Austin Samaritans seeks to glorify God by connecting resources and needs to transform lives.
Austin Samaritans is a dedicated group of people resolved to improve the human condition in God’s larger world. We seek to show God’s love to people in need in Nicaragua by serving and assisting churches and non-profit organizations in Nicaragua with their programs in the areas of health, education and rescue. By coordinating efforts and pooling resources for maximum impact, we connect resources and talent to needs.
Austin Samaritans serves our mission associates in Nicaragua through prayer, meeting regularly with them to encourage and assess their greatest needs, collecting and delivering needed supplies, bringing people on mission trips to engage with the people they serve, helping with construction and maintenance of their facilities, administering a child sponsorship program to provide a good education for very poor children, and through raising funds to help them in their work.
Austin Samaritans serves those in need in Nicaragua in three fundamental areas: Healthcare, Education, and Rescue.
Austin Samaritans was born out of the hearts of a small group of committed Christians in response to God’s call to serve some of His poorest and neediest people in Nicaragua. After meeting on a mission trip to Nicaragua in 2005, the group sought ways to make a sustainable difference in the lives of men, women, and children experiencing grinding poverty. After a year of prayer and deliberation, the group decided to answer God’s call by founding Austin Samaritans in March 2007.
Austin Samaritans focuses its support in Nicaragua for a number of reasons.
Austin Samaritans seeks to address deficits in health care, education, and social well-being. Austin Samaritans has chosen a number of ministries that demonstrate effectiveness and integrity. These ministries also work in cooperation with each other to accomplish more than could be accomplished in isolation.
