Sponsorship and School Support Needs

Looking for a way to invest your time, money, or talents?

There are two specific areas where we can use your help. We would love for you to partner with us in one of the following ways:

Child Sponsorship

Our most pressing need is for sponsors in our Gerona Preschool Program.  We currently have 5 children who will have to leave the preschool if we can’t find sponsors for them. You can read more about how this Preschool Program got started here.

Once we find sponsors for the Gerona preschool kids, we will have an ongoing need for sponsors of kids at Casita Adonai and the community of Gerona.

Sponsorship costs $40 per month and helps cover tuition and/or food staples.

Financial Support for Casita Adonai

      One of our greatest burdens is finding a way to keep the doors of this school open.  Because of the poverty in the community, it is very hard for us to increase tuition and yet, we are required by law to pay the teachers a salary that they deserve, but that is impossible to cover with tuition alone.  Our Board of Directors is looking for creative solutions but in the meantime we are short $1,500 per month.  We either need monthly donors or people who can host fundraisers to support this need. Casita Adonai offers a safe, loving environment for kids who would be lost in the overcrowded public schools.  Will you help us support the school?  

Monthly donors
If you would like to donate monthly, you can set up your payments here

Host a fundraiser
Would you like to host an event? We would be happy to provide information about the needs as well as any materials. Contact us if you would like to help in this way!

Thank you for investing.  We couldn’t do any of this without you!  If you have ideas of ways that you can partner with us, please let us know!  We would love to brainstorm with you.

“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…
