Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need.
We at the Isaiah Mission Foundation are fueled by passion: a passion to serve. In our eyes, we can accomplish the greatest amount of good by using our unique gifts and talents to serve others.
Having individually built up decades of experience in our respective fields, we began searching for our next purpose in life beyond our careers–we were retired, but certainly not tired! We launched the Foundation in 2017 as a way to discover how to fulfill our desire to do good at this stage of our lives.
We found our first opportunity to serve with the Kibuye Hospital in Burundi–one of the world’s poorest countries–where Len’s son-in-law serves as a surgeon, and where until a few months ago he was the only general surgeon on staff for a population of over 2 million people. In working closely with the hospital’s doctors, missionaries, educators and others, we recognized a number of needs that we could help fulfill. Our efforts began to bear results, and we visited the hospital to identify additional ways that our gifts and talents could provide value.
Our success with Kibuye Hospital led to a new thought: how much more good could we do with more people like us?
The difference we want to make requires more than just the five of us. That’s why we seek like-minded individuals who also have the passion to serve, in order to better the world, one country at a time. Our vision for the Isaiah Mission Foundation has expanded to providing opportunities for others to participate in our mission, allowing them to enrich both others’ lives and their own.
We are building and engaging a servant network across the world to identify and provide necessary tools to fill gaps in developing countries. Our work covers a wide cross-section of human health and sustainability–from building solar energy platforms to delivering surgical supplies and nutrition necessities–and we won’t stop there.
By sharing and teaching what we have, we offer an opportunity to support the development of self-sustaining local infrastructures that promote security, prosperity and generosity. We hope you’ll join us.
