Fiesta 2020 Recap
Fiesta 2020 sure looked different this year, as most things have. We were not able to gather all together to celebrate this exciting time of year where we look back at what God has done. Even with all the differences, God's faithfulness to us has remained the same! Here are just a few things about Fiesta we thought you would like to know.
So far, we have raised over $24,000 (with our original goal being $30,000) and donations are still coming in! We switched from a "big party for all" format to what we called a "One Fiesta Many Homes" format. Friends of NLP, including individuals and churches, were able to host approximately 15 Fiestas across the Littleton area. In this time we have seen many new donors as well as an increase in those who commit to donate monthly. What this tells us is that people recognize the need our families have in this difficult time, and they are excited to be a part of meeting that need!
We received great feedback from our hosts about celebrating Fiesta in this particular format. It was disappointing to us as a staff and to our regular attendees that we did not get to have one big Fiesta, but many people enjoyed the smaller Fiesta setting! One host said, "We invited non-Christian neighbors and those that hadn't heard about NLP before so it was a great time to share about the program." Even with the success of this format, we hope to be able to get together for Fiesta next year. We have considered equipping people to host an at-home Fiesta alongside our usual program in the future. That way, they can continue to share the mission of NLP with their friends and neighbors in a more intimate setting.
Lastly, we want to say one more huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated this year! Whether you donated, hosted, encouraged staff, or signed up to volunteer, we are so thankful to each and every one of you for participating in Fiesta 2020. We would not get to share the love of Christ in Northeast Littleton to this extent without you. Bless you, faithful friends of North Littleton Promise.
