Ryan and Molly Nielsen

Ryan & Molly Nielsen, originally from Minnesota, have had a burden to serve as long-term missionaries in Latin America since their marriage in 1998. After serving in another ministry in Central America, they came to minister at Esperanza Viva Youth Home in 2003. Ryan is the construction coordinator for the Living Hope Community, overseeing all the details of building the permanent home for the children, which is his passion. Molly is a full-time mom to their four children: Isaiah, Josiah, Keziah and Lydiah, and also helps out in the office of Esperanza Viva a few hours a week.
