Dear Amigos Family,
In the pages that follow, you will see a lot of progress. 2017 was awesome! We love progress, but we love people even more. Why? Because behind every bit of progress is a person that God created in His image. For this reason, Jesus asked us to love one another and to look out for each other
That is why we love the Spanish word JUNTOS (together) so much. It describes how you have come alongside to help Doña Liliam and her great-great grandchildren taste clean water for the first time. It explains why a ditch-witch can’t replace the time spent digging a water line with her, and learning what it is like to be in her shoes. Juntos is a theme at the center of the Lopez Family story (page 8), who are experiencing transformation through Plan 7, our community development model.
You have loved people well in 2017. This is why so much progress has been made. The future is bright in Nicaragua, and in our world. As you read through this annual report, enjoy the good that you made happen, and know that, juntos, we have shined our lights so that our Father in Heaven will be glorified.
Thanks for being part of our family,
Chief Executive Officer
