Empowering God's Children to Change the World
Guidestar Paypal


In April of 2011, Mision Vida Nueva was founded by Jenna Haynes as she planned to follow the Lord to Guatemala to serve Him through serving the orphan. The very same year, Jenna and her husband, Geoffrey, who shared the same vision, moved to Guatemala to begin the journey. Since arriving they have built a Christ-centered, government-accredited children's home in the poorest department, Alta Verapaz. Casa Gloria is home and family to children and babies who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused. Casa Gloria is a refuge for these children where they are loved unconditionally and provided with everything necessary to succeed in life including the opportunity to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our hope is that it will be these beloved and purpose-driven children who will go out and change the world, one soul at a time.


Mision Vida Nueva is dedicated to empowering God's children to change the world through working with those the world sees as “least likely” and giving them a purpose, a family, and a new life. Our mission is to take in the ones who are least likely to succeed in life and give them a purpose, a family, and a new life. We are driven by the belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of the worship of all people, and that all people, including the poorest of the poor and the orphans of Guatemala, should have the opportunity to know and worship Him.
