For the past six years in February, Vickie and I have taken a group to El Salvador. The week is always packed full of ministry opportunities like sharing in schools and orphanages, working with churches – painting and cleaning their buildings, helping clean in local neighborhoods, feeding children in cafeterias, setting up in poor neighborhoods, sharing one on one with people and being involved in other community events. God has opened the door for a great relationship and welcome arms for us from this small impoverished country.
We have seen over 1.600 people receive Christ these past six years. We have ministered, encouraged, prayed, challenged, motivated and invested in the people of El Salvador. New Season Church has invested…each year, we deliver several bags of gifts given by NSC to the children in the orphanages there. I wish you could see the kids’ faces when they receive the candy, toothbrushes and supplies. Last year, we bought shoes for each child and our people got to put the shoes on the feet of the kids!
Our trip this year will be February 13-19. The cost will be $17.00. 00 which includes round-trip airfare, hotel and all meals.
This is an “easy” mission trip. When I say that, I mean that we are not dropped off in the jungle and fed on worms and zebra. We do stay busy and it is tiring, but so worth it! We stay in a decent hotel room where we can sleep and take a hot shower. Food is great and the people are amazing.
Have you ever been on a mission trip?
If not, this would be a great first trip for you. If you have, join us anyway! You will fall in love with the people and have the opportunity to be used to make an eternal difference!
