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 and spiritual to about 250 people that day.
The Team will aslo be doing a couple of construction projects for Exodo orphanage. THANK YOU to everyone who adopted a child at the orphanage. Each one will now receive a new set of clothes and new tennis shoes. What a blessing. We are also going to provide them with their first ever hot-dog roast. That will be exciting for all of us!!!!! I understand that several people had asked about adopting a child on a monthly basis. If you would like more information about this wonderful opportunity, please visit http://www.placesofhope.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=80 Here you will find a profile of each child in the orphanage and how to make your tax-deductible donation.
I want to also say Thank You to everyone who helped make our coffee sales at TRWC a success!!! Those funds will be put to immediate use at the Crisis Center and in the kids breakfast. We are constantly buying medicines for the ladies, and of course, feeding anyone who needs it. So thank you all for being such a wonderful part of what Abigail is doing here in El Salvador.
We have many opportunities here to be His hands extended. So
