As some of you may know, we have partnered with Compassion International in Honduras for many years to implement special programs with very poor kids in our community. One of the main focuses is helping release children from poverty, both spiritual and financial. Just this week, our ministry added 56 new children to our Integral Development Center (CDI) program. We provide them with special attention which includes: dental care, a meal a day and a sound Christian education. This addition bring us to a total of 293 poor kids that we are able to care for. We have a director and a staff of 16 people from our church in Danli that work there. This is not to be confused with The Newman School, but a separate ministry partnership that we help host in our facilities.
Also, we had the regional 2017 Youth Conference of El Paraiso zone this month. We were very excited to see dozens and dozens of young people attend the conference in Danli. Every year we emphasize these conferences because it is so important to help the youth grow in their Christian life. It was a blessing to see pastor Samuel Fonseca, a mature, young man who is the pastor of one of our newest churches, sharing his knowledge in a conference called, "Daniel: Impacting Your Generation". We also had Yolibeth, a recent college graduate facilitate the conference called, "Youth: After God's own Heart."
We are seeing our young people grow healthy in their Christian lives.
Our profound thanks to every one of you who are contributing to make all our ministries possible over here in Honduras.
Dr. Hector Newman
