At 63 years of age, Jim Lamont retired from a successful career as a top sales rep for the Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company. Together with his lovely wife, Georgia, they went to language school at King’s Way Missionary School in McAllen, Texas. After graduating, they served in Iquitos, Peru, for 8 months with their daughter and son-in-law, Ron and Annette Thiesen, helping in many areas, especially training children’s workers.

In 1995, they set off for Honduras to start an orphanage and minister to the churches in and around the capital city of Tegucigalpa. The Lord directed them to a beautiful valley with 50 acres of fertile soil for farming with pine trees, mountains and creeks.

This is the setting for New Life Children’s Home (NLCH) in the village of Jalaca. After building a two-story building 50 x 100 feet, they were given seven children by the Honduran Social Services in September, 2003. By Christmas of 2003, 10 more children were placed in their care. Now, after 10 years, there are 43 children with more buildings and housing facilities added.
