This past month, a St. Andrew’s all-generation team traveled to El Salvador to serve alongside our mission partner ENLACE. We joined forces with Pastor Marcos, a 16-year partner of ENLACE for a week of hard work, sweet ministry, and uncommon bonding in the community of San Jose El Naranjo.
As our team worked on a clean water system, visited the local elementary schools with a Bible story and craft, and went into homes to visit and pray with people; we were all very clear that God had been building up that community through the beautiful, relational, and empowering work ENLACE does.
We were able to learn from them, share with them, and strengthen our St. Andrew’s community throughout the 8 days together. As team member Amy Manser put it, “When I was able to set aside my compulsion to ‘get the work done’ and just sat down in the shade to talk with Cheryl [Thoreen] to enjoy her company, I realized that time was just as much for me as it was for those we went to serve.” God is good.
Do you feel called to serve? Join us next time on August 11-19, 2017.
