Dear Friends and Family,

This fall members of a team of First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn members will be returning to Guatemala to work with Common Hope, a MN-based non-profit organization that has been providing education, health care, housing, and social work to impoverished families and children for over 25 years. Our church has sent over 10 teams to Guatemala since 2008 and helped many kids and families secure a better education and housing.

Along with my other team members, we will be staying at Common Hope’s facility in Antigua, visiting satellite facilities and programs, helping with construction projects, meeting with families of children we sponsor, and assisting teachers in the classroom.

Our team has set a fund-raising goal of $4,000 which is enough to provide new homes for several families.

Any contributions to this cause will be deeply appreciated.

Please, if able make a donation to support our team in our goal. You can donate via this page or contact FCCGE team leader Steve Jungling directly for other options or call 847-736-3042

We also encourage you to read more about Common Hope on the program’s wonderful website

Thank you for your consideration.  We will include you in our journey via our Facebook page once it is set up!

Thanks in advance!

Your FCCGE Guatemala 2016 Team and the families in Guatemala
