Or this page.

Remember that Facebook is waiving transaction fees for all donations made on #GivingTuesday so if you see this after 8:30am - you are still making the most of your giving by donating on Tuesday, November 28.

Spread the word and help us complete the Building of Promise in Guatemala!





#GivingTuesday - Help us spread the word!

It's not too late!  Set up a personal fundraising page on Facebook today and give your friends the opportunity to partner with you on Tuesday!

All who set up pages prior to #GivingTuesday and raise at least $500 by the end of 2017 will be entered into a drawing for incredible prizes including $100 gift cards that can be used for hotels & travel.  Give it a try!  The excitement on #GivingTuesday will be hard to miss and your friends need to know who to give to!



On #GivingTuesday (November 28, 2017) YOU can help us raise money to complete the Building of Promise by creating a personal fundraising page on Facebook. 

On Tuesday, Facebook will waive the transaction fees for donations made on a Facebook Fundraising Page and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is donating $2 Million that day to charities by matching every dollar given on one of these pages.  

The giving starts on Tuesday at 8am EST and will be given until the $2 Million is gone.  We think it will go quickly!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Caroline's Promise! 





We are so thankful for everyone who has ever prayed for or given to this ministry. We could not do what we do without the support from you!

Enjoy this day with your friends and family and reflect on what you are thankful for!

New Plans for the Building of Promise - We Need You!

When the Building of Promise was first planned we knew that it would have 3 floors.  The vision that God gave us clearly showed 3 levels and it was confirmed over and over when random people in Guatemala who didn't know about the project, told us of their dreams of a 3 story building that God would use to draw the community to Him.  You helped us build the first and second floors which have provided large classrooms, a beautiful library, offices,and a computer lab.  The church and school use this space daily.  Originally we thought that the third floor would be used to offer middle school grades, but after a lot of research, we have
determined that the cost involved is not the best use of the resources God has given.

I will admit, after several years of envisioning middle school grades in this space, I was a little confused when it became clear that this was not God's plan.  As a team, we began to look at this inner city community and our eyes were opened to the growing nee…

Middle School Camp Update!

Thank you to everyone who sponsored a teen for youth camp in Guatemala. Our middle schoolers recently returned from their camp.





The theme of this year's camp was, "The Misuse of Time and Technology". This year's camp included middle schoolers from Adonai Church and the community of Gerona. We love how the sister churches are working together.






We are so proud of our youth and young adults at Adonai Church who are rising up and leading the next generation. Many of these leaders were in our child sponsorship program. It has been amazing to see how child sponsorship impacts and molds the leaders at Adonai.





The youth at Adonai Church also did fundraisers to pay for their way to camp. The only money Caroline's Promise needed to raise was for the teens in Gerona. Because of this, more teens in Gerona were able to attend.





We want to thank everyone who helped send these teens to camp! They had an awesome time learning about technology and how God fits into it all.

Hold Fast Coffee - "Que Rico!"

In Guatemala when something tastes delicious we say "Que Rico!"
Once again our friends at Hold Fast Coffee have created a special blend from Guatemala just for Caroline's Promise.  We are thankful for their partnership and investment in the work that God is doing in Guatemala.   All proceeds from the sell of this coffee will go to the completion of the Building of Promise in Guatemala City.

You can order your ground coffee here or enjoy a cup or two at "Celebrate & Participate" on Friday, November 17.  This adorable owl mug from Guatemala will be available in our Fair Trade Market at the event.
