Project Report | Jan 29, 2018
Annual Thank You Letter

By Missy Christie de Acosta | President - Conviventia

Dear Friends,

The Bible tells us that the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve others and give His life as ransom for many. We had declared that 2017 would be a year of restoration, a year during that which had been lost would be recovered, and that is exactly what I saw take place!    Young girls living in dark circumstances, whose hope and joy were lost, advanced in pursuit of their dreams; others had fairytale weddings, rejoicing amongst the goodness of God in their lives. Parents filled with pride as they watched their children graduate from high school- a privilege that they themselves were denied. Families destroyed by violence and abuse reconciled. Young men lost in drug addiction and criminality recovered their sense of dignity, as they completed training at our trade schools; many having never attended school before.  People discovering the goodness of God amidst natural disasters, such as the mudslides in Mocoa, Putumayo. These are just a few of the ways in which we saw God bring restoration to precious lives!

I also witnessed faithful workers devoting their lives to the service of Christ in each of the communities where the Lord has placed us.  Their load was made lighter thanks to the volunteers and interns who have joined their hearts and hands with those of the team in Colombia.  By working together, they opened powerful channels of blessing and restoration.   Additionally, it was touching to see our staff and children praying and giving to help our friends and supporters after hurricane Harvey caused devastation in Texas.

None of this would have been possible without your friendship.  We are therefore very grateful for your partnership!  

As we look back on 2017, I’m also glad to report that last year our organization was evaluated in a variety of financial and transparency metrics, achieving an overall score of 4.7 out of 5.  We want you to know that we will diligently work to not only maintain but improve this ranking.  Your support is fundamental to advancing our mission, and we take your investment seriously.   Our many initiatives, including our schools, community development efforts, family strengthening program, humanitarian aid missions, leadership development, promotion of safer environments for children, and employment and entrepreneurship mediation and support are only possible because of the financial support of our loyal and generous donors.

THANK YOU for investing in Colombia!

 

Sincerely,

Missy Christie de Acosta
President
