Yard Sale This Saturday For Casita!

Wilson Community Church sent a team of 10 people to Guatemala June 21-29th for the 2nd year in a row. The team partnered with Caroline's Promise out of Kernersville, NC founded by Lisa and David Holbrook. While in Guatemala they worked at a school in the worse part of the city. 

Casita Adonia provides a Christian education to 125 children in grades pre-k through 6th. The school is over crowded and has no room to add additional classes.  Also, the current school is in rough condition (half the building is missing a roof and the other half has leak holes; water and power isn't safe; there is only a small room for the children to play, as it isn't safe for them to be outside for Physical Education). So Caroline's Promise has been working for the last year to raise $100,000 to build a new school for the children to attend. Currently, they have raised half of what is needed.

"These children captured the hearts of many on our team, so we want to help them continue their education." said Buffy Poole-team leader.  WCC's Guatemala missions is taking the step this Saturday to help raise the remaining funds.There will be a Yard Sale starting at 7am in the parking lot of Wilson Community Church. 100% of the proceeds will go toward the missions for Casita Adonia. Please come out and support this great cause. If you would like to make a donation you may mail them to Caroline's Promise 1950 Beeson Rd. Kernersville, NC  attn: building fund.
