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 family have sponsored two children, Luis & Nora through Caroline's Promise for the past 3 years.


The last two summers Tripp and Buffy have traveled to Guatemala with their church to assist Caroline's Promise with ministry at Iglesia and Casita Adonai.  After returning this summer Hunter expressed a great deal of interest in going back to his birth country.  This week will be Hunter's first mission trip and his first trip back to Guatemala.  He hopes to get ideas on how to help the children of Guatemala receive a better education.  Be sure to check back this week for updates and to see Guatemala through Hunter's eyes!
