Apoyar (ah-poo-yar) is the Spanish word for to support, as in "I am going to apoyar the proposal." Support itself, as in the proposal has my support is apoyo (ah-poy-oh).
In this time of uncertainty in the world, with COVID, and heat and drought due to climate change, and political unrest, it is more important than ever that we support our Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala (ILAG) partners in Guatemala.
Our area's 14 partner congregations, along with five partners in other states, walk beside the ILAG and support it in a variety of ways:
Your attendance at and/or support of the Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala through the gala will apoyar education programs in our walk beside the ILAG. At our recent gala planning meeting, we learned about how our support of these programs have a ripple effect. As the Milagro girls learn sewing or cooking, they teach others. As scholarships support nursing or other programs, the recipients of the grants give back by using their skills in their community.
Truly, our apoyo does more than send money or support a specific project. It ripples across the country in positive waves of education—bringing hope and changing lives.
Gracias for your apoyo of our Guatemala friends by considering attending or supporting the Gala.To purchases tickets, click on the gala image below. Watch your email and the Guatemala Friends Facebook page for updates.
