Church to go to aid of Nicaragua city again

From Michigan-

While visiting Catarina, Nicaragua, this year with a delegation from her Ann Arbor church, Shani McLoyd was so moved by the plight of the disabled residents there she quickly spearheaded efforts to gather items they needed."

So, McLoyd and other members of the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation were devastated to hear that a busload of items destined for the Central American community were stolen in Guatemala and the drivers beaten.

Despite the setback, the church is seeking new donations and will study different ways to ship the goods, including sending them from Florida, to families in Catarina, with whom Episcopal Church of the Incarnation members have forged relationships.

“We’re confident we’ll get down there one way or another,” said Marshall Thomsen, vice chairman of the Nicaragua Project board, who also is active with Episcopal Church of the Incarnation.
