We recently finished a short film telling the story of Kathy Rosales. She's a beautiful girl raised in the poor community near Guatemala City's garbage dump. She had little hope of escaping a life of poverty. But through an organization called Potter's House, that serves these "Treasures," she was rescued. An American family sponsored her years ago and we just found out today that she has been accepted into Harding College in Arkansas for the fall semester. Potter's House is an amazing organization.
Here's a letter from the Director of Potter's House, Hector Rivas.
With much joy and gratitude in our hearts we want to share with you great news! Our Treasure Kathy Rosales received the Walton Scholarship to study at Harding University in the USA. She will continue with us until August when she will have to leave to study in Arkansas. We are working hard to prepare her for this great blessing.
We are grateful beyond words. It is amazing to see how God really lift the needy from the garbage dump and sets them among princes.
“He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!” Psalm 113:6-8
Thank you so much dear friends, because throughout the years you have contributed to the transformation that is taking place in Kathy today. You have impacted her life, her family and many other Treasures. God bless you for being good stewards of God’s blessings and being His instrument to show the Treasures that He really care about them.
