God's Treasures (Tesoros de Dios)

God's Treasures reaches out to handicapped children and their families in the poverty stricken outskirts of Nicaragua’s capital. God's Treasures is located in Bradley's House of Hope where Physical therapy, patterning and equestrian therapy are combined with tender loving care to give the poorest of poor HOPE for the day. This ministry is fully funded by the donations of people in local churches and other organizations.

Sponsorships are available to help support the children and their families. If you would like to donate to God's Treasures you may do so through our online giving page or by sending a check to FUMC, 110 W. Franklin St., Troy, Ohio, 45373.

reading, and assist with the Christmas Gala. As church members we also help

provide school supplies, clothing and shoes, and assist in paying school fees.

Project Chacocente

Project Chacocente is a ministry that reaches out to and supports families as

they relocate out of Nicaragua’s city dump to a countryside community , where

new beginnings can be realized. Families learn community living and life skills to

support their families, while their children attend on onsite school. Sponsorships

are available to help support these families as they restart their lives in a new

setting.
