2018 Gala: Guided by the Humble

 

Faith In Practice 2018 Gala: Guided by the Humble 

Thank you so much for being an important part of this year’s gala, “Guided by the Humble.” It was truly a gift to us to be able to honor Dr. Gene and Mrs. Kathy Huebner and Mr. Kenneth and Mrs. Donna Wine. Their humble witness and their longtime support of this mission continue to inspire and encourage us each day. 
 
   
 
We were also glad to be able to introduce you to some of our Guatemalan volunteers. Their humble witness calls us to greater service and deeper humility each year. Several of you have requested a link to the video of Gene and Kathy Huebner and the video of our Guatemalan volunteers. You will find them on the home page of our website: www.faithinpractice.org.
 
Our preliminary figures indicate that the event raised more than $820,000 with 600 in attendance. Your generosity is a testament to love that knows no bounds or boundaries. We are humbly grateful for this outpouring of love that will provide life-changing, life-giving medical care to the poor of Guatemala. We are grateful to gala chairs Ms. Mary Favre and Dr. Robert and Mrs. Elizabeth Morrow.  They, too, embody the theme of the gala. Their involvement with Faith In Practice, in their role as gala chairs, and in so many other ways, is a blessing to us all. 
 
  
 
This year through Faith In Practice, more than 1,300 U.S. volunteers will join more than 1,000 Guatemalan volunteers to serve more than 25,000 in great need of healthcare in Guatemala. We are deeply grateful for your willingness to join us in this mission. Because of your generosity at this event, we will be able to provide care to those in need. We will be able to provide a spiritually enriching experience to our volunteers. We will be able to honor God through the work of this mission.    
 
Should you like to get more involved, please let us know. We’d love to have you!
