- Nicaragua, has been a country of emphasis for Brookwood since 2004. It is exciting to be returning to Nicaragua to serve the wonderful people in Cedro Galan, Mt Sinai and Casa Jesus communities.  Click here  for application. Click here for prayer sheet.

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, we will place our focus on the birth of Jesus and getting ready for that big celebration. Christmas music will fill the halls, trees will go up, lights will sparkle, glitter will fly and fingers will get glued together as the children make ornaments and gifts for their moms and dads. The excitement will be off the chart!!
