Schlossers speak at Kiwanis Club

Paul and Mikki Schlosser told Kiwanis members that they were called by God to serve as missionaries in Nicaragua.

Nicaragua is about 70 percent of the size of North Dakota, however, more than 7 million people live there. Sixty percent of the population lives on less than 75 cents a day.

The Schlossers started Faith Revealed in 2014. The goal is to help people serve as missionaries when they don't have another organization to go with. Faith Revealed works with 27 churches in western Nicaragua and helps them spread the gospel. Faith Revealed also promoted opportunities for education and employment. Faith Revealed offers short-term missionary work, however, long-term relationships as each church in Nicaragua is partnered with a sister parish in the U.S. 

"Our mission in life is simply to love on people," Mikki said.

Twenty-five people attended the regular Kiwanis meeting on Oct. 9.

Don and Sharon Caine led music. Dr. Alissa Hanson collected “Happy Dollars.”

Kiwanis has raised about $19,000 of its $25,000 Kids Against Hunger goal. Any help is appreciated. Donations can be made at any First Community Credit Union location or at GoFundMe.com/Kids-Against-Hunger-2017.

There's no meeting on Oct. 16. In lieu of it, Kiwanis members are asked to attend the Ag Luncheon on Oct. 17.

Jamestown Kiwanis' mission is serving children and communities of the world. The club is always looking for new members. To learn more, email JamestownKiwanis@gmail.com or visit www.facebook.com/JamestownKiwanis.
