We were all smiles on Easter Sunday!
Easter is one of Casa Angelina’s favorite times of the year as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus, our Savior! We love Him and we love rejoicing in all He has done for us. He is worthy!
We began Easter morning with a beautiful church service and a powerful drama put on by the older children who have stepped up into leadership roles. They are incredible! There was an egg hunt for all the kids, tons of hilarious activities and games, and we ended with a big dinner together where we all truly felt like family. The newest children who have only been at Casa Angelina for a few weeks were soaking up the excitement and the love of God. It is beautiful seeing the joy of Jesus written over our children’s faces. His resurrection power is transforming them day by day. Praise God!
Our “capacitantes”, or leaders in training, prepared a powerful drama for the Sunday service. Their help the entire weekend was priceless.
Casa Angelina always celebrates in style! The children couldn’t contain their excitement!
Casa Angelina’s Church
Our anticipation continues to build with each new phase completed on our church!
For years we have dreamed of building a church and distribution center in Guatemala on our orphanage property. This year that dream is becoming a reality! Construction on Casa Angelina’s new church is well underway. Each building phase is completed as the finances come in, and we are currently raising $60,000 for the next phase. We can only begin to imagine how extensively God will use us to reach the local villages and beyond. This church will be used to distribute food, clothing, and blankets, host community events, and hold weekend services for the public. We foresee our very own Casa Angelina children pouring into their country, sharing their testimonies, and giving back to the needy. Please lift up this project–its divine purpose and its completion–in prayer. We believe it will have an incredible impact on thousands of lives across Guatemala!
Many donors, construction crews, and volunteer workers are making this project possible.
Needs at the Orphanage
This month, we have a large number of maintenance and medical needs. Any additional donations we receive this month will go toward those expenses as well as the needs of the new children received in the last couple of weeks. Thank you for your continual support. It enables us to keep rescuing orphans and widows! You are a huge blessing to all the children and staff of Casa Angelina!
