and support missionaries through prayer, intercession, and giving. For every one
person "on the field", it takes countless others at home.

We love the countries in Latin America
where God has called us to serve. We love the people and the
culture. It is a great pleasure and joy to serve God in this way.
On the other hand, we sometimes get homesick for our family and friends. Often,
during a particularly trying time, we have received an e‑mail, a letter, or even a phone call from one of you,
which has lifted our spirits and encouraged us. We enjoy receiving a Scripture, a prayer, an encouraging word, or just
a letter telling us how you are doing.

Father Heart Missions welcomes gifts intended for use
by a specific ministry or program. We offer the following information for your consideration
and prayer as you plan such a gift.
To target your support toward any of the specific ministry needs below, simply
e-mail us (using Contact Us page). Let us know
what you are sending—whether by mail or online (see above)—and with what
specific sponsorship in mind.
The NEW YOUTH CENTER is helping us reach more kids, youth, and even adults for the Lord. It is a wholesome place for them to hang out, and it keeps them off the streets. But, this new blessing comes with added costs.
Please consider helping us, and also spread the word to others who are not yet partners with
us. To donate specifically for the NEW YOUTH CENTER, simply enclose a note, or otherwise let us know what the gift is for. (Remember, please do not write in the memo section of your check.)
Anything you can give (whether all or part) is a blessing, and much appreciated! But, above all else,
please pray for us.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have closed the Youth Center for the
safety of the children and their families. With many out of work and hungry,
we are providing food packages for families to prepare at home. To help with
this immediate need:
$25 will buy a small food package
$35 will buy a larger food package
Any amount, great or small, will help us feed more families! Thank
* Weekly (formal) program provides about 100
children with a nutritious, balanced meal every Saturday.
* Daily (informal) program feeds up to 30 of the neediest
children a snack or meal daily as we are able.
Your one-time gift of $300 will cover all of the above needs
of the program for a full month (an average of 30¢/meal).
Your monthly recurring gift of $30 will directly sponsor
twelve of these hungry children.
Many in Pancasán lack the basics
for health, nutrition, and hygiene. Donations targeted to Mercy Missions help
provide poor children with:
- toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap
- essential medicine such as pain killers, antibiotic ointments, lice
- used clothing
- dental or doctor visits
Cost: Any amount—large
or small, one-time or recurring—will
help this ministry.
Even $1 from a child's allowance is a blessing to these people!
By way of the Body, we touch the Soul.
We ask that you please contact us first, before donating items. Shipping and import tax
often make this type of donation cost-prohibitive.
|Send a Child to School|
Some children are too poor to buy school supplies and
therefore cannot attend. Others have to work.
You can sponsor a child for the coming year, with a Scholarship that covers government-required uniforms, school supplies, and matriculation fees.
Cost: $80 per
child for one year. The Nicaraguan school
year is January through December.
In return, we send you a photo and letter from the child you are
If you gave last year, please let us know if you want to participate
in the sponsorship program again this year.
Help us to give the poorest children of Bluefields a Christmas!
We want to bless 150 of our children, plus 100 children from the garbage dump neighborhood, with a Christmas party---complete with games, piñata, gifts, and most importantly, the Christmas message! Can you please partner with us in this effort?
Cost: $5 gives one child a Merry Christmas; $50 sponsors ten children; $100 sponsors twenty children.
Please add to your contribution a prayer that the Lord will provide $1,250 so that we can bless all of the children here at Christmas. ($750 for our neighborhood of Pancasán, and $500 for the garbage dump neighborhood.)
