Our Focus Ministries
These are the specific ministries we work through and with in Nicaragua. Our aim is to share the love of Christ through each of these areas of influence by helping to meet physical needs. By doing so, we gain the opportunity to not only impact individuals and families, but to share the gospel, win people to Christ and start the disciple making process in their lives.
Pastor Diomedes Santilez is the founder and director of “Opportunities for Transformational Missions”, a ministry located in Somotillo, Nicaragua, a small town located only 3 miles from the Honduran border. Among the many facets of this ministry, Pastor Diomedes now has over 100 churches that his organization helps to oversee and direct. While most of these churches are located in very remote, rural communities surrounding the town of Somotillo, about 30% are located across the border in Honduras.
The pastors of these churches receive VERY LITTLE (if any) financial support from the churches they lead. God has given New Vision a special burden to help them. The goal of this Church Sponsorship program is to identify church families in the U.S. who are willing to help by “sponsoring” one of these mission churches. Every penny of the $100 monthly support they give goes directly to the pastor of the church, who will use that money to help purchase food for their family. This way, the pastor doesn’t have to worry as much about feeding his family and can have more time to “feed his flock”. Sponsoring churches in the states will also have opportunities to take teams to work with their sister church and minister in the community where they are located.
