Merry Christmas to Everyone.

As the time of celebrating our Lord's birth nears, it is also a time to give thanks for the many blessings we have had this past year.  This has been an incredible year for Abigail Association here in El Salvador.  At the Crisis Center, we have been able to grow our services and the number of Bible studies each week.  We will soon be offering free dental exams in addition to our free medical exams, free medicines, and free counseling.  We were also able to give micro-loans to single mothers to help them start their own business and be self-supporting.


This year, we were also able to start a little Abigail Crisis Center in Cuidad Victoria, Cabanas.  This is a rural town with few services.  So the used clothing we take is a huge blessings to them.  We have also been able to supply them with goods for vocational classes.  Many of the ladies there cannot read or write.  So they are able to take classes to learn sewing or crocheting and then are able to sell what they make.  It blesses us and blesses them!  We plan to expand our services there as well in the coming year.

This year, Abigail began planning a project for 2012 in another area of Cabanas called Santa Marta.  This is also a very poor rural area where many do not have electric or water.  There are an estimated 7500+ people living in that area.  Our project will be to construct and maintain a multi-purpose building.  This building will be used as a church on Sunday and then, through the week, as a medical clinic and as a classroom for vocational classes.  We will be able to take medical teams, clothing, food and so much more there for the people who have

Hello, Everyone!!!

Some of you may be visiting our website for the very first time.  Thank You!!!!  For those of you who have come to see about a need that was put forth, let me give you more information.

There is a an area here called Cabanas,  It is a very poor part of the country and many of the people  who live there were placed there after the civil war in the early 90's.  Many are handicapped and cannot work but still try to survive.  Abigail has made a commitment to work more in this area, even to build a church/ medical/ teaching center in the spring of 2012. 


I recently was told of a family there...mom, dad, and 7 kids...who have nothing!!!  In fact I have photos as evidence that they have been cooking and eating rats to live!!!  This news was almost more than I could imagine!!!  I am currently taking monetary donations to get them food and clothing ASAP!!!  Afterwards, we can see what needs to be done to change their lives on a permanent basis.  We may need to provide some sort of vocational training to help provide an income.  Remember, there is no government asistance here!!!  So if we do not help them change their lives, they go back to eating rats.  I believe in teaching people how to fish...not just giving them a fish.  If you would like to help be part of the blessing to this family, please make your donation on line.  I give you my word that every dollar donated will go to reaching this family!!!! 

If you wish to read more about the work of Abigail here in El Sal, please read my previous entries.  I plan to update all the happenings of Abigail very soon.

Hello, Everyone and Happy 4th of July as well. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday and takes time to remember the reason we are blessed with this holiday.

There are so many wonderful things I would like to share with you. Please take a few minutes to look at some of the photos I have posted in the "Photo Albums" section of this website. That will help you to see better what is happening here. I would like to post photos from the breakfast for the HIV+ kids, but it is illegal to post them on the web. But trust me, they are ADORABLE kids!!!!


We have been able to feed approximately 1800 at the kids' breakfast since the first of the year. That is an incredible amount of beans and rice!!! Someone asked me about the menu. It usually consists of beans and rice, scrambled eggs, hot bread, cereal with milk, fresh apples, a cookie (to go) and juice or hot chocolate. Now that sounds good!!! And we are able to feed people for about $1.00 per person and that includes all the disposables!!! And of course, there is always a little gift bag for each child that contains cookies and candy. Not much, really, but the bag does make their little eyes light up!!!

I am so excited to share this next piece of good news with you! One of the many things I have wanted to do for a long time is to be able to offer women the chance to start a business of their own and make an honest living! Many of the women here have neither the training nor the opportunity to be self-sufficient. So after screening several ladies and much prayer, we were able to give our first micro-loan of $250!!!

Happy June to Everyone!

How time is flying this year. Association Abigail has been busier than ever before this year!!! I want to share with you just a few of the highlights from our Crisis Center, the HIV+ breakfast, and the area of Cabanas.

The Crisis Center continues to be a place of support for many women. The doctor is busy every week with patients and even ocassionally seeing men!!! We schedule them at the end of the day when all the ladies have left so there is no risk of contact. But what a blessing for us to even be reaching the men of the community!!!


Another blessing from the Center is that we are adding a third Bible study every week!!! It will not be held at the Crisis Center, but in an area near-by. It is another area where much help is needed and the people there heard about the studies we provide every week and asked if we could give a study in their area. The answer was a very quick and excited YES!!! So we are expanding outside the wall of the Center even more!!!

We are still waiting for the dentist to have his new chair out of Customs here in El Salvador so we can have his old one. But we already have a dentist who is ready to volunteer twice a month with free exams........what a blessing.

The breakfast for the HIV+ kids is always a blessing! We have set a new record for the number fed.....71 in one Monday morning. But He was faithful. Everyone was fed, but there was not a bean left in the pot!!! The children and mothers are so thankful to have this free meal, as for many, it is their only meal of the

Greetings from El Salvador!

Wonderful things continue to happen here and I am always excited to share them with you. If this is your first time visiting our website, please check out the other pages for more information about who we are and what we do. But please know that none of this happens without YOU!

We continue to expand and reach women through the Crisis Center. Our two weekly Bible studies are still extremely popular and well attended. We are expanding our counseling services and adding an extra day. We hope to be offering free dental exams in April. There is a dentist here who is donating to us his used equipment when his new equipment arrives, hopefully by the end of March. We will also soon be offering free cooking classes. We will be hosting in our garden area approximately 20 women for 4-week classes, meeting once a week. But a few of the tables need some repair work and that is scheduled for March 19. After that, we will be ready to go with the classes.


We are so blessed to be able to now give breakfast to over 150 people every week at the hospital. These breakfast are for children and their families who are HIV+ We had to halt the breakfast for about 3 weeks due to some political issues within the hospital. But those have now been resolved and Abigail is moving forward with a breakfast 3 days a week.

Abigail also has a Team coming the end of this month. They will be going to the area of the country called Cabanas and doing an outreach there. It is a very poor, very rural part of the country. It is almost like a different world. We will be providing both physical
