AROUND THE WORLD

NEW LIFE CHILDREN'S HOME - GUATAMALA

Orphaned, abandoned, and abused children have found a refuge and safe haven at New Life Children's Home in Villa Nueva, Guatemala. NLCH is truly a “home” where the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children are addressed. Special attention is given to introducing them to Jesus Christ, nurturing and discipling them in a relationship with Him, and providing each child with a sound academic Christian education. | Learn More |

RICE & BEANS MINISTRY COSTA RICA

The goal at Rice and Beans is to go into all the world and make disciples of Christ.  We study that Christ was always meeting people exactly where they were and then calling them out into a faith that grew them and transformed their lives. Modeled after His example, we strive with each action in hopes of meeting people where they are and help lead them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Meeting the needs of many people often begins with meeting their needs of hunger through the flesh, then meeting their spiritual hunger through the Word and Prayer. | Learn More |
