“Siete Sur Ministries, Inc”

I personally would like to thank Evermore, on behalf of the team who just returned from Nicaragua, for your prayers for us while we were serving there. Many of you may not know about our ministry - Siete Sur Ministries, Inc. (a 501c3 faith based non-profit organization). We have been serving in Nicaragua for the last 18 years in the area of Siete Sur, a suburb of the capital city, Managua. We now travel there approximately three to four times a year.

Marvelous God


“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  You have set your glory above the heavens.  When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?”  Psalm 8:1, 3-4  

"What do you weep for?"

“What do you weep for?”

41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

Luke 19:41-44

The Climate of Youth Sports

The state of youth sports in America is either booming or suffering, depending on which box score you’re checking.  You could follow the money. Kids’ sports is a nearly $17 billion industry, which makes it larger than the business of professional baseball and approximately the same size as the National Football League. Or you could follow the kids. The share of children ages 6 to 12 who play a team sport on a regular basis declined from 41.5 percent in 2011 to 37 percent in 2017, according to a recent report from the Aspen Institute.

Wooster Church Plant

Dear friends at Evermore,

             For the past three months, Ryan and I have been attending Southside Community Church in Wooster as part of a church planting team. So many of you have graciously asked us about our experience and how the church is doing. Thank you! Thank you for your interest and your questions. Ryan and I came up with a Top Five list of observations and reflections. These are somewhat random and not in any particular order, so here goes.

The Hands and Feet of Jesus


One couple shared that the tornado had done a lot of damage to their house.  There was no one to help them.  They decided to pray for God’s help that He would send someone to help.  Five minutes later the phone rang.  It was MDS wondering if they could help. 

Another person said, “God sent His angels when the Mennonites showed up.  My faith in God has been restored.  I am going back to church”.
