Four Dinners featuring Carlos Coffin a great success!
The recent dinner tour featuring keynote Carlos Coffin from Nicaragua was richly blessed by the Lord. Efforts are now underway to have Carlos come and speak for two dinners in the USA (Pompton Plains, NJ and Grand Rapids, MI) since the ambassador from Nigeria to Canada, the original keynote speaker, had to cancel due to emergency meetings in Nigeria. Carlos meets with US embassy officials on Wednesday to request a visa for a brief visit. Please pray that the Lord will open doors for Carlos to come to speak in the USA.

Carlos Coffin oversees projects in Nicaragua. He was recently invited by Word & Deed to Canada (and now the USA) to give a powerpoint presentation about his work and that of his team in Nicaragua.

Below are some pictures of the recent dinners.
