Ktizo UCC, Phoenix

In 2009, Ktizo Church (formerly the Church of the Beatitudes, Phoenix) — a vibrant, diverse, progressive community of faith — established a Covenant Partnership with La Flor, a small, isolated Nicaraguan community.

La Flor lies at the top of a mountain, and the only access is a ½-mile long, steep, rocky footpath. These partners have hosted delegations from Nicaragua and sent teams to help build a community center and a clean water system with the families in La Flor. They helped establish a community general store and are continuing to work with the community leaders on sustaining it. They are also working to improve access to health care and building latrines.
