New School, Empty Rooms










By now you have probably heard the amazing news: the first floor of the school we are building in Guatemala is completed!  We are so thankful for all of your prayers and help! We will continue to raise funds for the second and third floors. However, right now we are in desperate need of desks, now that the number of classrooms has increased, as well as locking file cabinets for our teachers and administration.

Can you help?  Perhaps you know of a ministry, school group, or business that would like to sponsor one of these items. Even the smallest donation is a much-appreciated step in the right direction.

You can donate here: http://www.carolinespromise.net/make-a-donation
Please choose the fund "Guatemala Orphan Projects" and write the item in the comment box.

8 locking desks for teachers -  $100 each
2 File Cabinets for Administrator's office - $175 each
8 Chairs - $80 each
8 File Cabinets for teachers - $300 each

Deadline approaching for Summer mission trips to Guatemala



The January 31st deadline for Summer mission trip applications is approaching fast! We still have space for families or teens to join a team traveling to Guatemala City for the week of June 27th - July  4th. The cost of this trip is $1900 including airfare.

This team will include a family team (parents and kids ages 10+) and a teen team (teens ages 14+), but adults of all ages are welcome!  We will operate as one big team at for meals, travel, and housing, but our focuses of ministry will be different and individualized for each group.

Team members can choose which area of ministry they would like to concentrate based on their interests and skills, and both teams will help with light construction on our new building.

Family team: Focuses on teaching art to our kids at Casita Adonai, incorporating lessons about God and His love for them. The week will end with an exhibition of art from the students. Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, you will teach (and learn about) much more than just art!

Teen team: Focuses on partnering with the teens of our partner church and conducting outreach in the community.  We will work to clean and repair a local park and host an evangelistic sports camp for kids in the community.

God already has great things planned for this week! Apply by January 31st if you feel called to join us.
