​“Everywhere I go in Laos I meet addicts. New Life House is the one place I would point them to for real help, hope, and a chance at new life.


Before I came to New Life House I was addicted to drugs and alcohol. I grew up without a father and found refuge in a gang. At age 8 or 10, smoking and drinking had become a regular part of my life. I threw my life into drugs, ruining every relationship I had.

My brother told me about New Life House so I decided to come for help. The program and help of the New Life House community completely set me free from drugs. And the transformation went deeper: When I joined the program, I struggled a lot with anger, leading to a lot of fights with others at New Life House. Discipline and authority drove me crazy. But slowly, my heart began to change.

Today I call New Life House home. I feel I belong. The love, patience and grace we experience here has touched me and the other residents.

Since coming to New Life House I have learned to love others, respect authority and to lead a disciplined life. I have learned how to raise fish, frogs, do organic gardening and construction, and have learned so much about grace and forgiveness.​

By grace I completed four years of studies in Thailand and returned to New Life House for leadership training. I married, then returned to my village, found a good job and I pass on what I have learned.
