An
Introduction

NLN is a Christian non-profit organization founded in 2002.  Our focus is to point all who are touched by this ministry to the love of God.  We exist to engage, equip, & empower the people of Nicaragua, as they grow in their knowledge of the changing power of salvation through Jesus Christ.  We envision real & lasting change, as we serve to provide nutrition, housing, job training and discipleship.

If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.

Isaiah 58:10

We Feed
Children

We have initiated feeding programs for two barrios in Nicaragua, under the guidance of the local church.  These programs provide nutritious meals that help to alleviate diseases and complications of malnutrition.  This important element to holistic care provides a basic need, and grows healthier and happier children.  

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Acts 20:35

We Build Homes
For The Poor

In 2009, NLN began a new ministry in Cristo Rey, a barrio set near a landfill and engulfed in extreme poverty.  Many people lacked the basic needs of shelter, water, and electricity.  We built the first home there in 2010, and have since constructed over 300 homes.  

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

We Resource
Discipleship

NLN always works through the local church.  We develop relationships with pastors, and support their programs that minister to children and families.  We manage resources that are donated and advocate for their needs.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

James 1:27

We Love and Care
For Orphans

In 2005, NLN became a home for orphans.  Over the next ten years, we witnessed 200 world-wide adoptions from our ministry.  In 2015, Nicaragua began to focus on the front side of orphan care, and concentrated their efforts on supporting the families of these children.  Since that time, NLN has also continued to focus on the extensive needs of families who care for these at-risk children.

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?

1 John 3:17

We Care For
At-Risk Children And Families

Our feeding programs are focused on reaching children whose families are in extreme poverty and are unable to provide sufficient nutrition, both in Cristo Rey and Managua.  Our children's center located in Managua, not only provides meals, but gives essential care to at-risk children throughout the day.

And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

2 Timothy 2:2

We Resource
Vocational
Learning

NLN believes in empowering people to help themselves.  Through skill training, we give people the opportunity to  work and earn a living.  There are vocational opportunities available in Cristo Rey that include sewing and baking programs.  We help to run these programs by resourcing donations given through our ministry partners.
