Guatemala Missions Trip 2015

Dear Friends, Family and Acquaintances near and Far:
In 2011, My son, Aaron, and myself embarqued on an adventure that radically changed our lives forever. We went on our 1st missions trip to Guatemala to an orphanage called Casa Para Ninos Aleluya ( There we saw almost 500 children who had been abandoned and neglected for one reason or another. 

Immediately our hearts were broken with compassion as we ministered the unfailing love of Christ to these beautiful children. One of the last things we told several of the children we connected with was that we would see them again.

4-years later, that door has re-opened for us to return to the children at the Casa Para Ninos Aleluya Orphanage. Pending our funding, we plan to leave August 1-8, 2015. The total cost for Aaron and I to be able to return is $1,300 each ($2,600 total) and that covers Airfare, Food, Lodging and Transporation while in Guatemala. In addition to spending time ministering to the children through song, games and other outreach strategies, we will also be doing campus clean-up, painting and assisting with some much needed repairs.

We would be so honored if you would sow into this ministry opportunity so we can get back to the children in Guatemala and keep a promise we made 4 years ago. If you are unable to help us financially, would you please share our story and pray for us. One thing Aaron and I have learned is that nothing is impossible to them that believe! Thanks for reading our story and God bless you deeply!
