Welcome to PML

Supporting community initiatives in León, Nicaragua and fostering relationships and cultural exchange between the people of Nicaragua and Minnesota.


sibl_visit.jpgPML helped facilitate a delegation visit from Second Baptist Church Mount Zion in Leon to their sister church of 22 years, University Baptist Church (UBC) in Minneapolis. PML Director Meredith Wardlaw assisted the five participants in obtaining their US visas. Then new PML Director Elizabeth Moreira provided preparation and orientation and on September 5, accompanied them on their first-ever plane ride, as well as interpreting at vital times during their visit. PML and UBC continue to learn from each other in exploring how to carry out a relationship of mutual respect with partner organizations.
