Here’s how I’ve spent the majority of my past two weekends: Standing behind a table.
Why you ask? Well, I’m glad you did.
I’ve spent the past two weekends at Youth Conventions in Ohio and Kentucky. The purpose for my being there was to serve as the face of Catalyst Resources International.
If you know me at all, and likely you do if you’re reading this, then you know that I have a significant history with this organization and the work they do in Guatemala. And it is great work. We build homes and churches. We provide clean water to villages. We comfort the afflicted, and clothe the unclothed. We rescue beautiful girls from tragic situations, and bring them into the comfort of Mimi’s House. We provide a safe environment for them that includes: healthcare, education, nutrition, and emotional nurturing.
What you may not know is how all of that great work gets accomplished. It requires partners. You see, there is no magical money tree that funds the work of the Greene family in Guatemala. These wonderful people who serve as missionaries there have literally sold everything (multiple times) in order that they might see this great work through and the vision of CRI fulfilled. The Greene’s have given everything, and in turn they need people like you and me to give something.
The past two weekends I’ve stood behind a table for hours, and stood on 4 different stages in front of 1,300+ people to share the vision of Catalyst Resources International. My hope in doing this was to spread the word about what we were accomplishing in Guatemala, and to ask people to join us in this effort.
I figured; what’s one more pitch. This blog is now my digital stage. I stand behind this table, full of information and brochures, faces of precious girls, and videos displaying the work in progress. I stand behind this table and ask you to join us. Partner with us.
- Sponsor a girl for $30 per month.
- Give a year end gift to the Greene family.
- Help us pay off the mortgage on Mimi’s House by purchasing a tile for $1,000.
- Take a trip to Guatemala to see thing firsthand.
Do it now. Read the website, explore the links, ask me how you can become involved. I, like Paul in Acts 20 have been compelled to action. I pray that you may be as well.
I’ll take your Facebook “Like” or Comment as your intention to partner with CRI.
Thanks for reading.
