Team Member Share Their Story

 Kaitlyn and Chelsea joined Caroline's Promise this summer in Guatemala. Kaitlyn served this year as a leader in training and this was Chelsea's first trip with us. They shared their experiences with their home church in Charlotte and wrote about that experience. 

"We felt right at home as we listened to the International Service at United Wesleyan Church on Sunday morning. What a privilege we were given to be a part of this awesome service. With the Latino praise band, Spanish music, and translation of languages, Chelsea and I felt as if we were back in the much loved country of Guatemala. It was only a few weeks before, that we were doing the same things at Iglesia Adonai.


During the middle of the service, Pastor Jeff Haynes invited us up to the stage to share our testimonies and a song. I shared about Caroline's Promise and what we do in Guatemala and other countries. I also shared my sentence of what God has done in my life since the beginning of our trip to Guatemala. I was able to tell the congregation about how God broke chains and freed not only the children of Casita Adonai, but my friends and team members. Chelsea was able to share about how God's plan is greater than hers. She talked about giving her testimony during church and the girls' service at camp. She gave the congregation an awesome example of how God is sovereign and takes control of our lives.

To finish our time, we sang the song "You'll Come" by Hillsong United in English and Spanish. We were honored to sing this song in testimony of what God has done for the people of Guatemala and both of our teams that attended this summer. Gracias a Dios!"
