Samanta Golcher trains volunteers from ‘La Roca’ church for their upcoming Vacation Bible School

Thank you for your prayers over the last two months as 18ten’s Board of Directors prayerfully considered all potential projects with Comunidad Cristiana La Roca (The Rock Christian Community), a local church in Xela, Guatemala. We are thrilled to announce 18ten’s official partnership with La Roca on their upcoming Vacation Bible School as well as their 2020 Sunday School curriculum. We trust the Lord will use both of these ministries in meaningful ways even beyond our imagination, and hope this marks the beginning of a very long corroboration in the Xela community.

We believe the high-quality curriculums and supplies, all chosen by Pastor Karel Golcher and his wife, Samanta, will greatly enhance the VBS and Sunday School experiences for the children in their community. La Roca has offered VBS for the past 5 years, but due to their limited budget, they usually use curriculum printed from the internet in black and white. This year, as a result of our partnership, as many as 75 children ages 4 – 14 will get to learn about Jesus’ love for them in a fun environment, enjoy lunch at the church, and take home their very own original study materials–all in color!

We see this engagement in La Roca’s ministries as the beginning of what we hope will be a long-term partnership that empowers children’s ministries throughout Guatemala. Lord willing, we expect the graduates from thee Golcher’s Bible Institute, “Shepherding the Nations,” to be excellent candidates to be the future leaders of such ministries. Stay tuned for more information next week on this high-quality Bible Institute, and please join us in praying for La Roca’s upcoming VBS, which is to take place from November 12th – 16th!
