It’s #GivingTuesday today, and usually we’d be asking you to give to our #NoHungryKids campaign. But this unusual year, you’ve already given so much as Impact Ministries pivoted to providing relief for the immediate needs of our communities: provisions for those evacuated by tropical storms, food baskets for families affected by pandemic lockdowns, all intensified by the underlying poverty so prevalent in this part of Guatemala.
So first, let us say THANK YOU. Thank you for all your donations, and thank you for all your prayers. You have allowed us to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Guatemala, and it has not gone unnoticed. Impact is characterized in the community as a ministry that comes alongside during the hard times - something we have been able to do again and again thanks to your generosity.
But today, too, we want to lift our eyes beyond the immediate needs, and look towards the future of these same communities. What will it take to build a brighter future for families that will last after the food is consumed and the houses are rebuilt?
Impact Ministries is founded on the principle that quality of life grows out of restored relationship with Jesus Christ. Providing a solid academic education based on the foundation of God’s Word will build a brighter future for the children in our communities. We’ve been offered matching funds of $65,000 towards school construction and educational programs. Your impact will be doubled as you help us accomplish this life-changing goal!
In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing stories of how donations to our Build a Brighter Future campaign will be leveraged. Please watch for these stories, and pray with us that we will be able to build a brighter future for our communities!
