NEW CHILDREN'S ORPHANAGE
 
Casa Bernabé started with just a few children back in the 80's. During the Sandinista/Contra conflict the numbers grew. After the turmoil within the country ended and the United States left the eastern coast of Nicaragua, there was little to sustain the economy. The region went from poor to poorer resulting in a growing orphan population. Many men left the area looking for work, never to return. The women were left behind, struggling to raise their children without an income.

The Verbo Church, under the direction of Pastor Earl and Damaris Bowie, operates Casa Bernabé. They were both working for an orphanage in Managua, Nicaragua before they were married, also under the Verbo Church. It wasn't long after they were married that they were asked by the


Verbo Church to move to Puerto Cabezas to take on the church there that had recently been left in shambles by a former pastor. The time that followed took great dedication, perseverance, love and patience to wait on the Lord to rebuild that small body of believers. As the church continued to grow and flourish so did the orphanage, at least in numbers.

Great News! As of December 25, 2012 the girls portion of the orphanage is complete. Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, Colorado continues to raise resources for a new dining hall, kitchen and community room and as a final phase a new home for the boys, which will be a duplicate of the girls building.
