Marty and Mary Madsen

Marty & Mary Madsen have served as missionaries in the US, France and Mexico since 1979. In 2000, they began working at Esperanza Viva Youth Home, where their experience and love are invaluable in ministering to the children. Marty & Mary are currently serving as missionaries with Living Hope International from the US while caring for Marty's ailing mother. Mary handles all of Living Hope International's accounting, and Marty prepares all of the ministry's newsletter mailings in the US and serves in several other functions while caring for his mother full-time. Together they serve as co-leaders of the Minnesota advisory committee which helps raise awareness and funding for Living Hope International.
