new life christian school

New Life Christian School was founded in 1990. It is an integral part of NLCH’s endeavor to “train up a child in the way he should go,” not only for the children who live at NLCH, but also for those living in the surrounding community. New Life Christian School currently enrolls children in grades Pre-K through 12th grade, with over 600 students!

In order to not only accommodate more students but also to provide a better and more personalized learning environment, especially for our pre-school, elementary, and special education students, we began an expansion project several years ago. It is almost done, but we still need approximately $80,000 to push us over the top! You can help support our School Expansion Project so that we can complete construction and offer a quality Christian education to more children. This ambitious plan has already allowed us to almost double our classroom space and provided space to add high school in 2020!

New Life Christian School also has its own Spanish-language website

New Life Medical/dental Clinic

The clinic began in 1998 after Hurricane Mitch hit Guatemala. Mitch caused widespread flooding, and affected the squatters' village which is about a mile from NLCH. Fourteen people died there in a mudslide, and most of the homes were filled with mud. 

We started what we thought would be a temporary clinic of six weeks to address the physical needs we were seeing: diarrhea, fungus, respiratory problems, etc. Fifty to sixty people would line up to see the doctor. We soon added a small budget-priced pharmacy and dentist to the mix. God used many people over the course of several years to get our clinic to what it is today: a pleasant oasis of care. 

We now have two part-time doctors, two part-time dentists, a small laboratory, and nurse who runs the pharmacy and shares the love of Jesus with all who enter.
