Children of Trash Dumps In Nicaragua,” says Jedidiah.
“I had the privilege of personally taking my first trip (the 4th trip for The Desire of All Nations or D.O.A.N.) with my wife, Amber, to Nicaragua in July 2008. During this trip, our lives were radically changed as we ministered to the poor, fed thousands, provided new resources of support and education, and challenged and changed the mindsets of various leaders, business owners, and individuals which have been limited by poverty, war and natural disasters.
It is with great excitement that we have the opportunity to return to Nicaragua, July 17 through August 1st. We will be joining our family and the D.O.A.N. team as they conclude a three-month mission trip in Nicaragua.
We will be helping build a community kitchen that has the capability to serve food to over 300 street children living in one of the largest trash dumps in this country.
We will also be establishing a safe house for homeless youth. This safe house will serve as a refuge for kids who are at risk of being physically, mentally and emotionally abused due to living on the streets. The safe house will provide the opportunity for youth at risk to receive physical and spiritual healing, food, clothing, and education,” adds Thurner.
