Message from Eric Paulsen


Welcome to the Hope for Nicaragua website!

God is doing great things in Nicaragua and we are so privileged to be a part of this mission! I hope you will prayerfully consider joining this team through praying, giving, or going. Let me know how I can assist you as you explore the options for you to be a part of this great work! 

For the Gospel,

About Our Mission


Our ultimate goal in this mission is sharing the Gospel and the hope of Jesus Christ while ministering to the medical needs of the Nicaraguan people. Their needs are great, and we know that without the contributions of missions teams, these men, women and children may not otherwise have an opportunity to receive care from a doctor, nurse, or dentist. We equip our teams to serve these people’s physical and spiritual needs, bringing real, eternal hope to the beautiful people of Nicaragua.

We have many different field team positions, many of which do not require medical experience. Regardless of your assignment, you will find yourself connected to a team who all share the same job title: missionary.

On this trip, you will experience an amazing week that a hundred social media posts, ten thousand words, and a million megabytes on your memory card will never be able to fully explain. The memory of what you experience this week will bless you and refresh you in ways that will always be stored in your heart. More than that, your true treasures from the trip are in heaven!

If a field assignment isn’t for you this year, please consider supporting us as part of our “sending team”. The logistics involved in preparing a clinic that will treat thousands of Nicaraguans in one week requires massive contributions or resources and volunteers. From fundraising through crafting to car washes, and to packaging medications to placing purchase orders, we have many needs. Wherever you serve, know that the nation of Nicaragua will be blessed through you.

Are you involved in missions in your current church? This opportunity is still for you! Hope for Nicaragua is built through a network of host churches raise spiritual, financial, and missionary support together. Our goal is to accomplish a large-scale mission by allowing many church bodies to participate in a shared model that does not overshadow other mission activities in which your church participates.
