Jim & Nancy Hartsock
Jim and Nancy Hartsock have a passion and love for the people of Central America. They have spent many years serving on the field in Honduras and in Guatemala. They also adopted a, now young adult, Guatemalan little girl. They have both have extensive medical training and experience.
After several years of challenging health issues, living in the secular world, and now retired and they are ready to face the next chapter of their lives.
What is next?
They were never released from the call of missions on their lives and have continued to be involved taking trips when possible, serving on the mission’s committee at church and, most recently, teaching English as a second language to Spanish speakers. God has continued to deal with the call on their lives to the point where now they now have a chance to work ‘full time’ for Him again.
Past experience has shown that most Guatemalans, Hondurans & Nicaraguans want to be able to use the English language. This is especially a desire for their children. They have seen that there is also a need in a lot of small churches in Central America for Sunday school for their children as well. So why not put both of these things together to make something “work together for good to them that know the Lord”? They want to use teaching English as a means to start some SS type teaching in these church settings. God directed them to get certified to teach some Basic English.
It is their desire to try to help establish a work in Nicaragua.
They want to use the opportunity of teaching English to share the gospel!
They are going to need God’s help to continue to do what God has led them to do…
You can partner with them by:
- Holding them up in prayer
- Providing financial support as God leads.
- Going to Nicaragua to stand with them to do what He has put before them.
