Well, here we GROW again!  I continually stand amazed........here are some highlights:

Hope Center....60 children are registered and will begin attending the Hope Center in 2 weeks.  The water system is finally installed and running and we are now equipping the kitchen in order to feed them. The teachers and cooks are ready and so are we!!!!!!

Cabañas Kids Feeding Program....We are now blessed to be feeding 230 children every day (mon-fri) in 3 villages in Cabañas. For the majority of the children, this is their meal of the day.  One little boy told me he had eaten 3 mangos for breakfast and had brought 2 more for his lunch. So he was very happy to see a plate of hot food.  We are teaching them to pray and have little Bible lessons for them as well as the moms.  The communities are getting involved and one has even cleared a field to grow vegetables for the feeding programs.  We ARE changing lives!!!!

Fountain of New Life....We are literally continuing to expand in the church, both physically and spiritually.  We are extending our worship area and putting a roof over the garden area.  A BIG THANK YOU to Eastbridge Fellowship for making this possible.  We are doing some preliminary work now and the Eastbridge team comes in a few weeks to put on the roof and build 2 new bathrooms!!!!  And for spiritual expansion, we have had people making their eternal decisions even before the service ever starts!!!!!  After the roof is complete, we will need to purchase a used bus.....amazing what HE is doing!!!!

Medical Outreach....This weekend we are having a huge medical outreach, just for children in very poor neighborhoods.  All of our doctors are lined up and ready to serve.  We will have medicines and also areas

As we continue to work in all the areas the Lord has given us, He continues to open other doors for us to reach others.  We seem to get one thing up and running and blessing people and then He adds another.  And I love it!!!!  Never a dull moment in the Kingdom.  

He has given us yet another opportunity to touch lives in Cabanas.  Cabanas is a department in El Salvador and there are many little cities and villages within this department.  I have been to many of the little villages and can only enter and leave in a 4 x 4.  The people there are extremely poor and several of the villages do not even have a water well.  The children go to school half a day and the government provides them with uniforms but nothing else.  They usually only have one meal a day and it is not much, believe me!  So we are working in 2 villages to provide free lunches to the children.  We are feeding 150 children in one village and 50 in another.  We are working with the mothers in the community to teach them how to cook, grow a garden, etc.  If they help us cook, they can also eat.  If they give us a plot of their land to grow vegetables, and they work the garden, they then receive a portion of the vegetables and the rest go to the children's lunches.  This Cabanas Kids feeding program also allows us to keep track of the children as they have to check in to receive the food.  If they are not there for a few days, we can then send someone to check on them and their parents.  We have a wonderful group of volunteers helping us coordinate this program and

Abigail is GROWING again and taking over MORE territory!!!  Awesome and wonderful things are happening here in El Salvador.  God is opening doors that only HE could have opened and He it touching lives all over the country.  

Fountain of New Life church continues to grow and amaze me!!!  Our largest attendance so far has been 137.  Awesome!!!  We had our first baptism last month and have another one scheduled for this month.  We are seeing families restored, physical healings, doors opening to preach the Gospel.  Just amazing!!!  And today, we are starting a second service. So we will now have services on Tuesday night and Thursday night.  We really cannot have weekend srevices until we are able to purchase a bus.  I have not seen such hunger for the things of God in years!  Our church members are literally going out into the streets and bringing them in!!!  We have had street outreaches, teams going door to door, even going into other business in the area and receiving persmission to preach the Word during lunch time...only God can do those things!!!

Another area of our ministry where the Lord is really moving is in our Kids Connection breakfast.  We have really been asking the Lord to touch their little bodies...and HE is answering our prayers!!!  Every week, we have reports of cancer a few months ago, and now NO cancer!!!!  Tumors, completely removed..bodies totally cleansed of all cancer cells.  It is amazing to hear what HE is doing.  And the parents are so grateful to Him and tell their stories with tears rolling down their cheeks.  It encourages us to keep praying and it encourages the other parents to also pray for their kids.  My dream is that in a year, we no longer have the breakfast because

I just cannot keep up with what all the Lord is doing here in El Salvador.  If you read the last post, you know that a group of people from our Bible studies were interested in forming a church.  And Abigail supported the idea completely.  There was a co-pastor who works in the area whom we spoke with to see if he would be willing to come and give the Word on Thursday nights.  He was very interested in the idea.  (He is very founded in the Word and is from a great church here in El Sal.  So we knew the reputation and where he was coming from)  So we decided to have a meeting with him and a few of the people who seemed to be leaders from the Bible study group to see what we could set up.  I planned the meeting for 12 people.  Well, word got out about the meeting and we had 42 people show up.  I told the pastor that this was church, not a planning meeting.  He preached and 5 lives were changed for eternity!!!  The next week, we had over 50 show up, then over 60, then more than 80....our last service, we had over 100 people in attendance.  WOW!!!!!  We have heard testimonies of healings, both physical and within the family, more than 20 eternal decisions have been made.  In one service, we had two men who literally fell to their knees to change their lives.  We have a list of people to be baptized.  So we are moving forward with formally setting up this church.  We voted on the name Fountain of New Life.   And we are already out growing our space!!!!  What a wonderful problem!!!!  


This week, we will start to include Children's church.

AMAZING is the only word I have to describe what HE is doing in El Salvador.  When I wrote in February that Abigail was exploding, I had no idea just how true that would be!!!!  

I am excited to share some news that just has my heart and spirit bursting at the seams with gratitude to the Lord.  If you have followed us over the past few years, you will know that we have always had Bible studies at our Crisis Center.  We started with one, then added another, then another...some actually at the Crisis Center and some in other locations not too far away.   There has always been regular attendance for these studies and so we have continued to offer them.  We only provide free coffee and cookies at the studies.  But what we did not realize is the way

the people have been growing in the Lord and wanting to experience more of Him...more than they can just get in a 30-45 minute Bible study.    So the amazing thing that the Lord has done is has put a desire in the hearts of 50-60 people from our Bible studies to have a church.  Now you may not seem as excited about this as I am but for me, IT IS FRUIT!!!!  We have been pouring into them and they are growing, learning, and now wanting to serve and reach out to others.  

So a few weeks ago, some of the leaders of this group came to us, asking about starting a church...if Abigail Association would support this and help them.  We listened, asked questions, and then prayed.  As a result of prayer and many meetings, Abigail Association is going to have church at the Crisis Center!!!!  I am just about to dance!!!!  If
