THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIP AT CASA ANGELINA
God never ceases to amaze us with the blessing of partnering with you! We always say, “What YOU do matters!” and just three months into this year, we have seen that truth outworked. Many of you have recently partnered with us as water sponsors during this drought, and close to 150 of you have already visited Casa Angelina this year, sowing your time and energy. So much is accomplished when we stand together! Two brand new widows’ homes were constructed and furnished, and our long-awaited Casa Angelina Church is farther along than ever (update coming next month)! You are making a difference!
Every single thing we do, we do in partnership with others. Each time we rescue a new child, feed a widow, or build a new structure at the orphanage, YOU are right there beside us. Your continual prayers and faithful gifts enable us to live out our James 1:27 mandate. We are so grateful for your partnership and excited to see how God continues to extend our reach in Guatemala, the US, and Kenya. We believe that there is more to come! Thank you for every financial and prayerful seed you sow into What Matters and the lives we touch. You are a blessing!
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
James 1:27, NASB
We would love to invite you to join us for one of our week-long team trips to Casa Angelina in Guatemala! There is nothing like looking directly into the eyes of the orphans and the widows you support, loving on them in person, feeling the transformative presence of God surrounding their lives, and getting your hands dirty as you help further build Casa Angelina. One trip down and you will never be the same!

The February team had over 40 people from around the US. So much was accomplished during this team week including the initial construction of two widows’ homes!
We loved hosting this special, mid-March team from Texas and Tennessee! Our partners make a difference and mean the world to us.
The largest team of 2017 so far, the March team had over 80 members from 8 states! Besides helping with a number of projects at Casa Angelina, this team helped finish construction on the two new widows’ homes.
Guatemala has recently been in a drought that has greatly affected Casa Angelina. While our property has its own spring wells on site, as well as a rain catchment system in place, the lack of rainfall has drastically limited our water supplies. We currently have an added expense of $1700 per month just to bring water into Casa Angelina for our drinking supply and everyday needs. We are asking our partners to please pray for rain in Guatemala and at the orphanage. May God open up the heavens over us!
Monthly Support for Education
Last month, we mentioned the need to raise an additional $7,227/month for education costs. We are so excited to say that we’ve had hundreds of dollars of monthly support come in toward this need at Casa Angelina.
