SI Nicaragua launched an English tutoring site in January 2022.
English classes are offered to students through the public schools but as you may know, English can be a challenging language to learn with its unpredictable spelling and grammar. Throughout the last few years, parents have reached out seeking additional educational resources for their children. Through much prayer and discussion, the Lord provided a way. Joseph Delgado, who was recently working at the sports ministry site, went back to school and received a degree in English Education. This opened the door for SI to offer classes where students could gather and learn together.
Today, the tutoring site is serving 75 students between the ages of 8 and 17. The goal of the tutoring site is to strengthen a child’s academic abilities through reading and writing in the English language. This is done through engaging kids in games, songs and one-on-one teaching. We believe this will help give children the foundational confidence and motivation to conquer a new language. More than that, it is a safe space for children to hear the gospel message and feel God’s love.
Join us in thanking God that there is a place where 75 students are being reached with the gospel. Pray that the lives of these students would be radically changed by His word and His love.
Grateful for you,
The SI Team
