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.  

Thank you for partnering with us!

Standing beside each other

Oak trees are an amazing creation. They seem almost magical in their ability to grow a mighty oak tree from a tiny cute acorn. We often focus on the beauty of the tree or its acorns- but the most intriguing part might be the unseen part, its roots. The roots of the tree bring nourishment, protect against illness and drought, they even serve as an anchor when the wind blows. Without the roots, we don’t have the tree. Oak tree roots in particular are unique. When all grown, the roots might be 4-7 times larger than the width of the tree. Even if there is devastation, like a fire, a new tree can sprout from the roots of the old tree. One of my favorite parts I never knew- when Oak trees are planted beside each other, their roots can merge tougher and even graph together to become an interconnected system. Stronger, more secure, supportive. God never uses words carelessly. He said in Isaiah 61:3 “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display o

2019 - The Year of Clean Water

We are thrilled for the opportunity to provide life saving water filters and hygiene training to our communities in Guatemala this summer.  We will begin this project in June with 50 families in the community of Gerona. Each water filter will last 10 years and provide an easy and effective way to purify water. Our friends at Just One Africa have been using these filters in Kenya and we are thankful for their willingness to help us with our plan.  Check out their video of how the filters work.  Each filter is $65.  If you would like to be a part of this project, donate here.  Be sure to follow us on social media to catch all of the water filter updates to come!

Check out our NEW LOGO & WEBSITE!

In the Spring of 2018 our Board of Directors spent two days with our friend, Pam Morrison as she led us through Strategic Planning and Vision Casting.  We knew that we needed to change our logo and as we shared our hearts about what Caroline's Promise does and why it exists, it became clear that our foundation is the entire chapter of Isaiah 61. Things started clicking and it became obvious that a tree would be part of our new logo and our Vision Statement became,   "Where Hope Grows and Communities Thrive" We were able to develop our Mission, Vision, and Values .  We walked away, excited about all that God has for the next season of ministry!  For several years we have been blessed to receive pro bono marketing materials from SFW through their 24 hour Createathon.  This December they created our new logo and brochure and we love them!  Over the past few weeks our friend, Boni Russell ( BoniDesign) has worked overtime to design our new website!
