The Young Women of Vision (YWOV) mother/daughter team has arrived in El Salvador. After enjoying a quick pizza dinner, we jumped right into ministry, preparing meals to deliver to the homeless community. The team headed out on the bus together and handed out almost 150 meals to men, women and children on the streets of El Salvador. Tragically, the children in the orphanages are kicked out on their eighteenth birthdays as the government is no longer responsible for their needs. Many of the kids end up living on the streets. Our ministry partners, Sus Hijos, has been delivering meals on the streets for many years. There are no government services for the homeless in El Salvador, no food pantries and no food stamps. It is always such a joy to be His hands and His feet as we provide meals in His name.
The team is already working hard organizing dresses, boys and shoes for the quinceanera, which will be held this Thursday, July 27. We will be visiting two girls' orphanages today to invite them to the party and let them choose their dresses and shoes. I can't wait! Please pray for us as we travel throughout the country over the next four days to meet the girls, share the Gospel and prepare them for the party!
