NLAI wishes to extend deepest condolences to the family of longtime NLAI missionary, Linda Ragsdale. For many years, Linda and her husband, Kent, served in Haiti. They had to leave the field several years ago due to failing health.

Please pray for Kent along with the rest of their family. We are thankful for Linda's commitment to the Lord, her deep commitment to prayer and her love for the Haitian people as well as the missionary community in Haiti.

Children at risk will be rescued, 

leaders will be equipped, 

and communities will be transformed

...all for the glory of God.

NLAI missionaries work alongside Guatemalan nationals in the areas of rescuing children at risk, preventing human trafficking, evangelism, discipleship and community transformation.
