What a blessed month we have had at PCA. God continues to provide for our bathroom project and the kids are doing wonderfully. Though we have had several attacks from the enemy this month, we are encouraged by this. We know the Devil does not attack unless God is about to do something big. So, we are eagerly awaiting what God is about to do through our ministry and through His people who are working with us to ensure the Gospel is shared and 115 children in Palacaguina have a strong future in Him!
Our newest ministry partner in Palacaguina is confirming God has called her to love and serve the children of PCA. We are super grateful for her heart and for her serving with us. She is already making an impact and has started teaching the English classes in 1st and 2nd grade. Thank you Lord for sending great servants like Brianna.
WORLD RACE TEAM
In addition, this month we were blessed to have a World Race Team serving in Palacaguina and at PCA. Every day they came to work with our students helping them learn English and playing with them. What a blessing to have these incredible women loving on our students. Our children love visitors!!
This December 1st – 8th, I will be in Titusville, Florida. I am super excited to reconnect with so many of you who are such a wonderful part of PCA and all God is doing in Palcaguina. There will be more details to come in the next update, but we are looking to plan an event Saturday the 7th. I hope you will mark your calendars. Please let me know if you would like me to speak to your tribe about all God is doing at PCA.
INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
Our students participated in two Independence Day parades this year; one for the preschool and one for primary. These are wonderful yearly events that include bands and dancing. For both parades, we participated with a band and dancers from PCA. What a fun opportunity for our students.
The bathrooms are really starting to come together. We are only $6,025 away from completely finishing this $24,175 project. Praise God!!! We hope you can share our joy with these pictures of PCA’s positive growth and becoming one step closer to finishing the primary school.
Please pray specifically for these areas and that God will provide for each need.

We gladly introduce to you two our children needing sponsorship at PCA. Sponsoring a child not only provides a quality education, but a meal every day, uniforms, books and supplies to help them stay in school. Please share with others the opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a child. A sharable page is provided along with this update.

- God to move on hearts as we plan our 2020 mission trips
We are always so amazed each month as we experience and see all God is doing through PCA and in the lives of the people of Nicaragua. We are humbled that God has chosen us to be a part of such a magnificent work for His kingdom and how he has brought so many wonderful people into our lives to make it all possible. God owns everything, but in His grace God entrusts to us what is already His so that we can be a part of what He is doing. It is truly amazing! And we are grateful for your faithfulness to be a part of what God is doing in Palcaguina.
Dios te bendiga de la familia Witonski!!! (God Bless you from the Witonski family)
