We have arrived in El Salvador after a challenging day of travel. Sadly, one of our team members, Jake, was unable to leave the country due to a passport issue. He handled the situation with tremendous faith and his parents were able to change his airline ticket. He'll be attending a conference with his youth group in Chicago and was able to use the El Salvador flight credit on American Airlines. God works in mysterious ways. It was a wonderful opportunity to recognize that "All things work together for good for those who have been called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28). Our team of twenty arrived at the mission house this evening and we were welcomed by happy, familiar faces and enjoyed a delicious pizza dinner. We are tired but looking forward to an amazing week of ministry.
Tomorrow we'll be serving in the local church, visiting a government run orphanage and serving the homeless. We are so grateful for the prayers and support of family and friends as we serve His children in El Salvador this week!
