More Fifth Birthdays
The air was full of expectation, like the night before Christmas, as the little children sat tightly together in perfect silence with their eyes wide open and their smiles stretching across their faces. […]
Like Father, Like Son
On the Leogane Plain in Haiti, Pastor Richard Gay has served God for 25 years as pastor and school director at the New Missions Academy in Masson. When we were at his school a few weeks ago, he said to me, “This is my son”—with a smile reminding me of God the Father to His son, Jesus (“I am well-pleased”). […]
God, Change Me Too
As part of her presentation to the youth group at Cielo Vista Church in El Paso, Texas, 16-year-old Gaby shared the following: “I thought I shouldn’t go on this mission trip because I wasn’t good enough. Little did I know the phrase ‘you’re not good enough’ was just a lie that Satan was trying to put in my head.” She had just returned from Haiti, where one of her dreams was to meet Marriana Charles—the girl her family sponsors through New Missions. […]
DR Mission Teams
Mission teams coming to the Dominican Republic help boost our local outreach and evangelistic efforts. Most teams come prepared with Bible lessons to share with our students. We also plan other outreach events to utilize the expertise and skills of people coming on teams. […]
Come to Haiti
What will I do if I join a mission team going to New Missions in Haiti? Typically, teams are involved with distributing Christmas shoeboxes, sneakers, fifth birthday parties, and classroom and village ministry. […]
Hope for Little Kids
At our preschools in the Dominican Republic, every school day starts with praying, singing Christian songs, and reading Bible stories. The children follow a routine each day and learn to socialize with other children, share, obey, and respect their elders and others.
Teachers Teaching Jesus
The focus and priority of New Missions is to preach the Gospel. In that context, we often find ourselves in ministries such as education and healthcare—to express the full Gospel of Jesus Christ. Education is one of our most successful means to see children come to hear and to know Jesus as their Savior.
Lessons from Mom
For as long as I can remember, my mother has been known as a “mother to many” besides her own children. She even introduces other people as her sons and daughters. I am honored to share my mom with the world. More importantly, I am grateful for how many love my mom, too.
“Game changer” may not be a word one normally uses to describe a school desk or bench, but in Haiti it really is! “Made in Haiti” (not Made in China) is what should be printed on our classroom desks. Every desk is 100% Haitian made.
Partner with Moms
When carrying out mission work, we often seek long-term solutions to help the people we serve. Spiritual darkness. Poverty. Illiteracy. Unemployment. Disease. Since 1983, we have pursued Christ-centric solutions to these big problems facing the poorest of the poor in the Western Hemisphere.
Los Castillos School
Church services began in May 2017 in Los Castillos, Dominican Republic. We have seen the impact the church and school is having on our students and their families. Not long ago, a fight broke out between two families in Redemption village, where our school is currently located and most of the children live. [...]
All of us need a complete deliverance in our lives from anything holding us down. I believe some Christians are content with a partial deliverance. They are not fully walking in victory. [...]
Now, I'm a Pastor
Children were lined up to receive their shoebox gifts. On this special day, the person passing out these gifts was their pastor and school director, Mario Bijou. When he looked into their eyes, he could see himself. He, too, was once a student at New Missions. [...]
In February, team members from Newport Assembly of God in Newport, PA, had the privilege of helping the students at our New Missions Decouze campus pick out their own pair of sneakers. [...]
Building Something Great
Two girls sat on the foundation of the church being built in Concrab, Haiti, and little did they know this building would become a place where hundreds would find faith in Jesus. [...]
Students Helping Students
The remarks of thirteen students from Ben Lippen school in Columbia, SC—who held VBS at our Masson, Signeau, and Concrab schools this January—had some common themes. [...]
