First Presbyterian Church of Wetumpka will host Empower Nicaragua Aug. 30 and 31. The mission was begun by two former Wetumpka residents, Jill (Browder) Vickers and Robin (Browder) Vistnes. They will be joined by several Nicaraguans who assist with the program. The focus of the mission is a movement of education through the Gospel to interrupt the chronic health issues and poverty cycle among a new generation. Empower Nicaragua equips and trains teens to educate and mentor their peers on physical, emotional and social issues. A core group of teen mentors in various rural communities are chosen and trained extensively to become leaders in the Empower Teen Mentor program. Issues of prominent concern in these communities include teen pregnancy, teen STDs, lack of desire to continue education and chronic poverty cycle. All are addressed in the framework of the Gospel. First Presbyterian will hold a casual meet and greet at Nuevo Ranchito (Dutch treat) Aug. 30 at 6:30 p.m. A breakfast will be held Aug. 31 at 9 a.m. at the church, followed by a presentation on Empower Nicaragua. All are welcome to attend either event. Contact the church at 334-567-8135 if additional information is needed.
