January 2022 Update
NLAI exists to advance the Kingdom of God through new life in Christ. We specifically do that by rescuing children at risk, making disciples, and transforming families and communities; all for the glory of God.
For Echo Reach Ministries, that looks like using soccer in low-income schools to help keep kids interested in academics, out of gangs, learning about Jesus, and discipling them and their families. For New Life Children’s Home, it looks like providing a safe and loving home for abused, abandoned and neglected children; introducing them to Jesus and discipling them as they grow and are educated. For New Life Medical Clinic it means providing not only quality and affordable health care for our community, but praying for them and telling them about Jesus. And at New Life Christian School, it looks like giving kids hope through Bible-learning, discipleship and education.
We are excited that the final phase of the construction project at New Life Christian School is underway thanks to two large donations. We are really close to the finish line for full funding. You can click here to help us reach that goal. We look forward to three new, full-time missionaries coming to Guatemala in 2022 (you’ll hear more about this in the coming months). We are so happy about the school year starting this month with permission from the Ministry of Education to do in-person learning (beginning with a hybrid of online and in-person classes). We are also looking forward to seeing how God works through Echo Reach Ministries as other schools are opening up, and through the efforts of Tara Goodloe Fuentes as she moves toward opening a bilingual school for ages 4-7 scheduled to open in 2023.
There are so many great things happening at NLAI; from new soccer fields to new or re-opened ministry opportunities, to new missionaries, to Covid-testing available in our clinic, to interns and teams returning, to energy savings from solar panels. And it all is made possible by our faithful and generous donors like you! As 2021 closes and 2022 begins, we want to say THANK YOU for your financial support and prayers.
