Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti are working with the Baptist Theological Seminary in Nicaragua, accompanying them in the program of informal theological education in the churches of the Baptist Convention of Nicaragua and as writers of curriculum material for the Seminary. They have been long-term missionaries serving through our mission society since 2000. They and their children live in the land of lakes, volcanoes, poets, and contrasts. Nicaragua is situated in Central America. It is politically divided in 15 departments and 2 special regions. It has a population of 5.5 million people. The capital city is Managua, which has a higher population density. The Baptist Convention of Nicaragua is present in all departments with its 240 churches organized in 9 regions, 4 organizations, and 5 institutions and programs. Carlos and Mayra communicate with their churches and partners through their updates, Acts in Action--BGsEnRoute, available regularly. They seek each day to show others God’s love and mercy, as a reality. They consider it a wonderful privilege to be able to serve God and to practice what the Lord placed in their hearts: "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.” (Romans 12:15 NKJV)
