What an amazing sunday we had!
The missionary team attended our church service, where we learned about the power of unity. The Soyapango church joined us in San Salvador and we had more than 200 people in attendance. Praise God!
In the afternoon, Jim and Cindy shared to our couples at a marriage seminar where they told us a little about their story as a couple and what the Bible instructs us do to in marriage.
Also, part of the team went to a local coffee shop to practice evangelism and inviting people to church.

We started our week off right at our CDC in Soyapango!
In the morning, the team hosted a Bible study for CDC parents, played with the children and worked on some crafts. The missionaries also got busy by painting some walls in the classroom and helping to prepare lunch (and learning to make pupusas) in the kitchen.

Tuesday, they started construction on the dream that for many children will become a reality!
Tuesday was our first day at the volcano CDC! In the morning, we started the construction of the new Recreational Center where we will have a soccer and basketball court.
Also, some of the missionaries spent time with the children during and at a local family’s home.
To end the afternoon, we moved (literally) tons of bricks to the construction site and were able to finish quickly thanks to great teamwork.

The rain didn't stop us from continuing the construction of the recreational center!
They also reinforced God promises with the kids and shared good news in a house visit. We're sad our last day is getting closer but we know God has been moving hearts with this team!

Friday we said goodbye to the children and people of the volcano. The team continued construction on the recreational center project, went on 3 house visits, and helped the children construct paper airplanes, which they loved!
We were greatly honored to dedicate the recreational center project in memory of Judi. She traveled to El Salvador on a missions trip years ago and always had a passion for children. We celebrated her life with a moment of silence and a prayer over the ground where the center will be built.
We are beyond grateful for the eternal impact CedarCreek had on at our CDC’s this week.

Thank you, CedarCreek for all your support and friendship.
*Gabby got baptized in our day off at the beach in La Libertad. Praise God!
"My highlight of my trip was getting baptized in seeing how people here live. It really opened my eyes to see how different it is from US. I enjoyed making the kids smile and laugh. El Salvador wasn't as scary as I was expecting it to be. I really enjoyed here and I don't want to go home, and I want to make it a goal to come back."
