There is a home in Newport for men,women and even an orphanage. I have heard the man who started this program is Mr. Bumpous. I just want to say thanks to Mr. Bumpous for all of his hard work and for caring for people in need. You have done a wonderful job. Thanks for making a difference. There is a BBQ stand set up across from Walmart to help with the homes so please support. Once again
Thanks Mr. Bumpous
been there

How can you say you are delivering Gods word? When you yourself are hurting innoncent children of God. You try to live other peoples life rather than you own. You have a huge past, yet you judge. Cant change all your spots. Yet want to change other peoples spots.

when it gets down to the nitty gritty it doesn't really matter what any of us think or say! if he's not honest he will pay one day, but if he is then this thread doesn't really matter so unless you are god urself don't worry about him and mind you own affairs! if you don't like it then stay away. i barely know the man so i dont care one way or another but really don't you have something better to do besides being jealous or spitefull?

Tim and his wife have done a very good thing for a lot of people. Thru God's help, they have a very good success rate getting people off drugs and stay off. Now, they are giving a lot of kids a safe haven to live and learn about God. They feed the hungry and clothe them with donations from everyone. They do have a great website to keep people informed.

The people that really want to get off drugs have to stay their voluntarily, if they leave, they dont get to go back. They are kept busy doing everything to keep their minds and bodies off drugs. For a donation to the church, you can ask Tim for a couple people to help you clean up your yard, move, paint, whatever you need done. These people are trying their best to get their lives back on track and become productive members of society again.

I have met and known several people that have gone thru Tim's program and they all say "thank you" to Tim and to God for helping them turn their lives around. With God's help, Tim turned his life around and truly wants to help others do the same.

I am very familiar with a a big proponent of faith-based programs, but beware of what lies beneath the surface. This program may be effective for drug/ alcohol recovery & those parolling out, but it is very DANGEROUS for anyone with a legitimate psychological disorder like bi-polar disorder. My sister is currently in the program and they have refused her medical care (psychological counseling)and bi-polar medications. She has since spun into a manic rage, left the program, removed her children from the safe & stable home of their grandmother, and sent them to live with their unfit habitual drunk father.... actions she would NEVER do in her sound mind. She is receiving bad, uneducated advice from the "counselors" there and risking the lives of her children in the process. NEW LIFE CHURCH AND ITS "COUNSELORS" HAVE BEEN NEGLIGENT IN THEIR CARE AND TREATMENT and are NOT TRAINED OR EQUIPPED TO TREAT ACTUAL PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS. NEGLIGENT!

Just a human, I would love to know what you know about this guy's past & background.

I think the person or people to ask would be the Bumpous's themselves. They have nothing to hide and will willingly share their past and let you know what God has led them out of and why they do what they do today. Your concern for your sister and her children is duly noted and I am sure that Brother Bumpous would gladly discuss the situation with you. Please don't incite slander against these good people that are doing their best to provide much needed services in our community.

Slander is a lie, right? It's true they take your meds away. I was in there 2007 and they almost cost a couple of people their life's, by not letting them have there meds. Mr. Bumpous God made medicines for us.If you can do without thats great,but don't judge other that have to have there meds! You did let certain people have meds but others not. I will nevber forget the time i was laying on the floor holding a woman in my arms because she was freaking out. Because you took her meds she had been on cold turkey. You can kill people that way. To GOD all the glory for my drug free life going on 3 years.

I would ask them what their agenda is myslef, but they won't answer/ return my phone calls. Yesterday I found out that they allowed my sister's felon, drug-addict, estranged husband to come into the state of Arkansas with an active warrant out for his arrest & suspended driver's license, and take her boys out of the state. Taking them to his mother's house with his step-father that molested him and a cousin as a child. How exactly is that 'giving kids safe haven' or protecting them? They ALLOWED a known criminal to take 2 innocent boys away from safety & stablility and place them in harms way. You better believe they will answer to God for that! Maybe I'll sit outside the "church" and wait for them to drive up in their CADILLIAC & ask what circumstance justify those actions.

Not only did they withhold her medical care and medications, they also would not allow us to help them understand her real issues. They turned her against her family - who have been on this rollercoaster with her since she was a kid, cleaned up all her messes and tried to protect her & her kids when she's manic & self-destructive.

She is now out of there and away from them & hopefully can work on getting better. Two of her children are safe, but the other 2 are still with the thug-husband and probably in the home of a pedifile. BE WARNED - FOR THIS TO HAVE HAPPENED, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT LOOKING OUT FOR THE INTEREST OF ANYONE OTHER THAN THEMSELVES!

I'm not questioning his past or what has led him to do what they do now, I'm questioning their ability to provide legitimate care for people with legitimate psychological disorders. And if anyone there was willing to 'discuss the situation' with us, my nephews would not be in the home of a pedifile right now! My sister was not in any capacity to make any decisions regarding the wellfare of her children & they were NEGLIGENT in allowing her to do so. If nothing else, they should have realized that & asked child services to interven on the children's behalf instead of allowing a criminal to remove the children from this state. AGAIN, PROJECT NEW START HAS BEEN NEGLIGENT IN MY SISTER'S CARE AND TREATMENT AND THEIR NEGLIGENCE HAS JEOPARDIZED THE WELLFARE OF MY SISTER AND 2 INNOCENT CHILDREN!
