Eric and Melissa Weber and their two children Seth and Sage have been serving in Nicaragua since 2009. Eric and Melissa's first trip to Nicaragua was in early the 2000's and they began to lead teams until they felt a call by God to move there. While reading Francis Chan's book Crazy Love, God impressed upon their hearts to leave their business and home in Knoxville, TN and move to Salinas Grandes, Nicaragua. Eric began to preach and teach in churches throughout Nicaragua and hosting mission teams and interns. Since 2013, they have lived in Granada, Nicaragua where their ministry has continued to grow. Their goal is to help pastors and local churches reach their communities with the Gospel of Christ.
Drew and Laura Stockton first came to Nicaragua in the mid 2000's and fell in love with the people's desire for an honest relationship with Jesus Christ. In the midst of absolute poverty seeing other believers say that Christ is enough captivated their hearts. Drew spent many years serving in churches and leading mission teams to Nicaragua. In 2012, Ethan was born and quickly began to do missions with his parents. In 2018, Drew, Laura, and Ethan joined Straight Street full time in Nicaragua bringing gifts of leadership and pastoral training to each of the churches that we support. It is their desire to help plant churches and help pastors grow in their knowledge of the truth. Click here to receive the Stockton Family Newsletter.

Alberto, Ashley, and their three children, Lauren, Jada, and Christopher have been serving in Granada, Nicaragua since September 2016. Alberto was born in Nicaragua and moved to the U.S. at a very young age. Ashley was born and raised in Natchez, MS.
Prior to moving to the mission field, they served at their local church, Life Church West Monroe, where they have served for 16 years in the areas of children's ministry and youth ministry. God placed a deep love for the people of Nicaragua in their hearts. As in Romans 10:13-15, they have a God-given desire to share the good news of the life-changing love of Jesus with those they are called to serve. Their desire is to see that Nicaraguans are saved, discipled, equipped, empowered, and serving Christ. While serving through Straight Street International, their focus will be on equipping local Nicaraguan pastors and leaders to serve their congregations and communities.
