2019 Update on CHE Leaders Dania Jimenez and Jose Luis Jimenez

CHE ministry in a new community may begin with the general community, a church, or with a family. In the Jicaro, Nueva Segovia communities the Jimenez family have been key in the development of a ministry that:

Has impacted 6 communities

Has 300 children in discipleship classes

500 women working in CHE

100 women have their own businesses as a result of CHE training

30 men are making hammocks (thanks to classes through CHE)

Communities have successfully worked on community projects, such as:

A well

A school



Efficient Wood Stoves


Child feeding stations, which include scholastic support

We can say truthfully that God uses families in the transformation of their communities.


The Jimenez family includes the 2 CHE Area leaders: brother and sister, Jose Luis (wearing blue) and Dania (in pink). God has given them the strength to face difficulties, as well as love and patience in their work.

Their mother, Lila, Mama Lila to all of us, and their father, Don Tulio, have welcomed CHE trainers from other part of the country, and accommodated everyone at, what must have been, considerable inconvenience. Tania, their younger sister, participates in CHE trainings, and helps her mother produce delicious meals to be consumed on their wide, shady porch.

Masiel, in red, is a capable young farmer, often to be seen bringing the cows home. The family has farmed there for over 50 years, always planting corn and beans. This year, the bean crop did very poorly, so Masiel decided to try tomatoes, with seeds provided by ECHO in Florida. (echo.org) So far, the plants are doing well, so we ask God to provide a bountiful harvest.

“One of the things I love most about CHE is that the ministry enters the community like Jesus entered communities, without excluding anyone.  The women who come are a testimony  of how CHE Entered the community.  CHE is acting upong the Great Commission – I love it!

CHE ministry works without thinking of denominations, or of social classes. For example, we have Catholics, evangelicals, and non-believers all working together: there is good communication, and we have good relationships. We look for those in the community who really need the gospel, instead of staying with the Christians.

Before becoming involved in CHE, I thought that people had to go to evangelical /Protestant churches. Now I have learned to say – yes, go to your church, pray, give your life to Jesus – God has a purpose for your life – without insisting that someone change their church…

Yes, I love CHE! And now my husband (Pastor Alejandro) wants to see CHE start in Esteli! And that is because of what he saw in the CHE ministry on Ometepe when our family was part of a team visiting the island. (They were there with Anne and Bill’s team in February.)”
