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

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, football, and of course food. I will be cooking a turkey here and will have as many of the traditional trimmings as I can find.

Many of you received an email regarding our now being a 501-c3 in the States. That is a huge blessing to us and we are so happy to be able to offer a convenient way for you to be a part of the work here. I am so thankful for everything that has happened with Abigail this past year and all the lives we have been able to touch. I know we are making a difference!!!

 

I have been asked to give two different presentations at the US Embassy here in El Salvador. They will be on November 30 and Dec 1. This will be a great opportunity for us to share about our work here and to allow the Americans living here an opportunity to volunteer or to be a part in some way.

We are also planning an extra special breakfast for the children with Aids on Dec 20 at the Hospital Bloom. We will have extra gifts, cookies, music, and I am frantically hunting for a Santa suit. I want to make it an extra special day for them. Many of them will not have a tree or lights in their homes. Most of them do not even have electricity or running water! So this is going to be a great day!!! I will not be able to post photos since it is illegal to do that here with people who have Aids, but I can send a few in an email.

Everything with the Crisis Center is wonderful. Not a day goes by that the life of a

Hello From El Salvador!!!

I have a wonderful report to give from our Outreach Event that took place the 30th of Oct. WOW!!! We had over 800 women, children, and men in attendance!! Many lives were touched that day by the awesome teachings of Sally Hulsey, Vickey Davis, and Ricardo Hernendez. We had many receive the Lord, many connected with Abigial for the first time, and we were able to plug several into the Bible studies we have at Abigial every week. We were also able to plug several into a local church. What a blessing!!! There is a Christian church that is located just two blocks from Abigial. I met with the pastor before our event to see if we could use his facilities for the event. (Abigial just cannot handle 800 people effectively. I wanted to get the children activities off the street) He opened his church to us and blessed us to use it anytime we want!!! Praise the Lord for that. I am working on future events and teachings now that we have access to a larger facility.

 

In addition to feeding the people spiritually, we also were able to feed them physically. Everyone received a sandwich, chips, drink, and cookies, along with a gift bags containing personal items and candies. THANK YOU to EVERYONE who prayed for this event or who made a contribution. Your seed is in good soil and we reaped a harvest that day!!!

One specific prayer that we prayed was for the healing of a little girl, 10 years old, who has cancer in many parts of her body. Her name is Elizabeth. If you think to pray for her, I would appreciate it. The health care here is such that she has no other hope than the Lord.

Hello to Everyone!!!

I am back in El Salvador and have hit the ground running. It was so good to see many of you during my time in the States and I apologize to those of you whom I did not get to see. It was not because I did not want to, it was a matter of having too much planned for so little time. Next time I promise to get to the West side of Missouri!!!! But overall it was a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who fed me, gave me a bed and pillow, a vehicle, hugs, donations, love.....all good stuff that I so appreciate!

 

I was blessed to bring back with me 52 full Bibles, 22 New Testaments, (all is Spanish) 49 pairs of brand new baby shoes, new ladies socks, notebooks, pencils, jewelry...and I know I am forgetting things. But I was also given favor at the airport here in El Sal when I was called aside to have my luggage screened. The man saw all the Bibles, thanked me for the work I was doing here, and sent me on my way. No questions about anything else. I offered him a Bible, but he could not take it because of regulations. But THANK YOU to everyone who blessed me with so much stuff and the means to get it here!

I am so glad to report that now Abigial Association is a non-for-profit organization in the States. This is one of the things I was working hard to complete while I was there. Thank you to ALL the people who helped make this happen! What that does is allows us more ways to receive donations for support here in El Sal. There will soon be an opportunity to make a monetary

Hello to Everyone!!!

I cannot believe it is the end of July.  Where has the time gone?  I am sure everyone else is asking the same question.  When so much is happening, it is hard to keep up!!!

Here in El Sal, we are in the middle of the rainy season.  We have had so much rain, the mountains and rivers are full!!!  Fortunately, it usually only rains at night, so the days are good, but so many have lost homes and lives because of the rains.  Please continue to keep this country in your prayers. 

 

With Abigail, everything is working beautifully.  The Center continues to be a source of help to many.    The doctor sees patients every week and the counselor is helping people every week as well.   I am still trying to figure out about the dentist and in the meantime, we also are arranging for a pediatrician to come and see children. Our weekly Bible study always has between 30 and 40 in attendance.  I was able to purchase a little notebook and pencil for each one who attends.  They love them and bring them each week and are taking notes!!!  I love that!!!  They come with their prayer requests and are anticipating things in their lives from the Lord.  They are learning that prayer works!!! 

We still are making plans to start another study with another group every Thursday.  This will start 12 August.  They too will receive notebooks and pencils.  And each group receives coffee and sweet bread every week.  It is a blessing for us to be able to serve them in this small way.

Our paperwork for the Association has been rewritten and resubmitted to the government.  We are being told it should only take 2-3 months.  The gentleman who is
