Being a Child in Guatemala

Each day has been a day to watch Hunter. But on Sunday it was extra special as Hunter got to do many things with the children at the church and also in the community of Gerona. Once arriving at the church some of the children that attend Casita came running up to him. Pablo and Marco are two boys that wanted Hunter to come and sit with them. So he joined in on the children’s lesson learning about Jesus by music and games. Hunter really enjoyed getting to sit in a circle with several of the children. “I got to give my first offering in a Guatemala church”, said Hunter.

Headed to Guatemala on Wednesday

Caroline's Promise takes several short term teams each year.  On October 16 a team of child sponsors will travel to Guatemala to be a part of Casita Adonai's first 6th grade graduation.  We appreciate your prayers for safety and health.  Will you also join us in praying that the families of the children will sense God's presence throughout the festivities?

Our team will deliver gifts to the kids from their sponsors, administer flouride to all students, meet with the women involved int he Threads of Hope Sewing Project, and make plans for 2014 partnership and ministry.

One of the projects we will explore is the possibility of taking a Heritage Trip in 2014.  This team will consist of adoptive families whose children were born in Guatemala.  Our team this week includes one such family - Tripp & Buffy Poole.  Their son, Hunter is 7 years old and was born in Guatemala in 2006.  He is in the second grade and is very active in church, school, and sports.  Hunter and his fami…
