The Nunes’ family is working with Hispanic ministry at Salem Mennonite Church and Open Arms Hispanic Ministries since June 2006.
The different activities at Salem church with the Hispanics like meals, celebrations and special services as baptism, child dedication, Sunday School class and the sermon in Spanish once a month are drawing a good group of people to worship and fellowship, giving them a new option in their lives. God is changing their hearts and inviting them to a new life full of joy and happiness in Christ Jesus.
The Nunes family can feel God’s hand in their life and their ministry.
