Founders and Directors of Seek the Lamb
Michael is the director of Seek The Lamb and actively engaged in Biblical training and discipleship. He is the founder of Rio Coco Beans, a specialty coffee roasting company dedicated to funding Project Ezra, which he and his Miskito friends began in 1986. Michael is the author of Living in the Spiritual World, Just Another Lump of Clay, In The Search Mode, The Vision Behind the Verses, Echoes Into Eternity, and Serving a Cup of Life.
Laura, Michael's wife, is the president of Rio Coco Inc. Her gifting of fundraising began as a jewelry making business and has now grown into managing the Rio Coco Cafes. Her compassionate heart and contagious spirit opens doors to deeply love those whom God has shown. You can hear from her monthly as the writer of "Lamb Bleatings", the most popular section of our newsletter. Laura is the mother of Mikaela, Lukas, Arielle, & Moselle.

Augusto is married to Yunila, and has 9 children. He is also a worship leader for his community. Augusto traveled to Israel in 1997 to an extended study of Biblical Culture with Dr. Randall Smith.
Pastor and Teacher Training
Myrna and Truman (In Memory) Cunningham
Truman was one of the founders of the project, and worked with Michael from November of 1984 to August 2, 2016 when passed away unexpectedly. He is survived by his 8 children and his wife Myrna. He was an elected "senator" of the Autonomous Regional Government of the Atlantic Coast North in Nicaragua for eight years. Truman spent almost a month in Israel in 1997 studying Biblical Culture. He was a well respected leader of the Miskito people, and one of the wisest men we knew! His presence, leadership, and humor are sorely missed by us all. His wife Myrna, continues to oversee the Cunningham household and Project Ezra community.
