Bethany Family Sponsorship Update
View this email in your browser
In 2011 we partnered with Bethany Christian Services, in order to provide sponsorship for 77 families in Guatemala, currently.  This program is in place to help educate adults and children through monthly classes, help the kids attend school, provide more nutritious food, build relationships, and share the Gospel.  We hope to help build healthier family units--emotionally, physically, spiritually, and financially.
The ultimate goal is to help each family start a business within 3-5 years, in order to help them become financially self-sustainable and graduate from the sponsorship program.  On August 6, we launched our first business with Dona Louisa, Angelica, Mayra Lucia, and Jesica!  We restored a Tienda (store) and helped purchase A LOT of new inventory for the family to sell, along with a new freezer so they can now sell chocobananos and ice cream.  The family lives right next to a school and the chocobananos and ice cream are big sellers!  We are still mentoring the family on a weekly basis for the next several months to help ensure the business is a success and if so, they will be our first graduates from the sponsorship program!  The family used to earn about $15/week.  In the first 2 DAYS of business, the family earned $60!  Dona Louisa cares for her 3 granddaughters who lost both parents several years ago.  Dona Louisa is so excited that her girls now have an opportunity to provide a good living for themselves, even after she is gone.  They are so thankful for the way God continues to care for and provide for their family!  If you feel called to partner with us and sponsor a family, please visit and help impact a family's life today!
