Our Projects

At New Harvest Ministries International Inc., we focus on various projects including drilling fresh water wells, pastor training, evangelism, building churches, working with orphans and so much more.  We have a large variety of current projects that you can be part of. We would love to have you be part of the New Harvest team!

Fresh Water Wells

Over 100,000 families in India enjoy clean, fresh water as a result of New Harvest Ministries providing wells in more than 100 villages.  A well dedication ceremony is held for each new well, allowing the unreached to hear the Gospel.  Lives are changed, as fresh drinking water and the Living Water is carried into remote areas. 

Wells are also now being brought into remote areas in Africa, making the local church the central point of attention in these villages. A well was placed on the site in 2023 where the New School is being constructed in Mpanda, TZ. A well and irrigation system is now functioning at the farming project as well making that a much more productive operation.

$5,000 is needed to drill a well. Contact us if you, your group, your church, or your business would like to sponsor a well. The grateful villages place a plaque in honor of those who provided the well at the well site!


Well dedication ceremonies in India often lead to the need for a prayer house for the new believers in that village.  As the family of believers grows, a larger church building is needed and the prayer house becomes the home for the Pastor and his family.

As of August 2023, there is a need for 6 prayer houses or churches to be constructed and for additions to 2 churches to be completed in India.

Churches in East Africa are being birthed very rapidly, counting 36 since January 1, 2023. The Brick Factory in Mpanda is helping greatly with reducing the cost of constructing these buildings. There are several that are under construction at this time. Help will be needed to provide for such items as the roof and wiring.

Pastor Training

There are currently 6 branches of New Harvest Bible College operating across Tanzania. More than 1,300 graduates are establishing churches and evangelizing cities and villages in Tanzania, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, and Democratic Republic of Congo.  Two of these colleges are in need of replacement equipment.  You can provide this equipment with only a $1,500 donation.

In India, over 1,200 pastors and evangelists have graduated from the Bible Colleges and are preaching and teaching the gospel. Special training seminars for pastors and leaders is also provided. A convention center for the annual gathering of churches and pastors is under construction.  


Open air gospel meetings are held in cities, villages, and very remote areas across India and the countries of East Africa.  Over 1,000,000 souls have come to salvation in Jesus Christ through these meetings.  

Annual conferences are held each year in India and in Tanzania. People from many of the churches travel there and stay and eat on the conference grounds for a week of encouragement and fellowship. Special teaching seminars are held to train and equip the pastors and leaders.

Orphans and Widows

Faith In Action Ministries of India operates homes for widows and orphanages that house children. Funds are constantly needed to provide necessities and pay staff. They also need to add on to one of the orphanages to care for more children.  $20,000 will be needed for this expansion. Frequent changes in governmental regulations and requirements continue to raise operational expenses.  

Light Way ministries of India has established a training school for widows in the tribal areas to teach them sewing skills to help them provide for themselves and their families.

Pastor Laban and the churches of NHMI Tanzania support families in the communities and the Nyargusu refugee camp who have chosen to take orphans into their homes to care for them.


The Elizabeth Day School, in Dehradun, India, teaches 120 students Pre-K through 8th grade.  Construction is beginning on the 4th floor for more classrooms, a library, an office and rooms for the teachers. The government has issued permission to expand to include all middle school classes. The cost on this project will be $20,000.

Pastor Laban has been operating a successful nursery and daycare center in Mpanda, Tanzania for children 3-5 years of age. The students learn English, preparing them for their bright futures.

Recently, a 4 acre parcel of land has been purchased for building an elementary school with K-8th grades. A water well has been drilled and the land preparations and foundation are now beginning to be laid as of August 2023.

  • Phase 1 will include: Administration Offices, a Kitchen, Bathrooms, Classrooms, and Playground. The cost is $48,000.
  • Phase 2 will include: Additional Classrooms, a Nurse Station, a Library, Staff Housing, and a Sports Field. The cost is estimated at $100,000.

Health Care

A young pastor Tanzania, whose studies were supported by NHMI, saw a great need for health care and felt called to go to medical school to provide for this need. With the help of Pastor Laban, a medical dispensary was opened in Mpanda.


Mothers & Children

The maternity/infant care ward next to the dispensary has now also been constructed, along with a pharmacy, and a small laboratory.  

$35,000 is needed to purchase more equipment and supplies to upgrade this dispensary to Health Center Facility status.

Machine Shop

Pastor Laban sold parts from a non-functioning tractor and excavator and used the money to start a machine shop. He hired some young men who have graduated from the local technical school to start a business of welding, manufacturing, recycling, and repairing farm equipment and other machinery to earn money for the ministry. 

They have also built beds, examination tables, and laboratory furniture for the medical dispensary.

Thanks to your sacrificial giving, Pastor Laban was able to purchase a new vehicle to use for his ministry travels and a beautiful bus for the school children and for transporting the ministry teams to and from churches and outreaches. Along with this, motorbikes were purchased for several bishops to reach the churches that they oversee. 

The Elizabeth School was recently blessed with a new bus!

Thanks to your sacrificial giving, Pastor David was able to purchase a new vehicle for the ministry. However, $20,000 is needed to supply a bus for the boy’s orphanage.
