Steph and I are blown away by all of your kindness! We are over 50% covered for our time in Guatemala this July! (News to you? Read about it here!) We still have just under $800 each to raise for our trip. We have no doubt that the Lord wants us to spend part of our summer serving Impacto in the villages around Lake Atitlan, so raising enough money isn’t a worry. However, the more we raise the more impact we can make!! Impacto has several full time positions that need our donations to keep their salary. Positions like managing Happy Tummies, a ministry that helps feed and tutor children in need!
One way we are trying to dual purpose some donations is through our friend Carolina and her hand made bracelets! (Pictured below with her daughter) For a donation of $10 or more (through PayPal) we order a custom bracelet from Carolina and bring it back for you! Get your name, nickname, favorite phrase, whatever! (nothing vulgar please..) Choose your favorite colors and any simple designs you would like to see and we will get it made up for you! Although I would trust Carolina with the designs, she is awesome! Average bracelets are about 6 inches of beads and about 3 inches of cord on either end. If you need one longer (like the dog collar Carolina is holding below :) let us know in your notes on name/design/colors. Contact Chris to get your bracelet ordered! Thanks again for your support!
The locals in Guatemala hand make them based on our text and color choices! Honestly I have no clue how to make them.. We will have to ask for a training session next time we are there! :)
