The Potter's House is located in the heart of Guatemala City next to the largest garbage dump in Latin America. More than 11,000 people live and work in the dump and almost 6,500 of those are children. These people are called scavengers and treated little better than the garbage that they live in. The Potter's House has been serving this area for 24 years providing food, shelter, training, and most importantly teaching them that they are beloved children of God and they are treasures and precious in His eyes.
We will be providing a Bible School program for the kids during the day while building a home for a family, building bunk beds for the homes, going on prayer walks around the dump, and loving on the people we will be interacting with and developing relationships.
We are looking for ministry partners to join us. Financially we need to raise approximately $27,000 for all the students and leaders to go including airfare and room and board while in Guatemala. We are praying for people to join us financially. Every donations such as $5, $20, $50, $100 helps to send a kid to go and serve. By your donation, you are coming along side these teenagers and saying you believe that God is going to do something wonderful through them and you will be a part of every life that is provided for, changed, and transformed.
If you are financially unable to give, we are looking for prayer partners as well. Prayer is very crucial on missions trips. This team is taking a huge step of faith and we are praying that the team will see God do something that will not only change a Guatemalan's life, but also our lives. If you are committing to pray for the team as they go, please send me a message so we can keep you posted with specific prayer requests, answers to prayers, and know how we can be praying for you as well!
