You may be wondering, why a new website and a new name? God put on the hearts of two individuals at two different times to help children with special needs in Santa María de Jesús – one through education and the other through therapy.
Although in the same facility for nearly 10 years, New Life School and GOT Ministries were operating independently, providing primary education and therapy to children with special needs. In January 2020, the two united and created a comprehensive and holistic approach to providing primary education and therapy while sharing the love of Christ.
With the new union of two ministries, we knew it was important to have a name that incorporates all we do – therapy, education, and community outreach. After much prayer and discussion, Nueva Vida was born. It is a name that honors our past and beautifully builds on our future.
The colors and shapes you see in our new logo were not random. The colors were pulled from the bright and vibrant huipil of Santa María de Jesús. The diamond shape has a double significance. It is found in the fabric and is also symbolic of the volcano, Agua, where Santa María de Jesús is located.
Over the next few months, you’ll begin to see other graphic elements introduced in our communications as well as our full website (launching in November) that express our love and commitment to the community we serve and Guatemala as a whole. We pray you enjoy the journey God has us on as much as we do.
