“We’ve been participating sponsors of The Isaiah Ministry for several years now. We believe deeply in this ministry and the work that Michael Folsom and others are doing in Nicaragua. We’re firm believers not everyone can do this type of ministry and God has blessed this ministry and the kids with Michael. Michael displays the true meaning of “a calling” through his daily life in this impoverished country. We know what Michael meant to our first sponsored child and we’re confident the testimony of so many would show the love and respect they hold for him. The Isaiah Ministry is not Michael’s “job.” Rather it is his life’s work…the true meaning of “a calling.” We, too, hold the utmost respect for Michael and others doing God’s work and truly making a difference!”Michael & Lacy Dufrene
“When Michael started the Isaiah Ministry we knew we would be sponsoring a child with him. Being us, we procrastinated in contacting him about our desire to sponsor someone. By the time we did, all the kids had already been sponsored. Michael told us not to worry, that he had a couple more kids that he would be bringing into the project. That kid was Alex, although kid might have been a bit of a misnomer. At the time Alex was 14 years old and in high school. We have been sponsoring him ever since. Sponsoring Alex has been a huge blessing to us. We have been able to watch him grow in wisdom, maturity and most importantly in faith. Being able to help such a bright and dedicated young man get a top notch high school education and continue supporting him as he went on to English school and now University has truly been an honor. We also had the joy of finally getting to meet Alex when we went to Nicaragua for Michael and Jessica’s wedding. It was so wonderful to be with him and especially see Alex’s love for us and our children. What a good God we have to bring an American family together with a missionary to a young man in Nicaragua who needed to know God’s love for him. We thank God for the ability to be a part of the Isaiah Ministry and for our 5th kid, Alex.”Wesley & Jessica Buchta
“I’ve been a sponsor since I don’t know when. I was fortunate to meet Michael in Germany before he started out in Nicaragua. My relationship with him and the Isaiah Ministry has been so unexpected and so amazing. I sponsor a young man named Kevin, who I was lucky enough to meet for a few days in 2012. Both Michael and Kevin have been an inspiration to me. It’s been…fun. It would not be an exaggeration to say being connected to the Isaiah Ministry began a long transformation of my faith and a deeper understanding of God’s love and grace. Hearing Michael talk about the faith, watching his great progress in Nicaragua and seeing how the kids are doing is a blessing. I love it.”Paul Kahn
Frequently Asked Questions
What is your mission statement?
We at The Isaiah Ministry understand that the future of Nicaragua rests in the precious hands of the children. Coming alongside the children and youth of Nicaragua to encourage, enable, and guide as best we can in love and truth is what we strive to achieve daily.
What do you believe?
We believe that all human beings have an innate longing and basic desire to feel the love of their Creator. Drawing our inspiration from the Word of God (Isaiah 58:6-11), we seek to continue this love-revolution that was begun by our Lord Jesus Christ and the first believers in “the Way” around two thousand years ago.
At the Isaiah Ministry we strive to show our Father’s love to our fellow man in the simplest forms such as caring for the physical needs of the poor; as well as in more spiritually provocative ways such as offering Bible studies and praying for the sick in public venues. Jesus was love incarnate while He walked this earth; He did not have a ministry-side to His daily life, His life was His ministry. We believe that this is to be our example here in Nicaragua and wherever we may be day to day.
The Isaiah Ministry is not anything new with respect to our feeding and educational programs; or even our Bible studies and public outreach events. However, we are seeking to show our Nicaraguan brothers and sisters what it looks like to live lives given to “being love” because we are loved by Him. This can happen at the grocery store, the bank, the barber shop, in class, on the bus, it just doesn’t matter!
We believe Holy Spirit goes with us everywhere we go and so wherever we go we carry on the inside of us hope, love, and power to change lives that are desperately searching for meaning and hope in a lost and corrupt world.

We believe that you only really live when you really learn to love. It is our mission at the Isaiah Ministry to demonstrate the power that unconditional love really has in transforming hearts, minds, and lives. That said, one of our main ministries is connecting children and their families with sponsors. Could that be you?
