Welcome to New Vision Ministries! The main purpose of NVM is to serve and lift up Jesus Christ. We try to promote service among those whom society would marginalize, because we believe that when we are weak, He is strong. We serve not in our own strength, but in His resurrected power. Come and join us, and listen to what God tells you that you can do through Christ, instead of what the world says you can’t do.

We are currently involved in several different projects, and we’d really appreciate your prayers and feedback. First, Our hospital and nursing home ministry is very important to us. I am a hospital chaplain, and my wife assists me as I make my rounds, encouraging and praying for the patients and their families. On the fourth Sunday of each month, we perform a short church service at a local nursing home. We’d appreciate your prayers for these services, which we really enjoy providing.

Our next initiative is what we like to call Project KIDS (Kenya Inter-Denominational Sharing). This project centers around Pastor Opingo, who lives in Kenya, Africa. Besides running his own church, he has taken 15 orphaned children into his two-bedroom house. We have posted some pictures of Pastor Opingo, his church, and the orphans he protects. We are happy to be part of this very caring and humble person’s life. We would appreciate your prayers regarding Project KIDS, and we encourage you to consider adopting an orphan. If you’d like to say hello or ask him a question, his email is kenyapastor@yahoo.com.

Third, I started a weekly Bible study about 5 years ago, which my wife recently joined. It’s open to anyone, and we meet over a conference line on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 PM MST. Currently we are in the book of Proverbs, and we’d love it if you would come join us! The number is 605-475-5900, PIN #139535.

Lastly, we have combined our God-given abilities into a business. As an ordained minister I have a lot of experience speaking in public, and my wife is a very talented pianist. We have already served at several funerals and retreats. Planet Celebrations is a separate branch of our business. Through the use of this separate name, we hope to perform at parties, weddings and other joyous events.

Our desire is only to strengthen and encourage the body of Christ. If you have a ministry in another part of the country please tell us about it, so that we can pray for and encourage you.
This ministry is supported by you. If you feel that God may be putting this on your heart, please prayerfully consider getting involved. To donate, go to www.hcma.org and use ID number 560. Thank you, and may God bless you with a wonderful week! Yours in Christ,Timothy and Stephanie Burdick
