“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
Since we have been here in Guatemala we have seen constant examples of Matthew 5:13-16 being lived out. We have been witness to our ministry partner, Hope for Guatemala, producing salt in a place that needs preservation, and light in a city full of darkness.
Every year, the ministry sees graduation rates exceeding that of the national average. It sees hundreds of children getting nutrition they wouldn’t otherwise have access to, and it sees many families who have been in the pits of abuse and poverty break those cycles and branch out into bigger and better things. One example is a girl who started at the ministry when she was 11 years old and is now a teacher. Not only does she work full time here, she also goes to school full time, and she leads her OWN ministry that specifically serves teenagers and young adults in Zone 18.
The salt and the light that we are seeing each and every day is the inspiration behind our newest fundraiser, a t-shirt sale! Click HERE to order!
All profits from this t-shirt sale will go towards our ongoing fundraising efforts. Please consider making a purchase between now and December 30th to help us on our journey.
Throughout the sale we’ll be offering some incentives! For each shirt purchased, we will enter your name into a drawing. Every Friday we will draw a name to win special prizes. If your name isn’t drawn, we will leave it in the pool for another chance to win! All you have to do is:
- Make a purchase.
- Send us an e-mail (wilcoxH4G@gmail.com) or make a comment on our Facebook posts to let us know how many you bought. We are not able to see who makes a purchase when the shirts sell.
- Tune into our Facebooks every Friday afternoon to see who wins!
Thanks for your support! We love you all!
