By Heather Radu –
As we come to the Christmas season, I want to give you a vision for where we are headed together concerning the care of our children at Dorie’s Promise in Guatemala.
Things have been slowly changing at our homes in Guatemala City for a few years now. You may have noticed. We are getting better at what we do!
Good change is happening among the children, our leadership team, and the special mothers.
I am excited to say we are starting to function like an organized family!
Of course, every family still sees all kinds of unexpected things, making organization and “easy living” virtually impossible. If you’ve ever been charged with the care of a couple of kids, you know exactly what I mean.
There are sicknesses that start and then spread to everyone in the family. There are unexpected birthday parties at the homes of friends. There are always tests at school the kids forget to tell you about. But even with all of that, I’m thrilled to see things improve at Dorie’s Promise.
I want to share some of that with you (stay tuned for our next blog post to learn more.) Rejoice with me and dream with me this season. God has a plan for our little ones!
We are going into a new phase of life. To adapt and do this, our team really needs your help.
As I write this, all I can think about is how grateful I am for you! Without your help, our children would be in terrible places. I can’t bear to even think about them being anywhere else. This is where God wants them right now. Thank you for being part of His plan for them.
This is why I know I can ask you to consider a special gift today.
December is a great time of the year to give. Since we are quickly approaching Christmas, please consider setting aside a special gift to help the Children of Dorie’s Promise. Before the end of the year, we really need to see $30,000 come in. And in order to raise that amount, it is going to take all of our friends — you, me, everyone we know — giving, and asking people we know to give.
Pray about doing something special to help us care for these precious children. I don’t know what you could give … that’s between you and God.
I just ask that you do something special. Help us reach this year-end goal! When you give, I know you will be blessed.
