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.
Kid’s Sponsorship Program
This program was started almost 7 years ago to help provide funds to offset the cost of sending a child to school in Nicaragua. As we intended from the outset, the monthly support each child in this Program receives helps to provide them with a school uniform (including shoes), school supplies, lunch and transportation to and from school. But our Kids’ Sponsorship Program goes much deeper than that. We encourage those who sponsor a child (or children) to develop a relationship with their kids and their families… and we work hard to facilitate that. We want these kids and their families to know that Jesus truly and deeply loves them. We want them to see Him at work in their lives.
Each Fall (typically in November), we offer a “Kid’s Sponsorship Trip” to allow sponsors the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and spend a week with their kids. During this time, each of the 60 plus Sponsorship kids are taken to a 5 day Christian Camp where they get to play games, do crafts, swim and just be kids. More importantly though, during this week the kids have the chance to grow in their relationship with Christ by participating in daily devotions and attending two worship services each day.
During the Christmas season, New Vision also provides all of the Sponsorship kids with a Christmas Party where they are treated to a special dinner. In addition to the dinner, each one also receives Christmas gifts from their sponsors.
