Your Year End Gift: Daniel's Story

On this last day of 2018 we want to share a powerful story of how your partnership has enabled us to live out one of the core values of
Caroline's Promise. 

Today's value is:

"We value planting empowered and equipped leaders in the local community in order to become oaks of righteousness"
 Isaiah 61:3 "They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
(One of our favorite photos of Daniel - at a recent youth camp)

    for the display of his splendor."

Daniel is a beautiful example of the power of child sponsorship. 

A family sponsored through Caroline's Promise
Caroline's Promise partnered with the local church in Guatemala
Daniel received financial, emotional, and spiritual support
He grew and developed roots that are strong and deep
He's now investing in and ministering to kids who were like him

He shared his story with us:

(Daniel with Kendall - age 6)
"My name is Daniel and I am 20 years old. I was part of this great blessing that is child sponsorship.  Let me tell you a little about what this has done for me.  Guatemala is a country with a lot of poverty and I was a child of limited resources.  My future seemed not very good but God gave me the very best sponsor family. I received letters from them and have been able to see them through the years. 
(Daniel & Kendall 2018 - age 20)
They are like my second family and I love them.  I have no words to explain how their love for me and support changed me.

Thanks to God, I graduated and am now attending University.  I also have a very good job. I am currently a Youth Leader in my local Church with a Spirit of hunger for souls for our God.
(Leading on a recent mission trip)
I believe that Caroline's Promise fulfills what God says in Isaiah 61: 1-3 that the spirit of God is upon them because they have been a blessing for a whole community;  for a whole country like Guatemala.  They have broken borders to be able to take the good news of Salvation and carry the message to the afflicted, the poor, the orphans and the widowed mothers. They have been a means of consolation for a whole nation.  
They always go for more and that is the true meaning of a revival leaving

the four walls of the temple the four walls of your church and directly affecting a community. They have brought happiness and there is no doubt God is with them. If you are not part of this blessing and you want to bless someone's life and give them a 180 degree turn like me, make the decision to change the life of a boy or girl today."

(Daniel's sweet family)

We currently have 9 kids in the community of Gerona who need sponsors.  If you would like to invest in a child like Daniel, follow this link. 

Today is the last day to make a 2018 tax deductible contribution.  Other ways to support Caroline's Promise are listed below.

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

Last week we shared a Building of Promise Construction Update 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. 
Will you prayerfully consid…

“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!
