This summer, I am planning to spend a week working in the Guatemala City garbage dump. This may not seem like much of a way to spend a week, but living around this dump is a community of people who use it as a means to survive. We are going to be working with and helping this community. I would love it if you could be praying for me, our team and the lives that will be impacted on our trip.
Beyond the Walls, the local organization that sponsors our trip, has been taking volunteers to the dump since 2005. In twelve years, their volunteers have seen tremendous change. More than 1,000 BTW volunteers have made a radical difference in the lives of the more than 700 adults and children for whom they have built and renovated concrete-block homes—no more flooding, filth, mud floors, or rats.
They also help provide health care, education, and hot lunches and have touched countless kids with love and affection though sports and craft camps, all of which we are doing again in addition to the incredible home construction projects.
Each team member must pay for his or her airfare and food, lodging, and transportation in Guatemala, and that’s where you come in. I am hoping that you will partner with me by supporting me financially.
Thank you for considering this opportunity. By helping me get to Guatemala, you will be impacting not only my life, but the lives of the desperately poor people whose situation I will be working hard to improve. I will be very grateful for whatever you can do to help. Even if you are not able to give financially, please keep us in your prayers in the months to come.
