Caroline’s Promise is blessed to have an amazing team of co-laborers. These volunteers come in the form of prayer partners, child-sponsors, mission-trip-goers, financial partners, builders, teachers, one-time-gift-givers, administrative assisting, organizers and more… As a mostly-volunteer ministry, there is absolutely no way that we could do what we do without their help!
In the past few years God has sent us people who not only support the ministry, but really listen to God and share their ideas with us. Like the church in Corinth (2 Corinthians 8:1-14, the Message), “they had first given themselves unreservedly to God and then to us. The other giving simply flowing out of the purposes of God working in their lives”. One family of co-laborers, after listening to God and giving themselves for His purposes, found His plans and their passion for books mingle together. While shopping for their sponsored children in Guatemala, they felt led to purchase Bibles for them. The response from their sponsor children was overwhelming, as most children in Guatemala do not have any books in their homes, let alone a Bible. As the family prayed, they shared with us that they would like to personally purchase Bibles for every child at Casita. “It will take us a while, but we are committed,” the family told us. “Would it be possible for us to purchase several a month and have them sent to Caroline’s Promise?” Little did they know that we had been asking God for a way to provide Bibles for all of the children! Because of their faithfulness to God’s leading, the first shipment of books arrived this week.
“They gave offerings of whatever they could- far more than they could afford! – pleading for the privilege of helping out in the relief of the poor…”(2 Corinthians 8:3,4 MSG)
One family, one burden laid on their hearts…a ripple-effect of blessing for their faithfulness…what has God pressed on your heart to offer? Would you partner with us, stepping in faith to share in the work of caring for orphans? Your seemingly small gift is a treasure of hope for those who will receive it….
