Tribute to Prosperity City

Through the combined efforts of Angie Hemric, Lisa Holbrook, myself (Jody) and the Guyana team as they took pictures while in Prosperity City, this video came into being. It is a tribute to the work being done in Prosperity City and the hope that is promised to those our team left behind. A special thank you to Angie who spent hours working on the video, getting it to the polished state we present to you. This video is set to the song Rescue from the Trading my Sorrows, Vertical Momentum album. We praise God for what He has done in Prosperity City, what He did while our team was working there, and what He continues to do in the future. May you watch with open hearts and minds as God speaks to you through this video.

A land of many waters
Polluted by the darkness that lingers
As thick as the heat of noon day

Incognito, infiltrating every corner, every space
Until, one day, the strangers came
With clear vision and strong hearts

They brought courage and hope and smiles
A moment of rest in a weary monotony

They speak in the name of a Man
A Man of Living Water
Who is their Hope, the Truth, the Way

Bridging the distance that has always been
Standing in the gap on behalf of the hopeless
Not in pride, but in great humility, serving
Loving, caring, heartbroken

They were not the first
They will not be the last

Making a difference for one
One at a time

For the next generation

Standing beside each other

Oak trees are an amazing creation. They seem almost magical in their ability to grow a mighty oak tree from a tiny cute acorn. We often focus on the beauty of the tree or its acorns- but the most intriguing part might be the unseen part, its roots. The roots of the tree bring nourishment, protect against illness and drought, they even serve as an anchor when the wind blows. Without the roots, we don’t have the tree.

Oak tree roots in particular are unique. When all grown, the roots might be 4-7 times larger than the width of the tree. Even if there is devastation, like a fire, a new tree can sprout from the roots of the old tree. One of my favorite parts I never knew- when Oak trees are planted beside each other, their roots can merge tougher and even graph together to become an interconnected system. Stronger, more secure, supportive.

God never uses words carelessly. He said in Isaiah 61:3

“They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his sp…

2019 - The Year of Clean Water

We are thrilled for the opportunity to provide life saving water filters and hygiene training to our communities in Guatemala this summer.  We will begin this project in June with 50 families in the community of Gerona.

Each water filter will last 10 years and provide an easy and effective way to purify water.

Our friends at Just One Africa have been using these filters in Kenya and we are thankful for their willingness to help us with our plan.  Check out their video of how the filters work. 

Each filter is $65.  If you would like to be a part of this project, donate here. 

Be sure to follow us on social media to catch all of the water filter updates to come!

Check out our NEW LOGO & WEBSITE!

In the Spring of 2018 our Board of Directors spent two days with our friend, Pam Morrison as she led us through Strategic Planning and Vision Casting.  We knew that we needed to change our logo and as we shared our hearts about what Caroline's Promise does and why it exists, it became clear that our foundation is the entire chapter of Isaiah 61. Things started clicking and it became obvious that a tree would be part of our new logo and our Vision Statement became,

"Where Hope Grows and Communities Thrive"
We were able to develop our Mission, Vision, and ValuesWe walked away, excited about all that God has for the next season of ministry!  For several years we have been blessed to receive pro bono marketing materials from SFW through their 24 hour Createathon.  This December they created our new logo and brochure and we love them!  Over the past few weeks our friend, Boni Russell (BoniDesign) has worked overtime to design our new website!
We are excited about 2019 and …
