While in El Salvador we built 6 new houses for 6 families; we gave each family a plastic tote full of clothing, toys, toiletries, and candy; we handed out rice and corn and oil to many hungry families; we gave glasses to people who needed help seeing. All that along with meeting new people, building relationships, and showing the love of Jesus Christ to the people of El Salvador.
When we set out a week ago I was unsure why. Why did we do this and why did I want to take part in it. 1John 3:17-18 says, "But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won't help him--how can God's love be within him ? Little children, let us stop just saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our actions.
I just thank God for letting me be a part of this and demonstrating His love to the people in San Felipe, El Salvador.
