About Ministerio Nueva Tierra

In 2006, Pastor Jose Guardian from the Hispanic Church of Medicine Hat had the initiative to start an outreach in Brooks. He began to visit some Hispanic people who had just settled in this town because of work.

 


In November of the 2006 a group of 16 workers arrived from El Salvador, and in March of 2008 the first Colombians of 300 hired by the company Lakeside Packers began to arrive, also 20 Mexicans arrived later on, therefore the Hispanic population grew in Brooks. Most of them spoke non-English and all of them had left their wives and children back in their countries.
