Missions vision is still in an early stage. There are a number of national agencies, linked by Movimiento Misionero Transcultural Nicaraguense (MMTN). This is driving a greater movement not only toward mission sending but toward unity in the churches involved as well. Pray that MMTN might be used of God to bring churches together and to ignite a strong missionary-sending movement.
The expatriate missionary force has changed in its numbers and direction. The major tasks for missionaries are Bible teaching, leadership training and helping Nicaraguans launch holistic ministries that address spiritual, financial and social needs. The largest agencies are AoG, YWAM, BBF, ABWE.
