It’s been about a week and a half since I posted and I hope that you all had a Merry Christmas! I will post some pictures about our Christmas celebrations but first I wanted to share with you some ministry we did at San Martin. San Martin is a home for mentally and physically handicapped kids and adults. Many of them are severely handicapped. A lot of the residents at San Martin have been abandoned by their families. They don’t get many visitors, and many ministry teams that come to El Salvador don’t stop by San Martin. On Christmas Eve, our family was able to help fund a Christmas party for the residents there. We used funds that have been donated by our supporters – by many of you! We purchased candy, pinatas, and gifts for each of the 120 individuals that live at San Martin. Thank you so much for your generous giving to our ministry…this party was funded by you and we are so grateful for your willingness to give to these people. They may never know who you are, but you have touched their lives.
Unfortunately, I was unable to go because I was feeling sick that morning, but Jon,Tori,and Ian went. Tori and Ian were a great help and it was a great party! We are so glad that our kids got to spend the day before Christmas focusing on and serving others!
