Big News! $12,000 Matching Grant Given for 3rd floor Soccer Court Concrete!

We told you that our most pressing need is $20,000 to pour the concrete that will be the ceiling of the second floor and base of the soccer/sport court. This space will be used by our school and church but will also allow us to offer a soccer league to the community as a form of outreach. 
We need to pour the concrete ASAP before April rains come. 
 
We are thrilled to announce that a friend of Caroline's Promise has offered a $12,000 Matching Grant toward this project.
This means that every $1 you give will be matched, becoming $2.
Thank you Jesus!

The soccer/sport court will be here. We can't wait to see kids and families from the community enjoying this space and finding Jesus! Do you see those trees that God planted years ago? We think it was His dream to have this rooftop play space in area where kids can't safely play outside. So he went ahead and planted those trees in advance.

Building of Promise Fundraiser for Lisa's Birthday!

In 2013, God gave me a vision for a 3 story building at our partner church, Iglesia Adonai.  At the time, they had a one story structure that they shared with their school, Casita Adonai.  The roof was leaking and we assumed that we would just help them put a new roof on.  I clearly remember standing in my church’s sanctuary during a service when the vision came.  It wasn’t a new roof.  It was a building.   Over the next year, you helped us raise funds, and in March of 2014, we started the project.  The existing building was torn down, and over the next 4 years we raised money, built a little, raised more money, built some more.   Because of your support, students are learning in those classrooms today and church members are using the space for classes.  Our artisan group, Florecer works weekly in the space that you helped us provide.  Children and families are finding hope through Jesus, and leaders are being developed in that space.   We are so close to being finished.  The final stage…

To comfort all who mourn

Last Spring, our Board of Directors met with a Strategic Planning Team.  We felt like it was time to refocus and ask God what He wanted for His ministry.  The process seemed a bit cloudy and overwhelming when we began, but then He showed up, and we realized that we share the same heart: His heart for the people of Guatemala.  

He gave us a new Vision Statement: 

"A world where hope grows and communities thrive"
He gave us a new Mission Statement: 

"Growing relationships that nourish individuals and communities to be whole  and thrive in Jesus Christ" 
He clarified our objectives and helped us set goals.  We walked away knowing that the scripture that He so often had brought to us in the past would continue to be our theme.  Over the next few weeks, I hope to share stories of how your partnership with us in Guatemala is bringing Isaiah 61 to life.  Perhaps you would like to join me in praying this scripture daily or weekly over our community here in the states, as well a…

2019 - The Year of Clean Water

We are thrilled for the opportunity to provide life saving water filters and hygiene training to our communities in Guatemala this summer.  We will begin this project in June with 50 families in the community of Gerona.

Each water filter will last 10 years and provide an easy and effective way to purify water.

Our friends at Just One Africa have been using these filters in Kenya and we are thankful for their willingness to help us with our plan.  Check out their video of how the filters work. 

Each filter is $65.  If you would like to be a part of this project, donate here. 

Be sure to follow us on social media to catch all of the water filter updates to come!
