Come together with the ProNica Board in Nicaragua for witness, worship and fellowship as we meet with our grassroots partners, explore the beauty of Nicaragua and engage in visioning the future.
For a quarter century, ProNica’s solidarity model has been forged under the care of Southeastern Yearly Meeting. As the ProNica US Board of Directors comes together with our Nicaraguan Board (Consejo), we invite Friends everywhere to join us in exploring the unique challenges, opportunities and direction of our 21st century witness in Nicaragua.
Dates: November 30 - Dec 10 (1st half of trip is Witness Tour, 2nd half is retreat with Board of Directors).
Cost: $1,000 plus airfare.

Space is limited to 15 participants and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“No daylight to separate us. Only kinship. Inching ourselves closer to creating a community of kinship such that God might recognize it. Soon we imagine, with God, this circle of compassion. Then we imagine no one standing outside of that circle, moving ourselves closer to the margins so that the margins themselves will be erased. We stand there with those whose dignity has been denied. We locate ourselves with the poor and the powerless and the voiceless. At the edges, we join the easily despised and the readily left out. We stand with the demonized so that the demonizing will stop. We situate ourselves right next to the disposable so that the day will come when we stop throwing people away.”
― Gregory Boyle
