Merry Christmas from El Salvador.
This December has been one of our busiest ever...and we're not finished yet!!! We stated the month by hosting the Hand of Hope medical team. We challenged the team by taking them for three days to Cabañas. They were such a blessing to so many in need there. Almost all of our Senior Citizen group made it to the clinic one of those days and we were able to treat many others with medicines, dental needs, and even vitamins for everyone. And the Team survived the day without water, as the government did not give water that day, and the cold showers on the days with water. But most importantly, lives were touched with the love of Jesus and many eternal decisions were made!!!
The other two days, the Team was in San Salvador and we overall almost 1700 people received medical or dental care in this week. And more than 200 eternal decisions were made!!!
We also this month have been taking the love of Jesus in the form of Santa Claus to all of our children's feeding programs. It is always such a wonderful blessing to see the kids faces when Santa arrives. And of course, Santa explains that all gifts come from the Lord, including the best gift of all, Jesus. We give them apples, juices, candies, and cookies. So far this year, we have given out almost 400 Christmas gift bags...and we are not done!!!
We will celebrate Christmas this weekend with the kids and their families of the Hope Center. We will celebrate with more than 150 children and also celebrating 7 years of having the Hope Center. God has been so good!!
Both of the clinics continue to help people in so many ways and we have
