Our whirlwind tour through El Salvador is complete. On Wednesday we arrived in the capital city of San Salvador. We met with missionaries, national pastors and leaders of national run ministries. The purpose of this visit to El Salvador (like our visit to Guatemala) was to explore how Mission to the World could expand our ministry into areas where we currently have no fulltime missionaries.
One of the highlights of our time in San Salvador was meeting with Danielle, a missionary with Mission To El Salvador. She gave us great insight how her and her husband are partnering with nationals to work in areas of mercy ministry (ie. trafficking, substance abuse and kids). They have a wonderful ministry.
Another exciting meeting was with Pastor Tomás and Gladys who work with a ministry called Seeds Of New Creation. They work in church planting, theological education and many mercy ministries. They are a strong reformed organization that is looking to expand.
On Friday we left El Salvador and drove back to our home in La Ceiba, Honduras.
We would definitely consider our first exploratory trip to Guatemala and El Salvador a smashing success.
