This is a message from Grace2F members Tim and Katie Adams…

Dear Friends,

A little over two years ago we launched the Verbo-Nicaragua Development Fund (VNDF) to support our friends’ (Bob & Myra Trolese) ministry in Nicaragua.  We filed the paperwork, put up a website, and started letting people here in the U.S. know all that the folks in Verbo-Nicaragua Ministries have been doing for the past 30 years to make the reality and hope of the gospel practical to impoverished people in Nicaragua.  We didn’t have a grand strategy or a paycheck.  But we knew we had a calling and a Provider.  It has been nothing short of amazing to see what God has done through VNDF – through YOU – in these short two years.  We have stories to tell you, we have a vision to share, and we have a need to put before you. 

Since we began VNDF we have never taken a paycheck for the work we do.  Katie and I have raised some personal support but we have both worked a patchwork of full- and part-time jobs to meet our family’s needs.  This summer God moved powerfully in our family in several ways and in VNDF.  We want to share with you how we believe – and our partners in Nicaragua have affirmed – that God is calling us to step out in faith to work at VNDF full-time.  The work has grown beyond what we can do on a part-time/occasional basis. 

We will be holding a dessertto tell you (and show you through video!) where VNDF is headed and our family’s next steps.  We would also love for you to meet the newest member of our family – Karina Tatiana whom we met at the Puenta de Amistad orphanage in Managua 6 years ago and who come to be with us just five short weeks ago!  We are excited about what God is doing and want to thank you in person for all the ways you have blessed us by praying, going, and giving.  We want you to taste and see how the Lord really is good.  And we’re going to make it a very tasty event with some delicious Nicaraguan coffee and tres leches cake!  The dessert will be:

Wednesday, December 1 @ 7:00 p.m. at the home of Carlos & Leigh Ellen Rodriguez (873 Old Cutler Road)

You can respond by dropping us an email ( or giving us a call (496-0425).  If your schedules don’t permit you to attend the dessert let us know if we could grab coffee with you at another time to thank you in person and share our plans going forward. 

We look forward to sharing a fun evening with you!

Tim & Katie Adams
