"...great joy which will be to all people."

Luke 2:10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people."

Hello friends and family,

Over ten years ago, Pathways Church, now known as Mission City Church, in Largo, Florida, planted a church, Iglesia del Camino, in Antigua, Guatemala.   The building ministry we work with, Mil Casas Project, is a branch of Iglesia del Camino and we are excited to announce, after ten years, it is now it's very own non-profit in Guatemala, called Centro de Suenos!  It's taken a decade in the making but this is a huge step, allowing more Guatemalan job opportunities and Guatemalan ownership.

With this change, we need our funding to be filtered through Centro de Suenos, which requires a change for you.
Two step process:

1.  Please contact Chris Polson at 727-397-4707 x119 or chris.polson@missioncitychurch.com and ask her to cancel your monthly commitment to the Townsend Family.  She is expecting your phone call or email.  Please make sure you ask her for a confirmation of cancellation.  

2.  Please go to:  http://my.simplegive.com/dl/?uid=the944202   After you have created an account, you will be directed to the "My Donation" page.  On the left side, you will need to click on "Scheduled Giving" to create a monthly commitment, and you will find "SUPPORT - JACK TOWNSEND" if you scroll under "Choose a Fund."  After you have successfully signed up, please send us a copy of the verification and we will confirm your donation with Centro de Suenos.

If you would prefer to send a check in the mail, please send to:  
The Guatemalan Dream Center
944 Alcazar Way S, St. Petersburg, FL 33705

Payable to: The Guatemalan Dream Center, Inc.  Memo: Townsend Family
