New Beginnings International MinistriesBringing truth to Uganda that each life matters
New Beginnings Int. Ministries
P.O. Box 1975
Jinja, Uganda, East Africa
Phone: +256 785 923 355
Since 2009, New Beginnings International Ministries has been defending the innocent, the needy ones and the vulnerable in the eastern region of Uganda and in the refugee camps of the north. In a country filled with poverty, crippled by an AIDS epidemic, and wrecked by war, it’s estimated that over 20% of maternal deaths are caused by complications from abortions provided through an illegal, secretive network. The ministry shares the love of God and teaches young women that abortion ends a valuable human life.
Radio programs are part of their outreach efforts, as are trained volunteers who counsel women facing unplanned pregnancies. Led by native Ugandan Henry Isoba, a bold vision includes creating awareness through schools, hosting conferences for church leaders and other officials, and launching healthcare centers. The ministry also extends its care to orphans, for example, by paying school fees and providing school supplies.
New Beginning Ruth House
New Beginnings and its team of volunteers recently opened Ruth House. It’s a place where fear can be replaced with peace and babies can be born in safety, and mothers can be given vocational education. For every young lady who finds refuge at Ruth House, there is a new beginning.
Our goal is to raise $24,000 to operate Ruth House and continue saving lives!
Joyful Hope MinistriesProviding tools and teaching to fight evil and restore faith
Patrick and Joy Campbell lead a highly successful spiritual SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) Team where they teach the faithful how to deal with and immobilize spiritual attacks from the enemy. Healing and reconciliation occur on regular basis when the Campbells gather to teach, pray with and spiritually empower those who are searching for individual and family healing. As founders of the Cross of St. Benedict Society, their members grew to over 56,000 intercessors in 2019 united in prayer for the healing of families. They use social media to evangelize and to keep their connections with the society members.
They also are Youtube Video Bloggers under JOYFULHOPE TV, documenting God moments in their family and mission life, and they share their message and teachings in conferences in the U.S. and Canada. Patrick and Joy accompany spiritually afflicted families back to the sacraments by praying with them and giving their testimony of healing. Then, they teach them to use the sacramental of the Church and the gifts of the Holy Spirit to fight evil in their family life.

The Joey Hale FundAn educational and inspiring film for families
The Joey Hale Fund
P.O. Box 43217
Birmingham, Alabama 35243
On June 19, 1976, Joey Hale’s family was involved in a horrific hit and run car accident caused by a drunk driver. The accident left a four-year-old Joey and his five-year-old sister with brain damage and his father in a body cast unable to work for 18 months. With the help of their friends and family, the Hales survived this difficult time and life continued. Then just when you think it could not get any worse for this family, Joey was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of twelve. A few hours after the doctors removed the tumor, Joey suffered a series of seizures that left him paralyzed, nearly blind and unable to talk.
The Joey Hale Story, a documentary directed and produced by Dana Falletta Abercrombie and J. Neil Bloomer, is about the power of faith, football, friendship, and community coming together to do what is right for a remarkable family in need. The Joey Hale Fund was created to support the production of this inspirational film that tells how the “pay it forward” gestures of kindness from a friend of a friend kept this family going. Family, friends, neighbors, customers, co-workers, bosses, classmates, teachers, doctors, nurses, children, dogs, a pack of wild deer and even strangers lend a voice to tell the tale of Joey Hale, one of God’s walking miracles.
