As we get ready to celebrate Christmas we wanted to share a few shots from the first ‘proper’ week of the Novō programme at Quinta Totaices. It’s included a resident’s birthday, office set-up, prospective resident interviews, medical checks, therapeutic groups, one-to-ones, worship, and a good deal of practical work. If you would like to make a special gift to Novō this Christmas (or set-up a regular donation) we would be most grateful. http://novocommunities.org/donate/

A medida que nos preparamos para celebrar la Navidad queremos compartir algunos aspectos de la primera semana oficial del programa Novō en Quinta Totaices. Incluye el cumpleaños de un residente, la organización de la oficina, las entrevistas con unos residentes potenciales, los chequeos médicos, los grupos terapéuticos, las sesiones individuales, un tiempo de adoración, y una buena cantidad de trabajo práctico. Si desea donar a Novō esta Navidad (o establecer una donación regular) estaríamos muy agradecidos. http://novocommunities.org/donate/

Hoy incorporamos a Lincoln Terceros Franco al equipo de Novo! Lincoln estudia Ingeniería Electrónica en la universidad durante la noche y dedica su tiempo libre trabajando con jóvenes y rescatando adictos que viven en las calles de Santa Cruz. Estamos agradecidos con el Señor por traernos a una persona como Lincoln, con su corazón, experiencia y el potencial que significa trabajando junto a José Ernesto Zardán Simoni y David Fuertes.

Today we added Lincoln Tereceros to Team Novō! Lincoln studies Electrical Engineering at University in the evenings and devotes his spare time to youth work and reaching out to addicts on the streets of Santa Cruz. We’re thankful that God has brought a guy with Lincoln’s heart, experience, gifts and potential to work alongside José and David.

Yesterday was a milestone day!

Yesterday was a milestone day! We appointed David Fuertes (who many of you will recognise from our promo film) to the staff team here in Santa Cruz. David starts in November and comes to Novō with 14 years church leadership experience in Tarija, as well as experience working in a residential addiction treatment setting. Pray for David and his family as they prepare to move to a new city and into a new phase of their life and ministry. If you’d like to support Novō so that we can equip guys like José and David click on the ‘Donate Now’ button above or send us a PM. Thanks!

Ayer fue un día de mucho importancia para novo. Hemos aprobado David Fuertes (de quien muchos de ustedes van a reconocer por su presciencia en nuestro película de promoción) para formar parte de nuestro equipo aquí en Santa Cruz. David va a empezar en noviembre y trae a Novo 14 años de experiencia que tiene como líder en su iglesia en Tarija. Encima de eso tiene expediente trabajando en un centro para adictos. Oren por David y su familia que están preparándose para el traslado a una ciudad nueva, y empezando un nuevo capítulo en su vida y ministerio.

Si tienes interés en apoyar a Novo para darnos los recursos para poder capacitar gente como José y David puedes click Donate Now o mandarnos un mensaje. Gracias.

We’re thrilled that José Ernesto has returned to Bolivia, safe and sound, after his 9 month training placement at Yeldall Manor!

Quinta Totaices this afternoon.

Quinta Totaices this afternoon. Despite the bustling city around us it feels incredibly peaceful here! Its so easy to imagine it as a recovery community – all we’re missing are some residents, a pool table and a staff member with a duty checklist!



Novō is a charity which is dedicated to pursuing a singular vision – the vision of creating transformational communities in developing nations where hurting and broken people can find healing, wholeness and hope.
