Our rehab center - “New life USA” was founded on February 5, 2007. With the help of several churches, 102 acres of land was purchased to upon which to build a rehab center in Missouri. At the time, two barns and an old house were the only buildings on this site, a retired farm. Three ministers, volunteer pastors, offered to conduct their ministry at the Rehab center. The ministry began a week later with the arrival of the first people in need of rehab. A Vancouver church kindly offered to supply the materials needed for the work to begin. In the beginning, the rehabilitants and staff slept in the attic of the old house.
With each passing day, the number of people pleading for freedom from drug addiction grew in number. A month after the opening of the Rehab center, the construction of the male housing unit began for 40 people.
Many supporters from neighboring churches joined in the construction of the male dormitory building. That was the beginning...
Five years later - we see fruits of this labor. We’ve served hundreds of people by providing FREE help and this has changed their lives dramatically. In years since we’ve constructed a male and a female housing units which hold up to 80 people and also constructed a Russian style sauna. In Russia we learned this style sauna was crucial to detoxification from drugs and having by our creek provides a great cool down location. To help our rehabilitants understand the hopelessness of leading a Christ-less life (a life without deeper meaning) we provide an environment rich is teaching, stewardship and fellowship. They also come to understand the joy and fulfillment that comes from hard work and exercise. They breed livestock including cows, sheep, goats, chicken, and fish. They post rehabilitation value by learning trades of automotive servicing, construction, electrical work, plumbing, masonry, carpentry, and repair. Also, we have 20 beehives, an orchard, vegetable gardens, and greenhouse. All of these things have been done through hard work and with the help of people who are not indifferent to the misfortunes of others. In the rehabilitation center men and women of all ages who have lost a moral lifestyle come to know the meaning of a fulfilling meaningful life. They graduate to become contributing members of society.
Understanding that alcoholism is a spiritual problem, our Rehab center appeals to volunteers who feel called to serve God in by giving leadership and example. Specifically we appeal to those, that upon hearing this calling, feel moved to help our cause. We ask for help with youth services, seminary, and conferences.
Over the more than 20 years since New Life started it Russia our leadership has learned that there are rules pertaining to the structure and process of rehabilitation which results in the true life long solution: the spiritual re-birth and a radical change in the course of life for the person that came here for change.
This rehabilitation service is free and is founded on the voluntary desires of a person to escape alcoholism and/or drug abuse. The main requirement is that such person desires change and desires to leave their past addictions and past life behind.
For this reason, we started expanding in recent years by beginning the construction of a worship center in Missouri and we have bought land and are opening a another center near Lovelock, Nevada. As you can imagine, we really need people who have skills of all kinds and whose hearts are sensitive to the fate of others. If you have a desire to come and work in our Godly mission...we are waiting for you!At New Life Missouri we house 15 to 35 people simultaneously. Currently, services are held in the dining room and for now we have no space deficiency (there is no overcrowding; there is a sufficient amount of room). We look to the future and hope that we will have more staff, and therefore, we will be able to serve more people that are in need of rehabilitation.
Occasionally we have difficulties paying for bills. We are saving souls with the money donated to us. What is all the money in the world in comparison to even one saved soul who will not die but will live in the grace of eternity? If you have a desire to participate in this project, you can call 417-967-1155 and get more information (any donation is tax deductible- we will provide proof of your donation which you can use on your taxes). Checks can be written out to "New Life USA" and sent to the center of your choice: Missouri: 12998 Piney Creek Dr., Cabool, MO, 65689; Nevada: 5605 Victory Hwy, Lovelock, NV 89419; or, you can make one time or recurring donations to either center using the donation link at the top of any page.
We also show concern for our neighbors by helping them do all kinds of projects. One man donated some equipment that allows us to transfer images and text to different mediums: stone, marble, and T-shirts. Now people who desire to help New Life can purchase a various assortment of different products from us.
We teach our rehabilitants to cherish every dollar earned because when they were drug addicts they spent anywhere from $50 to $200 a day on drugs. What’s worse is that the money they spent was often earned by way of stealing and sometimes extortion from their parents. Here they learn to live again. As the Bible says in Ephesians 4: 28 ESV, "Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need." But for now, it is enough that they are learning about finances. New Life covers 20% of their internal costs.
Invaluable help comes from people whose hearts are not indifferent to the fate of others. Without external support, our existence would be very, very difficult. Thank all who help us to run this ministry.
