New Missions Alumni
// Tim DeTellis
The first generation of students at New Missions came from homes where their parents were illiterate.
For Pierre Jean Vilner, from Lassale, Haiti, his life is on a new path thanks to his education at New Missions Christian Academy. Today, he is an engineer in Haiti and building homes.
Recently, my assistant Cheryl and her husband Ed took a trip to New York City to surprise her friend for her birthday. At the end of their trip they took separate Uber cars from the hotel to different airports. One couple left for LaGuardia and the other to JFK. My assistant’s friend noticed the driver had an accent and asked where he was from? The Uber driver replied, “I’m from Haiti.” She said, “Wow, my best friend works for a mission organization in Haiti.” Then the Uber driver asked, “Is it New Missions?” “Yes,” she said. Without pausing, the Uber driver exclaimed, “New Missions is the best thing that ever happened to Leogane. I am from there.”
“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.” (Acts 8:4) Our alumni are scattered all over, and you are part of their story for the glory of God. ~Tim DeTellis
