Leap of Faith

What a busy month we have had with fundraisers!  If you look at our thermometers, you will see the one time donations have jumped considerably!  Thank you, friends for joining us on this journey, for stepping out in faith and making a donation.  We are blessed.

We are currently in need of monthly pledges.  We have had friends and family start making their pledge commitments and we are so grateful for the $850 monthly (x 2 years or more) pledges!

Would you consider donating $25 a month?  $50 a month?  More?   Any monthly pledge adds up and is appreciated.

The monthly pledges will be used for our living expenses while we are in Guatemala.  This will sustain a family of 8 for two years.

If you are interested in being a part of our journey, please contact us at townsendguat@gmail.com.  We have had some amazing friends offer to host fundraisers for us, which is another awesome way to help out.  There are lots of creative ways to help.

This is not just OUR journey.  We want you to join us so please check out our blog often and we will be sure to update our journey frequently while we are in Guatemala!

Thank you for showing your faithfulness,
Jack and Susie

Matching Grant Auction


We have a very special family that has offered a $2,000 matching grant.  This family enjoyed the first Facebook Online Auction for Guatemala and suggested we do another one to raise $2,000 which would possibly raise $4,000 for our journey to Guatemala.



How can you help?

1. Donate an item and when the auction ends, ship or deliver it to the winner.

2. Spread the word. Post this event on your wall, invite friends, encourage people to participate.

3. BID!

Online auctions are hugely successful but a warning - you will receive many updates daily. If this is a concern, please change your settings. Thank you for your understanding.

The auction will end on May 18. Payments due by June 1 for those who get paid the first of the month. ;)

Please submit payment to PayPal address: townsend164@bellsouth.net

Thank you and happy bidding!
