The Nicaraguan Mission Project was begun in 1971, jointly sponsored by the M.V. Society and the Student Association [of Southern Missionary College, now Southern Adventist University].

The goal of the project is for the student missionaries to build a new mission station in the jungle about 75 miles from the eastern coastal town of Puerto Cabezas, in a little village named Francia Sirpi.

The area has a tropical rainy climate--a region of swampy, low plains that are drained toward the Caribbean Sea by three rivers. It is a land inhabited by the Miskito Indians. The student misisonaries have named the mission outpost, "Dawan Pleska," meaning "The Place of God," in the Miskito language.
