Sarah collected vitamins for her Birthday!

Sarah and her family sponsor a child in Guatemala through Caroline's Promise and they are always looking for creative ways to give even more.

For Sarah's 14th birthday she asked her friends to bring vitamins instead of gifts.  She collected 38 bottles of vitamins that will be given to the children who attend our Pediatric Clinic this summer.  Thanks so much Sarah!

We are still in need of hundreds of bottles of vitamins before our ship date the end of May.  Here are a few ways you can help us.

1.  Order at Amazon (Be sure to use Amazon Smile so your purchase earns $ for CP) and have them shipped to us at Caroline's Promise, 1950 Beeson Road, Kernersville, NC 27284

2.  Purchase vitamins and deliver to our home office (address above)

3.  Donate online here.  Choose the fund "wherever most needed" and write "vitamins" in the comment box.  We'll order them for you!

Get your friends, school, office, or church involved.  We need 800 bottles before the end of May.

Any chewable (not gummie) children's vitamin is fine.  Flinstones work great!

A Few Ways You Can Pray With Us

One of my favorite verses is found in Ephesians 3:20

One of the verses I shared on KSBJ this morning! <3 it! Thank you, Lord!:  

I have claimed this verse so many times and God has proven to be faithful.  I believe the key is to make sure that our heart is aligned with His, and to pray.  Confidently and regularly.

One of the best ways that you can partner with us at Caroline's promise is to PRAY!!
Here are a few things that we are talking to God about this month.  Won't you join us?

Summer TeamsWe have about 75 people joining us this summer and we are asking God to prepare their hearts, provide what they need, and work in and through them while 
they are with us in Guatemala. Pray for our team leaders to have wisdom and God's heart for the people on their team.  Pray for protection and health and that our team members will come back, changed and committed to the partnership. 

Our Partners:  God has given us a beautiful partnership with the Adonai Church in Guatemala and we are asking Him to continually strengthen and protect them.  As they minister daily we are asking God to fill them with Himself and bless their work.

Projects:  God has given each of our team leaders projects and activities with the focus of investing in and building up leaders at Adonai and leading people to Jesus.  There are a lot of items to be collected and funds to be given in order for these projects to take place.  Will you pray with us that God will provide all of it - either through a donation or funds to purchase?

Construction of the 3rd Floor:  We have been waiting for construction of the 3rd floor to begin and are asking God to remove the blockers that keep this from happening.  Pray for continued financial support to complete this project and for the architect and leaders of Adonai who are involved. 

Child Sponsors:  We are always in need of sponsors for our children.  Pray with us that God will move in the hearts of His people to commit to child sponsorship.  

We are so thankful for your prayer support and look forward to telling you the many ways that God used your prayers!

Child Sponsor Letters & Gifts Due by May 15

The kids LOVE getting letters from their sponsors.  I can't tell you how important this communication is and the impact it makes in their lives.  Please, please, please take the time to write a letter.  If you need suggestions on what to write, check out this blog post with ideas.

Our teams normally deliver your gifts but due to rising costs of checked baggage, we will be shipping sponsor gifts this year.  If your items are not in our office by the May 15 deadline, we will more than likely not be able to deliver it.  

Please keep gifts to items that will fit into a gallon sized zip lock bag (and close:)

This will be your last opportunity in 2017 to send a gift to your sponsored child.  Letters will be accepted in October.

Thanks so much for investing in and praying for the child that you sponsor.
