The Impact of Years of Sponsorship

Last Wednesday afternoon, Bob Beaver had the opportunity to meet his sponsor child who he has had the privilege of investing in for the past six years. This was a special day for Bob since he not only got to meet his sponsor child, but also her mom, who is a single mom  to three girls. 

Bob and his wife Joy are long time supporters of Caroline’s Promise and have been there since the very beginning. 

Bob had the opportunity to meet not only his sponsor child during this trip, but also her sister and mother Marta. Katherine’s mom Marta is a teacher at our partner school, Casita Adonai. Katherine’s mom said that the help they have received through our sponsorship program has made an enormous impact in their lives. This partnership has allowed Katherine’s mom to help provide for her family through some very difficult times. Marta explained how the Beaver’s commitment to love and serve her family means so much to her as a single mother. 

Partnering with Caroline’s Promise gives people the unique opportunity to connect with the people they support. These relationships are critical for the children. It shows the kids that there are people that believe in them. 
Bob has had the chance to speak the truth into this family that he chose years ago to invest in. 

The Beaver family has experienced the joy that comes with sponsorship and partnering with this family.

“Who told you that?”

This is my second mission trip to Guatemala. Last year was an eye-opening and humbling experience for me. Last year I was very nervous about coming and had an overall negative attitude. This year I felt I was being called to come and went in with a more positive attitude. I chose this week to come, because this year I was coming without my mom and brother and I knew both of the leaders, Ruth and Jacey. It turned out the week I chose to come, we were going to be doing a girls retreat. 
We arrived Friday around lunchtime and headed from the airport to Delmi’s so we could get settled in and get lunch and rest before we headed to Shama, a camp in Gerona. We prepared for the girls arrival, some of us helped with decorations and some of us decided to get to sleep early. 

Waking up Saturday morning, I was anxious for the girls to get there. I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to make an impact on the girls or that the language barrier would keep me from helping out. 

Then, one of our team …

Will you help Florecer to purchase sewing machines?

Caroline’s Promise artisan group, Florecer, is growing!

Thanks to our new friend, Meredith Ferrell, the group has several new products to make, requiring higher quality sewing machines. We would like to be able to purchase 6 quality sewing machines. The average cost for each machine is $500. We have raised $510 to date. 
Changing the world doesn’t mean giving hand outs. Changing the world means providing jobs, training, education, and sharing Jesus. By partnering with us to purchase sewing machines, you become a world changer. You are making an impact on an artisan’s life. It gives her work. Work gives her income to feed her children and pay tuition and gives her dignity. Worth and dignity. Partnering with us to provide sewing machines brings worth and dignity to women, children, and families living in an impoverished country. Be a world changer!
You can donate here. We appreciate your support!

Things Change for a Reason

Meetings, Dates, Deadlines: us humans spend so much time trying to control the time given to us on this Earth, that we become obsessed with making sure everything goes according to plan. However it's only when things take an unexpected turn and we are forced to leave our comfort zones when God is able to get to work.
This year's trip to Guatemala was by no means similar to the year previous in the aspect of scheduling. Last year was pretty smooth sailing with minimal obstacles diverging us from our plan. This year however was completely different. While the purpose of this trip was to help and interact with the kids in Gerona, God decided that he wanted us to help at the Church as well. Even on the very first day that our team arrived in Guatemala our plans changed. What was originally going to be a rest day to acclimate ourselves, turned into us moving 900 cement blocks up to the third floor of the church. However I believe that God had those blocks delivered at that time fo…
