Joy99, Grand Rapids, MI, partnered with Paradise Bound Ministries (PBM) for their annual LiftSit Event. The founder of PBM, Dan Smith, was lifted into the air, and would not come down until the goal was hit. The 2021 LiftSit event was the 10th annual fundraiser for the ministry.
In 12 short hours, a record $203,800 was raised! Proceeds of the event will be going towards the land purchase in Chimaltenango, Guatemala called Paradise Landing. This plantation, and the buildings on it, will be used to multiply the ministry that PBM offers to the people in Guatemala.
PBM was established in 1987 by Dan and Heidi Smith to do mission work in Guatemala. They have been providing for the physical and spiritual needs of the people in Guatemala ever since.
