Gladys Acuña Güitz
In 2011, when God allowed me to celebrate 25 years of service to the poor through Potter’s House (PHA), I asked of Him, “What are your plans for my life? What is your calling for me for the coming years?” And God gave me His Word in Psalm 71:18: “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.”
The disciples of Christ must leave to future generations a solemn testimony of the work of God. I desire that He be glorified and the next generation inspired and encouraged to continue believing in God and His power for the extension of His kingdom in this world, “…may His will be done in the heavens, as well as on earth.”
This is my desire, to leave a Christian legacy in PHA for coming next generations. I want to inspire them to seek God, to hear Him, to trust in Him and to give Him glory.
I want to be a good steward of all that the Lord has allowed me to witness for 35 years.
Finding God in Unexpected Places
No matter where or how you live, life in the 21st Century is stranger and more unpredictable than it has ever been. Regardless of what you believe about the state of the world, this is the perfect time to ask yourself, “What matters most in my life?” “What should be my role today?”
Hidden Treasure: Finding God in Unexpected Places will take you on a journey that will help you answer those critical questions and many others, the answers to which will impact your life now and for eternity. Hidden Treasure tells God’s story through the life of Gladys Acuña Güitz, who experienced His heart for the poor and discover her calling in a garbage dump among the scavengers that she would come to love as Treasures. Gladys opens her heart to share her struggles and misconceptions along with those of others, as she strives for a closer relationship with God. You will be inspired by lessons of faith, adversity, and God’s timely provision.
Whether you are mature in your faith, a brand-new Christ-follower, or a seeker looking for answers, God will speak to you as Gladys tells God’s story, taking you along as she journeys from a dull religious life through challenges and uncertainty to a vibrant, exciting Christian life. If you are serving in ministry at any level, Hidden Treasure will make you realize that you are not alone as you learn from a seasoned ministry leader who earned her stripes the hard way.
Expect the unexpected! God may urge you, as he did with Jeremiah, “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” (Jeremiah 18:1-2) Your potter’s house will probably be different from Gladys’s, but once you go, you will never be the same.
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”
– Psalm 92:12-15 (NIV)
