Twenty-six Nazarenes of all ages carried out the first Maximum Missions in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, in late April. 

Maximum Missions is a local evangelism project in which Nazarene Missions International and Missions Mobilization ministries collaborate with a local church. The group shared Jesus with their community while focusing on three main areas: children's evangelism, youth evangelism through sports, and house-to-house evangelism.

Roughly 40 families were visited in their homes, 27 young people were ministered to through Proyecto Gol (Project Gol, a soccer based ministry), and more than 60 children and adolescents were ministered to. The children received a Good Samaritan box containing items such as clothing, sweets, small toys, among others. 

A total of 17 people — 12 teenagers and 5 adults — accepted Christ as their Savior. 

Jacqueline Méndez said that it was a time of great blessing and impact since this was the first evangelistic experience for many of the participants. 

"At the end, everyone was surprised and amazed to see how God used each person, from the smallest to the largest," Méndez said. “God used every willing heart and every detail of this event to reach people in the community.”

She also said participants shared that they felt valued and encouraged to continue participating in this type of evangelistic and missionary activities.

Mayte Yubank, one of the participants, said it was an emotional experience.

“People responded to the call we made to them,” Yubank said. “It was very emotional to evangelize and share the Word of God with the community.” 

Yubanks shared his excitement at seeing the church growing in San Juan.

“I am very grateful to my God, since I am sure that we are living in His will,” Yubank said. "At the end of these two days of service, we left very encouraged and challenged to continue in this important work as missionaries of Christ in our country and in the world."
