Wilson Community Church hits the ground running!

Wilson Community Church team arrived in Guatemala this past Friday and hit the ground running! On Sunday the team was able to attend the first QuinceaƱera held for girls that attend our church in the community of Gerona.  The four girls were able to dress in prom dresses, with hair and makeup complete. Although we thought this was not a big deal, bringing the dresses, the make-up, and the hair accessories for the girls, we were taken aback by their overwhelming sense of gratitude and their excitement. Many moms expressed that this was a gift from God as they would have not been able to give justice to this momentous occasion without the team’s help. The ceremony was beautiful and a learning experience even to those of us that are familiar with this celebration. On Monday  the team took th graders to Pana for the night. It was a lot of fun to watch them outside of the school. The children got to swim, play, shop, and talk. Being able to listen and love on this

The Vine Wesleyan Church invests in Guatemala

We were so excited to have The Vine Wesleyan Church back with us this year.  Led by their Youth Pastor, Monty Ader, and our CP volunteer, Kaitlyn Armstrong, this team spent a busy week hosting music camp at both Casita Adonai and for kids in the community of Gerona.   The team was especially touched by the kids in Gerona as the number grew daily!   Several teachers from the team worked with our teachers at Casita Adonai and we are hearing that it was one of the best received sessions they have ever had.  The team also partnered with youth and young adults from Iglesia Adonai to host an evangelistic outreach service for teens in the community.  Two people accepted Jesus for the first time! We hope to share many more testimonies from this team, but in the meantime here are their sentences from their debrief on   "What God taught me" God taught me that no matter where you are or where you come from we are all the

Largest Team of the Year Ministers Through Art & Basketball

It was a busy week for our Family and Teen Team that ended up bigger than we planned.  Even though this was a large team we couldn't have asked for better attitudes and team work!  The family team, led by Stephanie DiMora spent the week teaching art to the kids at Casita Adonai.  As the kids learned new forms of art, they heard words of truth spoken over them. "God made you a masterpiece" "Jesus adores you" "He likes the way you look" "He's proud of you!" The week ended with an art expo where the parents were able to view the masterpieces.  We are always looking for ways to build community and interact with these families and the art expo was a wonderful opportunity to do just that! Our teen team ministered in the community through a basketball camp that was held at a local park.  Kids and teens from the community came and not only learned basketball techniques but learned what Jesus says about faith, peace, and forgiv
