... A New Day ... A New Life!

Hi!

We are Glen & Jana Kauffman.

Glen and Janna KauffmanIn 2011 we purchased land in Nicaragua and New Day Ministry was founded. After several years of part-time missions we were called to commit our lives to full-time service ministering to the people there.

We moved to Nicaragua in 2012 and began our ministry in Los Cedros, Nicaragua. Our ministry is constantly changing as we strive to meet the needs of the people here. Encompassing many areas of need, we work with men, women and children, discipling, and working daily with them and providing much needed supplies to both students and teachers.

Our vision is to show the love of Jesus one day at a time, one life at a time. In everyday circumstances, by helping with the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the Nicaraguan people. We want to see the young people of Nicaragua understand Gods purpose for their life and to help each one rise up as disciples of Christ.

 

We are an independent non profit faith based ministry team
sent by our home church: New LIfe Church, Canton, PA.
We encourage churches and individuals to consider supporting
both children and communities here.

Briston’s story! This 14 yr. old young guy is amazing. He may struggle learning in school book work, but he is absorbing all kinds of trade work. He was learning to work with wood, and now one of our guys Aquiles is teaching him welding, iron work, metal, solar, and electric.
You go young man! We are so proud of you!

Esta semana conocí a una pareja, me preguntan si estoy casado y si tengo hijos, respondí amablemente que sí, "tengo 2 niñas", dije con orgullo, el hombre dijo: "2 chicas están tristes", las mujeres están inútil para nada, solo para dar problemas. Si la señora dijo que tienes que enseñarles cómo cuidar un hogar porque las chicas de hoy no saben cómo hacer nada, bla, bla, bla, continuó.
Me hizo querer destriparlos a ambos. Pero les dije. Oh, no, mis hijas son muy capaces y, por supuesto, les estoy enseñando que no son esclavas de nadie que no deba soportar el maltrato de nadie. Que son valiosos y que Dios los creó para ser, para lograr, para lograr lo que se propusieron hacer en la vida.
La dama me lo dice. Las mujeres deben sufrir, buenas mujeres. Qué triste que alguien piense así, lo más triste es que el hombre sacó una biblia de su bolso y comenzó a evangelizarme. Quería destriparlos más, pero el Espíritu Santo que vive en mí me lo impidió. Lástima, espero que no tengan hijos, porque si los tienen, hay más de esas mentes retrógradas.

This week I met a couple, they ask me if I am married and if I have children, I kindly replied that yes, "I have 2 girls", I said proudly, the man said, "2 girls are sad", women are useless not at all, just to give trouble. If the lady said you have to teach them how to take care of a home because the girls of today do not know how to do anything blah blah blah, she continued.
It made me want to gut them both. But I told them. Oh no my daughters are very capable and of course I am teaching them that they are not slaves to anyone who should not endure mistreatment from anyone. That they are valuable and that God created them to be, to achieve, to achieve what they set out to do in life.
The lady tells me. Women are to suffer, good women. How sad that someone thinks that way, the saddest thing is that the man took a bible out of his bag and began to evangelize me. I wanted more to disembowel them but the Holy Spirit that lives in me prevented me. Too bad, I hope they don't have children, because if they do, there are more of those retrograde minds

Today in Nicaragua schools are in session. They are told there is just 2 people with the virus and it’s just a bad cold, so they need to stay in school. Pray for safety for your precious little friends.
