Who We Are
Rick and Mary are from Mississippi: a Veterinarian and a Nurse. On a mission trip to China as they worked in separate areas, they both felt the call to full-time missions. As the trip ended and they were back together they shared their hearts: they are supposed to be missionaries. Soon Rick and Mary were connected with CVM’s Dr. Brad Frye who mentioned Nicaragua. As they prayed and waited on God’s word they learned patience. They were ultimately able to say “Yes, God, we will go where you want us and tell others of your love and greatness.”
Their desire is to spread God’s love through the country while empowering others to help themselves improve aspects of their lives such as health and nutrition. Hosting several small teams annually, Rick and Mary work in remote villages alongside lay trained health promoters with humans, animals, and crops. They include local pastors as they have a relationship with the people and know the needs of their communities as they live beside them daily. They want others to see it is because of their faith that they serve God in Nicaragua.
We work with Ramificando (Branching Out) Nicaragua, an in-country NGO. The Ervins work mainly alongside Mahanaim Rehabilitation Center for Alcoholics and Drug Addicts, a free faith-based program. Their care is for the health of people, food animals, and crops to improve nutrition. Rehab residents are taught to become good stewards of the God-given land and resources. Their home church, The Orchard in Tupelo MS, partners in prayer, finances, communication, and love.
