Our first July El Salvador team gathering with Susan Ackermann

This week our July team gathered for lunch with Susan Ackermann, one of the missionaries that we partner with in El Salvador.

Susan and her husband Kurt founded HIS CHILDREN after serving for many years in the government orphanages in El Salvador.  It has been a privilege to serve alongside the Ackermanns and we look forward to working together this summer.  Susan has been batting cancer this past year and has been receiving chemo treatments in Kentucky while her family continues to serve in El Salvador.  Last month we raised enough funds to fly Susan to Southern California and are treating her to a week of R&R!  It has been so wonderful to spend time with Susan this week and to bless her with rest, food, fellowship and prayer!

El Salvador team member receives national college award.

Last month former El Salvador team member, Amanda Deal, received a highly prestigious collegiate award for her service in El Salvador.  Amanda has participated on two of our short-term trips and played a crucial role in planning the quinceanera last summer.  She will be serving with our team again this July.  We are so proud of Amanda's accomplishments and passion for El Salvador!  Congrats Amanda and enjoy your trip to New Orleans!
