A couple weeks ago, we had our annual Gala Night Dinner to raise money for Love Guatemala. We had a great turnout with some fun activities. There was a band that played live music to entertain all of the guests. They played wonderfully and even had a song dedication be one of the prizes in the raffle. The raffle had a lot of great prizes, including vases and other decorations, coffee pots, and baked goods from our cooking school.
Before dinner, Carlos told us a bit about the history of Love Guatemala and how it all came to be. Then, Pastor Ben gave a message to share the gospel with the students, the students’ families, and everyone who attended. The dinner was fantastic and served by students from our own cooking school. Everyone did a great job working together to serve all of the guests. After dinner, the cooking school sold cake as dessert.
There was also other items for sale as well. There were paintings of all different styles from the art school. There were also furniture and decorations brought by the carpentry school. It was fun to see all of the different things that the students brought to sell to everyone who attended.
It was a great evening and it was wonderful to see all of the students and staff working together to make the night possible. We are so grateful to be able to have a special night like that!
