BY FAITH WE ARE MOVING FORWARD...  

 

It is all so amazing!!!  Words can not describe all the things that are coming into place for New Hope's ministry to the Miskito Indians in the rain forest of Nicaragua!!!

 

If you are interested in knowing more of the details as well as hearing our New Hope team members share their experiences of being with us on this mission outreach, you may want to go to: www.nhcradio.org - then, under "PREVIOUS BROADCASTS - click on the "live broadcast" we made on JUNE 10, 2011."  

 

 OPERATION BREAKTHROUGH

And the... mighty men BRAKE THROUGH the host...

                    II Samuel 23:16

   

Deep in the rain forest of Nicaragua... nestled on the banks of the Coco River... lies a little Miskito Indian village known as Kisalaya.

Since 2004, New Hope Children's  Foundation has been blessed with the opportunity to provide food, medical care, and most importantly... the  Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Miskito Indian children and their families who live in the rainforest of the nation of Nicaragua.
 
As a result of New Hope's various outreaches to the Miskito Indians over the past seven years, the seven elders of the village of Kisalaya met with our New Hope team on June 4th.  

 

 Meeting with elders

 

 

The elders met to approve giving New Hope a large acreage to facilitate a base of operations for New Hope in the rainforest. The parcel of ground is big. It's over a two-mile walk just around the perimeter of our new property.

The elders rule is supreme in each village. Their word is "law." Not even the Nicaraguan military can overrule their decisions. And "their decision"... was to give New Hope all the land we needed to be able to reach their people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It's interesting to note that six of the seven elders are pastors. The seventh elder is "the judge" in the village and he too loves the Lord!

Their gift was not just "any ground. " It is "good, high, cleared ground." Ground which New Hope can use for the building up of the Kingdom of God throughout the rain forest.

The vision of "Operation Breakthrough" is:

 

1) TO BUILD A CHILDREN'S HOME for the children we rescue from the rainforest.  We believe this will be ongoing. As we keep rescuing children... we will keep building (as long as there is a need).

 

This is our present plan for the home:

 

Plan for Kisalaya home 

 

We have designed it so we can continue building on the lower side. You will notice from the colors, we have designed it to be completed in stages. Phase 1 is the area we plan to begin building in August. 

  

2) TO TEACH THE MISKITO INDIANS HOW TO GROW CROPS  to feed their families in the village of Kisalaya and the other 121 villages throughout the rainforest (72,000 people).

 

We plan on providing seed and the "know how"  to the villagers so they will be able to become self-sufficient. 

 

Presently they are so hungry that if we gave them seed, they would eat it. Also, due to the change in weather patterns (from much of the rain forest being cut), the rains do not come as they use to. We will have to help them irrigate their gardens or whatever they plant will shrivel up and die.

     

3) PROVIDE FOOD TO FAMILIES WHO ARE ALMOST STARVING.  We plan on doing this primarily by boat as over 100 of these villages can only be reached by river.

 

We understand there are areas along the Coco River where Miskito Indians are eating leaves and bark off the trees to survive. All of this will change as together we do what Jesus told us to do... and that is to feed the hungry.

 

We have all probably heard, "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."  We are believing this will soon become a reality as we work beside these families teaching them how to work the ground and grow the food their families so desperately need to survive.


We fed around 500 hungry children at our first feeding of children in the village of Kisalaya. We were told that  there would be 700 the next day!

During out first feeding, around 20 children responded to give their lives to Jesus Christ. It doesn't get any better than that! And... it's just the beginning.

4) TEACH ENGLISH, COMPUTER AND MOST IMPORTANTLY... CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP AND BIBLE TO THE STUDENTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

 

This is amazing as there are 600 children in an elementary school in Kisalaya and 1,000 students in the village of Waspan that are waiting for us to come and teach them.

 

New Hope will not need to build schools or hire teachers. They are already there, just waiting for the laborers that God will send to New Hope to work in this area.

 

 

5) EVANGELIZE EVERY MISKITO INDIAN VILLAGE.  The mayor of Waspan has opened the door for New Hope to work in 121 villages (72,000 inhabitants).

We plan on doing this with the teams who come from the U.S. to work with us at New Hope. We will target a village(s) and during the team's visit, go to that village and minister (pass out tracts, etc.)

 

6) BUILD A BIBLE SCHOOL TO TRAIN PASTORS TO REACH THEIR OWN PEOPLE WITH THE GOSPEL.  More Than Conquerors School of Theology has all the resources to make this a reality! 

 

It is important to bring about a spiritual change in the Miskito Indian families. There is no one who can do it better than the ministers who are working for the Lord in the rainforest.

 

In fact, we just ordained about 30 ministers into the ministry on this trip.

7) ESTABLISH A RADIO STATION THAT CAN BROADCAST TO THE ENTIRE RAINFOREST,  THE "GOOD NEWS OF OUR SAVIOUR'S LOVE" FOR THE MISKITO INDIAN PEOPLE.

 

We have looked into purchasing a 150' tower and everything we need to get started. The cost would be around $7,500.

 

We have also talked to pastors in the area and they are ready to help us broadcast in the Miskito Indian language. This is a phenomenal opportunity!

 

 

8) RAISE UP AND TRAIN MISKITO INDIANS TO GO FORTH AND GATHER IN THE SPIRITUAL HARVEST THROUGHOUT THE RAINFOREST.

 

This is a vital part of Operation Breakthrough. There is not enough of "US" to reach all of "THEM." We are believing, and with God's help, for a new generation to be raised up to go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit so... "none will be lost."

 

9) ESTABLISH A MISSIONARY TRAINING CENTER SO THAT MEN AND WOMEN FROM AROUND THE WORLD CAN COME AND PREPARE FOR THE MISSIONARY WORK TO WHICH GOD HAS CALLED THEM.

 

What better place is there to get "hands on training" than right in the middle of one of the world's most ignored spiritual harvest fields? 

 

This is "IT"... this is "THE TIME"... for those whom GOD UNITES with this ministry to go forth in... "OPERATION BREAKTHROUGH"!!! 


      

 WE NEED YOUR PRAYER OF AGREEMENT FOR THE MANY NEEDS THAT MUST BE MET FOR  THIS VISION TO BECOME A REALITY...

 

 

Pray for LABORERS to be raised up to come to the rainforest and work with New Hope.

 

We need volunteers to:


1) SHARE Christ's love with the children.


2) SHARE Christ's love with the adults.


3) WORK in constructing the needed facilities.  The Lord willing, Brother Ford will be beginning construction on August 23rd. Construction help will be needed from thereon out.


4) TEACH English to students in the schools. Volunteers do not need a degree, only a good grasp of the English language.


5) HELP PLANT the crops and work the ground as we teach Miskito Indians how to grow their own food. 


6) FACILITATE the vision God has laid on our hearts.

 

Please agree with us in prayer for the IMMEDIATE TOOLS we need to make the beginning of this vision a reality. 

 

1) FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE TRUCK to help staff members to reach the property (the main bridge was destroyed by the last hurricane). This truck is also needed to reach outlying villages. Without transportation, we can not proceed.

 

2) TRACTOR AND EQUIPMENT to break up the ground and prepare for acres and acres of gardens. We also need this tractor (with a front end loader) to use in constructing Phase 1 of the children's home. 

 

3) FINANCES to purchase materials to make our own concrete blocks (there are none for sale in this remote area), building materials, lots of seed, fencing, farm animals, supplies, etc.  We are so thankful for the two who each gave $5,000 to start this project. This will help us initially, but within a very short time, we will need additional finances. 

 

 

 WE ALSO PRAISE THE LORD FOR THE THREE CHILDREN THE TEAM RESCUED AND BROUGHT TO "HOUSE OF HOPE" IN WASPAN DURING THIS OUTREACH.

 

We praise the Lord for the three precious little souls that now call "House of Hope" their home. They are no doubt sleeping in their first beds, eating more than they ever have and being loved for perhaps the first time in their lives.

Thanks for agreeing with us in prayer for the last $3,000 that is needed to finish this project!!! God is so faithful to touch hearts concerning the needs of the children here. We praise the Lord in advance for the final finances needed so we can start moving our boys in. What a blessing this is going to be to them!  

   

 

100% OF ALL GIFTS STILL GO  

DIRECTLY TO NICARAGUA

 

 

It is true! ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT (that means ALL) of your gifts and money given to New Hope Children's Foundation... no matter the amount... will be used in Nicaragua to help New Hope minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the children. It's a promise! Nothing will be taken out for operating expenses here in the U.S. or for salaries or airplane tickets, etc. for any American citizen who is working with New Hope.  (Unless you designate your gift to help support  a particular staff member.)  Again this month, we proclaim... that "all of New Hope's needs are met according to His riches in glory"!!!  To those of you the Lord directs to be a part of New Hope's outreach to the children in Nicaragua, we want to THANK YOU in advance for your prayers and gifts...   

FOR THE CHILDREN.
