Kids at Casita love their new library

Last Spring we asked you to help us purchase books for the library at Casita Adonai and you came through!  Over 100 books were purchased and taken to Guatemala where our summer teams added them to the current collection.  The teachers on our teams worked hard to code all of the books by grade level and other members of our teams spruced the room up with paint, new furniture, and artwork by the students at Hayworth Christian School in High Point, NC.  A special highlight was when our teachers shared their experiences with the Casita teachers on how to best use the library and teaching kids to read.   The teachers at Casita are taking their students to the library regularly and report that this is often the highlight of their week.  Very few families have books in their homes because they are so expensive, so having a library is a treat!  We were even able to deliver adult books for our teachers to enjoy in their lounge. Thank you for investing in our st

Exciting Activities at Casita Adonai

It's a busy time of year at Casita Adonai.  Earlier this month our students participated in one of their favorite activities where they chose the King and Queen of the school.  On September 15th the school participated in Independence Day Festivities where they carried a torch to the celebration at the University. This was a great opportunity for the parents and students to promote Casita Adonai.   As the school year comes to an end the students are busy preparing for exams.  Thank you for your prayers for the teachers and students.  

Send a Teen to Camp!

It's that time of year again!  Iglesia Adonai, our partner church in Guatemala is hosting two camps for teens in November.  The youth and leaders from Adonai are planning the camps and raising support for their trip.  They have asked us to partner with them to sponsor teens from the community of Gerona to attend. Teens ages 12-14 will attend camp November 4 and 5th and teens ages 15 - 20 will attend November 25 and 26.  The cost is $40 per teen and donations can be made here.   If you would like to sponsor a specific teen please look at the photo album here and comment underneath their photo.  Thanks for partnering with us!  We are trusting God to continue the work that He has been doing in their lives.

Fun Times

Here's a glimpse into the 2017 Northwest Athlete & Medical Team

How the Northwest Athlete - Medical Team came to be

In the summer of 2016, 15 year old Cameron Holbrook shared how he felt that Caroline's Promise needed more men on their mission teams.  His heart was touched by the boys and young men he had met in Guatemala and he began to pray for men to catch a vision for the ministry. That Fall Cameron played football for the first time and met Coach Jared Rolfes who was not only a great coach but a follower of Jesus.  Cameron asked Coach Rolfes if he would be interested in taking a team of guys to Guatemala and that opened the door for Lisa to have several conversations with him.  We all laugh that Coach Rolfes turned Lisa down 3 times ! Kristi Clary at the medical clinic in Gerona Once he finally agreed to take a team, he invited Phillip Clary to join him.  In the weeks that followed, Phillip's wife, Kristi expressed an interest in going on what we thought would be an English teaching team at the same time.  Lisa remembered that Kristi was a nurse for a local pediatrician, Le

God taught me.........

We don't just take short term mission teams to be taking them.  We try to be purposeful in our planning, making sure that we are doing projects and ministry that our Guatemalan partners need and request.  We are constantly reminded that God puts the people that He wants on each team.  It's a privilege to serve with them and watch God work in and through them. One of our teams was led by Kaitlyn Armstrong, Ruth Edward, and our amazing interns. "During our week in Guatemala, we were able to partner with church members and school staff to provide a variety of ministry opportunities. While working with the women, we were able to share our personal testimonies and encourage the mothers to be unified with their daughters. We were able to partner with Casita Adonai and chaperone the sixth grade trip, serving the students and providing devotional time. Throughout the remainder of the week, we teamed up to provide English classes and partnered with the school to update
