Dorie’s Promise is making history! Thanks to numerous mission teams that helped us throughout the summer, we are close to completing a new school in Palencia, about an hour from Guatemala City.

Thanks to volunteer labor from our missionaries, we will be able to build the school for just over $11,000. That is less money than the average school construction project.

The building contains three classrooms and three bathrooms, and will accommodate about 80 students in the elementary and middle school grades.

It has been a blessing to be part of this project and amazing to see how many people joined in the cause and helped put the pieces of the puzzle together, says Director Alejandra Diaz.

“At the beginning it was just a project—a dream from the community and us,” she says. “But now it is a reality. The children have a new school and a place to learn. I am sure they are already enjoying that!

Students excited about their new school.“We thank God for the opportunity that He gave us to bless more children. Thanks also to all the people who donate to Forever Changed so that we can change lives.”

“This is truly an historic occasion,” says founder Heather Radu. “At first, I was afraid it might end up as a nice idea that caught sidetracked by all the logistical challenges of building a school so far from Guatemala City. But I should have never doubted God’s ability to provide and work through the hands of His people.”

Eight teams participated in the project, each working a day or two per week during their summer mission trips.

Located in a poor community known as El Trapichito, in the past students had to go to another community to attend school. Prior to that, their classes met under a tree.

The students haven’t been able to move in yet because the bathrooms still have to be installed. However, completion is expected by the time the 2016 school year begins in January.

The schol buildingMissions Director Pablo Villagran says God has helped every step of the way. Many believed in this project, giving not just financially, but with their heart and efforts as well, to make this happen.

“I am so thankful for everyone who allowed God to use them to bless others,” Pablo says. “This is a big event.”

For those who wish to help, teams and donations are still needed to complete the three bathrooms, which each need a toilet. Add “school project” in the notes section when you make a donation. Or contact us to find out how you can help.

Without God’s grace and helped we wouldn’t have gotten this far, Pablo says: “We believed that God would provide for the forgotten children of Guatemala and He did. He gets the glory and the honor for this great accomplishment.”

Supporters already know about the awesome work going on at Dorie’s Promise. Now I am asking you kind folks to help me travel north so I can describe our ministry and let others know how they can play a role in this vital work.

10991352_10204766414392345_5100438684092583238_nThe next six months are a crucial time of planning for 2016 mission trips. Many churches, mission teams, and volunteer groups are considering where to invest their resources next year.

Since the number of visitor’s decreases during the fall and winter, it allows me the flexibility to devote time to raising financial support and spreading awareness of the orphanage. A trip to North America will help accomplish these goals.

I am interested in speaking at churches and schools and to mission groups who can benefit from learning more about Forever Changed International. In addition to a video presentation, I will share about how God uses the efforts of so many supporters in amazing ways.

The five areas that presently offer us the most support are Michigan, Canada, Illinois Washington and Texas. If you know of others there who would benefit from hearing a first-hand account of the Dorie’s Promise miracle, please let us know. If you can donate to travel costs, please click here. (Please add a note in the comments on the donation page that your donation is for “Pablo’s Trip.”)

Missions Trips for Youth

Youth groups visit Dorie's Promise.

By FCI Team –

Cinda Rachor and some mebers of her mission team.Cinda Rachor started bringing youth groups to Dorie’s Promise six years ago. Today, instead of just her church, her teams come from dozens of congregations around Flint, Michigan.

“As word of the trips spread, the ripple effect brought many teens to us,” says Cinda, whose family attends Central Nazarene Church. “They are eager to experience a Guatemala mission trip through Forever Changed International.

“Kids come home so changed, so passionate and so much more whole,” she says. “Their friends, siblings and classmates see this and ask, ‘How can I go?’”

All teens are “blown away” by the importance of spending quality time with others and helping people, says Missions Coordinator Naomi Beazley. While their service enhances the quality of life in Guatemala, it particularly makes a life-changing impact on the volunteers.

Missions trip make a life-changing impact on the volunteers“They are all humbled by how little everyone needs to be happy and the quality time playing and doing activities goes so far,” Naomi says. “It is always amazing and life-changing for young kids to be away from their families and depending on themselves and their leaders to get involved every day.”

Missions Director Pablo Villagran says anywhere from 15 to 30 participants is ideal for a youth team—the more participants, the more community projects we can accomplish.

Since he is fairly young, Pablo Villagran loves seeing youth groups visit. He can relate to them and loves watching God show mission trippers what’s next in their lives.

The children of Dorie's Promise love spending time with visiting teams.“To others it is their first time out of the country and it helps them to come out of the bubble they live in,” Pablo says. “The things they see and the experiences they have are unique. It’s a memorable trip.”

Cinda Rachor agrees with that observation. She and her husband, Jim, sometimes come twice a year. Their most recent visit was in late June, when they were the only adults on their 31-member team. All had been through monthly three-hour training sessions that started the previous September.

As leaders, Cinda says they learned that God is always best at overseeing their trips. Thing went best when they started with devotions and dedicated the day, the team, the kids and staff at Dorie’s Promise, and the communities they visited to Him.

“Our team was profoundly impacted by the kids at Dorie’s,” Cinda says. “They have a desire to connect with others and our teens fell in love with them. By the end of the week the kids knew they were loved, special and worthwhile.

“The team also came away with a renewed appreciation for their families, especially their parents. They saw so many kids and teens that are having to navigate life on their own. They realized that having parents and families invest in them is a gift they had taken for granted.”

If you would like your youth group to experience this kind of life-changing opportunity, let us know or watch this video to learn more.

A Pleasant Surprise

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015


Group photo at Dorie's Promise Guatemala.By FCI Team –

We recently received a pleasant surprise: a gift of approximately $1,800 in sponsorship money for four of our children, enough to sponsor each of the four for a year.

The gift came from Antelope Hills Christian Church in Canby, Minnesota, which raised the funds during this year’s Vacation Bible School.

 Jenni Maas and Friend from the Community at the City Dump.There’s a reason the church got involved: Pastor Steve Maas and his wife, Sharon, felt called to take a family mission trip to Dorie’s Promise in the summer of 2014.

“Our family bonded forever to the children and people of Guatemala in ways we could have never imagined,” Steve says. “We hope to go back to Dorie’s Promise in the summer of 2016 with a group from our church.”

Their 2014 trip also included their two youngest children, daughters Jenni and Emily. Because of the ties established last year, the pastor thought of a way to help our home. During this summer’s Vacation Bible School, Steve and Sharon handed out photographs of residents Fabiola, Lucia, Lester and Josue. The children took the pictures home to parents to generate donations for their support.

The gift from Antelope Hills included a donation from the memorial fund established for Steve’s father. A longtime church member, the elder Maas died just before VBS started.

There’s another reason Pastor Steve and Sharon feel so strongly about helping our kids. They adopted Jenni and Emily—who are biological sisters—from Guatemala in 1990 and 1995 through the Children’s Home Society, a U.S.-based adoption agency.*

“As we thought about going, we wondered what all would transpire,” Steve recalls of their planning for the girls’ first trip back to Guatemala. “The girls fell in love with their homeland in powerful and significant ways. Their hearts opened, swelled and broke time and time again.

“Tears filled their eyes, as well as ours, over and over at the incredible and touching big and small moments in each day.”

Jenni Maas with Lucia during her trip to GuatemalaIndeed, Emily is following up on her visit. She departed recently for Guatemala where she plans to stay for three months at a language school in Antigua to learn Spanish.

Forever Changed changed us,” Steve says. “People go on trips all the time and spend lots of money, but this is so much deeper and more meaningful than taking a vacation. We’re so excited we were able to sponsor these children through VBS and our church body. Our prayers are with everyone who make Dorie’s Promise the blessing that it is.”

New Siblings at Dorie’s Promise Enter Sponsorship Program

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Three new siblings recently arrived at Dorie’s Promise via court order.

Three new siblings recently arrived at Dorie’s Promise via court order. Yojana (8), the eldest, has been very communicative and expressive since the first day. The boys, Alex (5) and Elvis (Age 3), were scared and sad — they came to our home very dirty and in torn clothes.

They had lived on the streets; their parents stole whatever they could in order to give them food. Yojana said that they did not have money, so it was OK that her mother stole from other people. With the help and support of the psychologist at our home, Yojana now knows that stealing is not right — that if she wants something she can’t harm anyone to get it. Alex and Elvis are too small to understand what happened with their parents.Yohana, Alex and Elvis

Due to the life these parents have chosen, both of them are in jail, and for a long time now that their sentence was determined. The children at first were sent to live with their grandfather, who rents a room with one bed. He is an alcoholic and was abusive with the children. At one point they were left in a parking lot because he forgot them. The police rescued them and took them to minor’s court. That’s when the judge decided to send the children to Dorie’s Promise, while the biological parents finish out their sentence, possibly even longer.

When we take in children who were abandoned or abused by family, it’s so easy to see the lack of care they received. Physically speaking we see malnutrition, insecurity, dirt on their skin, and cavities in their teeth. Once the children have been able to stay in our home for some time, we also see the effects of the lack of education, the poor moral standards, and the disrespect for others.

It’s a sad story that many kids call their own — and at such a young age — but we know that we are making a difference in their lives. Day by day, we see children like Yojana, Alex, and Elvis getting better, their health improving, becoming more secure and independent, and learning morals and how to respect those around them.

Elvis is the youngest of the siblings.This process of change is something we feel delighted and privileged to be part of, and it’s through this ministry that we know we are making a big impact in their lives!

Their special mother says of the siblings:

“Yojana has changed a lot. She is a happy girl who always smiles, and she likes to spend time with the girls and play dolls. She is very kind and humble. Now, she takes care of her appearance, she tries to stay neat and clean. She also likes to help the special mothers. She loves to walk around the neighborhood and loves to eat chocolate.

“Alex and Elvis have also changed a lot. Now they seem to be happy and enjoy sharing with the other boys. They are healthier, they eat all kinds of food, and they say they do not want to leave Dorie’s Promise.”

Since they will be staying with us for a long time, we’ve added Yojana, Alex, and Elvis to our sponsorship program. Please click on one of their names above to learn more about them and become their sponsor.

Take A Missions Trip With Your Family

Friday, September 11th, 2015

By FCI Team –

Rachel Clyne, her husband and their four children visited Dorie’s Promise last March, and their life hasn’t been the same since.

The Clynes (who live in St. Paul, Minnesota) spent much of their time playing with our children. Rachel’s favorite memory: listening to her three sons laugh and make up silly jokes with Brayan. Even though barely able to speak each other’s languages, they became good friends.

Even though summer is ending, there is still time to plan a family mission trip for this fall—or next summer. “We often reflect on the way of life in Guatemala and the poverty we saw,” Rachel says. “We continue to work as a family to complete service projects and raise funds to visit again. Sometimes when we don’t feel like doing it, we remind each other of the precious kids at Dorie’s who are benefiting from the support.”

Anywhere from 10 to 15 family mission teams visit Dorie’s Promise each year. The teams can be as small as two—a parent and child—or more, including extended families.

Missions Coordinator Naomi Beazley says families can plan whatever they want, including several joining together to form a team. For example, an extended family of 13 plans to visit in December, with another family of seven joining them.

“Families always say their whole family has changed,” Naomi says. “They want to help others when they get home. It is an experience they will remember forever. I took my son (14) for the first time in June, and seeing him give his time unselfishly was amazing.”

Sponsorship Coordinator Charity Danielson also brought her son Stephen, age 17, in June. Though planning to take care of ministry matters, after watching him devote “150 percent” of his efforts to missions projects, Charity spent more time on volunteering than business.

Serving together encourages new bonds, new connections, new topics of discussion, spiritual growth and better communication.“It benefits families by getting them out of their day-to-day rut,” Charity says. “It encourages new bonds, new connections, new topics of discussion, spiritual growth and better communication.”

Canadians Amber and Bob Fraser have been here three times. Years ago they adopted their daughter, Megan (now 17), from another orphanage in Guatemala. The Frasers wanted to return to learn more about Megan’s culture and family as well as taking a missions trip.

Not only did they love the children, they loved seeing their growth and the positive environment afforded our kids—so much they now sponsor three kids at the home.

“The relationships have been long lasting and we will always fondly remember our experience with Dorie’s Promise,” Amber says. “What an awesome, loving place.”

No wonder Missions Director Pablo Villagran says: “We love having these teams visit because it’s amazing to see what God can do in a week in each member of the family.”

A Birthday Party to Remember!

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Ana with her firends at her birthday party.

On Sunday, July 19, Ana turned 9 and had a very special birthday celebration with her friends — one she will always remember. Her party included pizza, cupcakes, and colorful balloon crowns that her dad made for her and all the guests. But there was something missing — birthday gifts.

Instead of gifts for herself, Ana decided to ask her friends to consider making donations to Dorie’s Promise. Having read recent letters from Forever Changed International that described how funding was down and that donations were urgently needed, Ana and her mom began to consider how they could help. So invitations quickly went out that included information about Dorie’s Promise and its website, along with a note of encouragement that a gift of charity would be the best gift Ana could ask for.

Ana made her birthday party special by asking for donations to Dorie's Promise instead of gifts.Ana herself was once an orphan* and wanted to give back to help the children who live in the same place she did as an infant. She came home to be with her adoptive family in 2007 when she was eight months old. She enjoys looking at the photos of when she was a baby living in Casa 6 and recognizes the familiar setting when she looks at the Forever Changed International website to see photos of the child her family sponsors at Dorie’s Promise.

Ana’s birthday party was filled with fun and special memories with her closest friends, two of whom were also adopted from Guatemala. It was exciting to add up all the donations that came in and share the total at the party.

Ana prays that the money will be a blessing to the children of Dorie’s Promise and is happy to know that she is helping in some small way. As the saying goes, it is truly better to give than to receive!

Fall Mission Trips

Fall/Winter Trips: Book Now!

Fall and Winter are a great time to visit Guatemala

As summer draws to a close, so will the busiest time of year for mission trips to Guatemala. However, with many schools now scheduling fall breaks and more people working independently or with flexible time schedules, you may want to consider booking a trip to Dorie’s Promise during the next few months.

Throughout September and October (including Oct. 31 to Nov. 7), the normal $1,100 per person charge will be discounted to $900. Missions Coordinator Naomi Beazley says the discount helps sustain our program by encouraging visitors to come during a slower season.

Missions Director Pablo Villigran calls Guatemala the “country of the eternal spring,” with pretty weather throughout the year.

Our mission driector Pablo with Brayan at Dorie's Promise.“Fall and winter are the rainy season for us, but mornings are normally sunny,” Pablo says. “Plus, with global warming we’ve had drought conditions this year, which kept weather fairly sunny during the last rainy season.”

Sponsorship Coordinator Charity Danielson says a mission trip to Dorie’s Promise represents a life-changing experience. In addition, coming in the fall or winter will mean volunteers will be able to participate with smaller teams.

“Smaller teams make for more intimacy and group cohesiveness,” she says. “It also allows for more one-on-one time with our staff and children. Fall and winter months are generally much more comfortable too.”

Special projects are planned for upcoming months as well. Dorie’s Promise just finished building a school and Pablo is searching for another community in hopes of building one this fall.

The children of Dorie's Promise love spending time with missions teams.Until he finds a specific location, volunteers will be visiting a community in Palencia, about an hour from Guatemala City. The plan is to bring in donations and help repair the homes by installing new roofs, concrete floors, stoves with ventilation systems, and water filters.

Since this community is so far away and up in the hillsides of Guatemala, they rarely get teams coming in to help, Naomi says. Not only is it quite a commitment to go out so far, the dirt terrain makes for slow going.

“The team will be taking our new van,” she says, “but then will need to transfer to a city bus to get the rest of the way. I did this trip on my last visit to Guatemala. This is a very quiet community with beautiful land and humble people.

“They will be so blessed to have families and teams come this fall and winter if we can get more people to visit.”

Alejandra’s Forever Family

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Alejandra with her forever family.

By MJ Zelya-

Alejandra came to Dorie’s Promise by court order in March 2010, when she was only 25 days old. When we received her she was very tiny and suffering from several health problems — predominantly acute respiratory illnesses.

Little Alejandra in March of 2011.We were sad to know that she had been abandoned by her mother. What we didn’t realize at the time was that she also had an older brother who was sent to another home. He was adopted by a Guatemalan family when he was 2 (he is now 8).*

Alejandra received good care at our home, and after many treatments to control her health conditions she was getting sick less often. Dr. Castro has helped her come out of the crisis, and she began to grow stronger.

A couple of weeks ago, The CNA (Central Adoption Authority) informed us that they had a family for Alejandra, the same family that adopted her brother from the other home!

After all the paperwork was completed, they granted the family and Alejandra a period of time to get to know each other. They came every day to visit her at our home and spent time getting to know more about Alejandra. When the CNA was sure that Alejandra was ready to leave, Alejandra was finally reunited with her brother and went to live with her adoptive family on August 7, 2015.

She was so excited! She knew she was going home with her Forever Family. She took her backpack and the gifts she had received from school and said good-bye to the Special Mothers and the children at Dorie’s Promise.

As you know, our home is a place where children who come into our care and protection will never be the same. Whether they were with us for a short time or a long time, there is always a change — a change that will remain with them as they become adults. We know each child was rescued from their previous situation for a reason and that God has worked everything together according to His plan. That’s why we’re called Forever Changed!

Alejandra in June 2015; shortly before being adopted.When we know one of the children is leaving Dorie’s Promise, it fills us with sadness — but also with a sense of satisfaction. Such is the case with Alejandra. She’s been with us almost since the day she was born. We will miss her a lot, but we know that having a family is her heart’s desire.

Lucky, our home’s teacher, says of Alejandra, “She is a very smart girl. At first it was difficult for her to adapt to school. We needed to work hard on her motor skills and language. The hard work paid off, because we’ve heard great comments from her school. The teacher said that Alejandra was always willing to learn, help, and share with her classmates.

“Something that was very impressive for a girl of her age is that Alejandra always wanted to do homework. If she did not bring homework home, sometimes she cried because she wanted to do something. She enjoyed doing pages of letters, painting, and cutting.”

When we see our children so happy to learn, being responsible, and grateful to God, the purpose of this ministry shines through. It’s a challenge, a responsibility, and a big commitment. But I have always thought of it like we are helping God here on the earth to do His work, taking care of His flock. That’s why we joyfully receive the children who come here — because God has a purpose for their time with us!

We wish Alejandra a happy life full of love with her new family!

Memories Of Our Time At Dorie’s Promise

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Anita McCafferty with Sheily

By Anita McCafferty

My name is Anita, and I wanted to share with you some thoughts my husband Michael and I put together about our mission trip to Dorie’s Promise Guatemala.

Make tortillas in GuatemalaAs a child therapist, I wondered about the impact that the often fleeting relationships formed during short term mission trips would have on the children. But after experiencing the mission, it became clear that although our individual time spent was limited, the children were experiencing a continual, common message from all those missioners with whom they spent time. This message was that they are important, they are valued, they are special, they are loveable. As victims of neglect and abandonment, this becomes a corrective emotional experience which heals their wounded self-concept and self-esteem.

Although our time was only a brief instant in their lives, the significance and impact of our time there is made up of moments, moments that can last a lifetime for each child and each moment is a building block in their lives. For example, I can recall the triumph in the eyes of Lester when, with my husband’s help, he finally conquered his fears on the jungle gym, or Franco’s excitement at hearing his own whistle sound fill the air when Michael was teaching him how to whistle. These moments were building blocks for their self-confidence.

Our first moment in meeting the children was a memorable one. We entered the baby’s room to meet Valentino, Sheily, and Dulce. When Sheily heard Michael’s voice, she threw herself down in the crib with uncontrollable fits of crying. We were told that because of the past experiences in her young, vulnerable life, she was afraid of men, and Michael had to retreat out of sight. Our hearts opened up to her and we were able to witness the beginning seeds of trust in men by the fact that she lit up when she saw Michael and reached out to him to be held by the end of our mission.

We wondered what we could possibly contribute besides financial support to such a wonderful program which was sensitive to every need of the children: physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. We realized we could offer these healing moments of affirmation to each child we encountered with the crucial message that they are loved and lovable, valued and valuable.

Helping to feed the babies at Dorie's PromiseSpirituality and Christianity consistently colored the daily atmosphere of the orphanage, as well as our mission experience. It was impressive that no meal or snack went by without an expression of thankfulness to God. My image of little Alejandra at McDonald’s on our outing to see Christmas lights in the city with her hands held up in a thankful prayer to God before she took that first lick of her ice cream cone will always remain in my mind as an example of this. Moreover, our daily meditations lead by Pablo before our mission day began and after it was over attested to the team’s desire to assure that this time was spiritually meaningful and provided an opportunity for spiritual growth through prayer and reflection.

Since we were regretfully unsuccessful in convincing our fellow parishioners, our family, and our friends to join us, we attended this mission as a team of two. We expected that the energy expended toward us would not be as great since it was just the two of us. I can attest to the fact that all the efforts put forth by the staff was as accommodating and sensitive as if we were a group of twenty. Paolo put forth preparation each day in his daily meditations with increased insight into our spiritual needs as the week went on. Abel was fervent in his goal to keep us safe and was like a “grizzly bear mom protecting her cubs” when we were out in the community.

We were able to bring along some donations with us to be spent toward the mission and Paolo was vigilant in accounting for all he spent, itemizing each day where the money went (i.e. food for the profoundly poor outreach families, feeding centers, Christmas decorations for the children at the state orphanage, bunk beds and cement to made an extra room for a needy grandmother and her grandchildren, varnish to preserve the tables in a community center, as well as outings for the children of Dorie’s Promise). When we returned home, we were able to give those who generously gave a clear picture of how they contributed.

Very proud of his tigger puppet.Besides working to help the special mothers in daily chores and care of the children and participating in the outreach projects, we PLAYED lots of soccer, played with play-dough, enjoyed several craft projects, and many more fun activities. I noticed when we entered one community, the playground was empty. By the time we finished our service project, the word had gotten out that Paolo and Abel were in town and the children began to gather for a highly anticipated soccer match. What energy and joy the mission brought to the day of these children, as well as an affirming message of them being valuable!

The unity of the children at Dorie’s promise was impressive, many of them strangers who bonded as a family. The younger sat on the lap of the older and the older spontaneously nurtured the younger, all the while learning what a loving, nurturing relationship is. This other-centered nurturance was one that many may not have experienced in their family lives and were being taught in the orphanage by the special mothers and staff. We witnessed love, respect, and cooperation throughout our stay by staff and the children. Even the older teens like Brayan sat and made Winnie the Pooh hand puppets with the younger children with as much enthusiasm. They played soccer together with all ages, combining in a loving family atmosphere of mutuality.

Not all our craft projects were successful. The felt butterfly pins we made with the young girls at the state orphanage would not stick together because we brought the wrong glue. It was a disaster! Glue was everywhere and after the project, as we toured the facility, we saw butterfly antennae, wings, and spots all over the ground. We felt disappointed. Suddenly the girls passed us by with huge smiles on their face, proudly wearing their butterfly pins as if they were priceless pieces of jewelry. We realized that in that disaster of a project, they found beauty and we had reached them by just giving them our time and effort . . . those MOMENTS that build self-worth and affirm their value.

Michael making puppets with the children at Dorie's PromiseThe quality of care given at Dorie’s Promise was like being in an oasis in the desert. The children are well taken care of, and their program is individualized and sensitive to the unique needs of each child. The exposure to the community, wrought with poverty and violence, made us appreciate the blessing of this program for the children who are fortunate enough to be there.

It is a program of HOPE . . . for each of these children are given a chance to be in a caring environment that attends to their physical growth and safety; their intellectual development, promoting aspirations and dreams for their future; as well as providing a spiritual atmosphere pivoting around the love of God and gratitude for his blessings.

We look forward to the newsletters we receive and marvel at the growth of the children already since our mission there. We know they probably don’t remember us now, but we feel confident that the common message of worth given by all the missioners by carving out time for them will have a lasting effect on them and help them to continue to grow into God-loving, giving adults who will in turn open their loving hearts to others.
