A few ways you can pray this week

It's hard to believe we are nearing the end of January 2017.  Time flies!
We wanted to update you on a few ways that you can pray for the ministry of Caroline's Promise this week.

Lisa will head to Guatemala tomorrow with two teachers and together they will host the first Casita Teacher & Staff  Retreat.  We are so thankful to God and our amazing donors who are making this possible!  On Thursday our team will be in the classroom, observing the teachers and then later, over lunch we will hear more about their needs.  On Friday 23 of us will head to the beach where we will spend the weekend in a house, building team unity, getting closer to Jesus, and learning.

Here's how you can pray:
*  Safety in travel for the team and staff.
*  Health.  All 3 team members have had some physical junk going on.
*  Jesus - that He will show up and show off!  We are specifically asking that if any of our teachers and staff don't know Jesus personally, that they will by the end of the weekend and that all will experience His love and begin to understand his amazing purpose in their lives.
*  Unity.  We are excited about the leadership, teachers, and staff for 2017 and we are expecting God to begin this school year with team unity that will continue throughout the year.
*  Open minds and hearts to learn from each other and grow in every area.  Rest and relaxation.
*  Pray for continued enrollment of students at Casita.

When the teachers head home the first of next week, Lisa's brother, Brian will arrive and assist with plans for Summer mission teams.  Please pray for the right connections to be made and for a true understanding of how Caroline's Promise can assist our partners in the work that they are doing. 

We could not do any of this without your prayers!  Thank you for partnering with us!
