How We Got Started
Our CEO’s, Norman Maradiaga, and his wife Marlene Maradiaga felt that God had placed a desire and passion in their hearts to work with children and families that live in poverty in the USA and Internationally. After much prayer, Seed of Hope Ministries Inc. became active in November 2015 when they felt that they can make a difference in the homeless community in Downtown Miami. The first event was a Thanksgiving Homeless Event on Thanksgiving Day of 2015 where hot meals were provided, personal hygiene bags, and women and men’s clothing, but most importantly the love of God was shared with every homeless. It was an indescribable, unforgettable, and most rewarding event. Since then we have attempted to have a homeless event every month in the Downtown Miami area with our staff and with the help of our volunteers.
In 2017, Seed of Hope Ministries (SOH) had the honor and privilege to do their first missionary event in Tipitapa, Nicaragua.
Through prayer and direction of God, we partnered with Pastor Franklin Mesa from Iglesia Casa de Paz. Together we reached out to the community and did an event for men struggling with alcoholism in August of 2017. We fed them a hot meal, gave them care packages, and shared the love of Jesus which resulted in men giving their lives to Christ and renouncing to their addictions. SOH returned in December of 2017 to do a Christmas Festival with all the kids in Tipitapa providing a hot meal, toys and treats to all kids, and food packages to all families. In 2018 we did an event for single mothers and their kids where we provided an inspirational message given by Pastor Marcelo Castro from Iglesia Clinica Del Alma-Miami Gardens, food packages were given to feed families of 4 for 2 weeks, as well as candy for the kids and a hot meal for that day. On December 2018, our annual Christmas Festival was done in Matagalpa, Nicaragua where toys, food for the families, and a hot meal was provided in coordination with Pastor Franklin and volunteers from his church, Casa de Paz.
Following Our Vision
Seed of Hope Ministries wanted to help and impact not only the homeless in the US but also all families and neighborhoods that are in need in our community. In August of 2018, we did our first neighborhood event called Back2School Bash in Miami Gardens, FL. We gave approximately 130 bookbags filled with school supplies, free hair cuts for the boys and hair designs for the girls, burgers and hotdogs for everyone, cotton candy, snow cones, 3 bounce houses, produce provided by FarmShare for all families, and most importantly we had the opportunity to present the gospel of Jesus and pray for those in need and willing. Through our partnership with Walmart, we were able to raffle 2 bicycles that Walmart donated. In December 2018 we returned to Miami Gardens, FL and did our annual Christmas Festival where burgers and hotdogs were given to everyone, cotton candy, snow cones, an inflatable obstacle course, a mobile game center through GameRunners, produce provided by FarmShare for all families, and most importantly we shared the love of Jesus Christ and prayed for all families in need. We also had other organizations in partnership with us who made a big difference in the event such as the Resource Room and Miami Gardens Police Department.
More, more and more …
Seed of Hope saw another need in our community and that was the need for fresh food and produce. In 2018 we began by bringing a new program in our ministry called the Seed of Hope Food Distribution where we will partner with local churches or organizations in the much-needed communities and do food distribution events to serve everyone in the community and just bring a little bit of Hope to the Hopeless.
This was the beginning of a wonderful journey for Seed of Hope where we have been able to feed hundreds of thousands of families and share the love of Jesus.
