While in Guatemala I realized that no amount of money could give me such purpose and fulfillment than helping others.

Summer is approaching, and Forever Changed International would like to highlight the work of families who will be traveling to Dorie's Promise Guatemala this August. The month of August is a good time for families to travel to Dorie's Promise because there is a higher volume of available slots just before school begins. Two families, the Tarsas and the Wylies, have already taken advantage of this opportunity.

While June and July typically see a high number of mission trips to Dorie's Promise, August is actually a good month to visit Guatemala. Many of the same benefits that are available in early summer are still available in late summer, but the smaller number of travelers means that individuals get to take a greater amount of time enjoying them.

The people of Dorie's Promise Guatemala also face many of the same needs in August as they do in early summer. There are, however, fewer people to tend to those needs when August comes. Both the Wylies and the Tarsas have taken advantage of this opportunity to serve when the need is greatest.

Kaelyn Tarsa, who is traveling from Michigan with her father Stephen, has been to Dorie's Promise before. Her positive experience has left her eager to return.

"My experience with Dorie's Promise has been a week of clarity," she said. "While in Guatemala I realized that no amount of money could give me such purpose and fulfillment than helping others."

Kaelyn has raised an additional $675 dollars in order to provide food, water filters, and a bunk bed for children who are in need. She and her father Stephen will serve alongside another team, during which time they do work like pouring a cement floor.

The mother and daughter team of Nancy and Shannon Wylie will also be coming to serve at Dorie's Promise in August. They will travel from North Carolina, and they will have opportunities to serve such as ministering to homeless children, serving in the orphanage, and bringing food and aid to disadvantaged communities, such as Linda Vista.
