Solidarity Concert for Nicaragua – August 24, 2018
The Eyes to See (Is2c) mission group at Seekers Church is sponsoring this concert because one of our members, Oswaldo Montoya, is part of the peaceful protest movement in Nicaragua.

We hope it will inspire action where that’s appropriate, and prayers for peace and justice everywhere.
