I could not have been more pleased and impressed with the way the trip was organized and how it turned out. I immediately felt extremely welcome and felt very well taken care of throughout the trip. Everything we did was so interesting and super impactful. I truly had the best experience and will never forget this week.

I could not have been more impressed with how warm and welcoming everyone we came into contact with was in El Salvador. Everything about the trip was impactful. It will be an experience that I will never forget. I hope to share a similar experience with each of my children individually.

I really appreciated the way your community took care of us. The peope we met were friendly and caring. Your country is beautiful! Unfortunately, the dental needs are serious and I was happy to pitch in to help. The CDC is a terrific program for your community and I will continue to support it.

There is something extremely powerful about giving back to others and showing them love. Something that can lift any person to another side--a side that can uncover the true purpose of life.

One of the hightlights in my trip was spending time with the kids. They were all so sweet and loved spending time with us, which really made us smile.

I had a great first mission trip. It was life-changing to see how different people live their lives. I had so much fun making kids happy and helping people.

The overall impression for me was the humility of the Salvadoran people. The trip has inspired me to continue to keep doing more for all humanity wherever I can. Thank you.

I liked being with the kids and showing them how to make bracelets and the yarn wheels. I liked tying the bracelets on the kids' wrists and seeing them smile. My favorite part of the trip was painting the beds and delivering them to the families.

I truly enjoyed hanging out with the kids at the CDC. It was great to see all of their smiling faces every day. What touched my heart the most was a child asking me to do some math with him because he knew I was a teacher. Everyone at the CDC is so sweet! I'd love to come back.

The children that we worked with were engaged and appreciative of what we were doing. I was able to connect with them even though I couldn't speak Spanish.

Working in a clinic in a foreign country is always hard. The language barrier and the culture are so different. But, my favorite part was the appreciation of all the people. We may feel our work is insignificant sometimes but for them it means the world!

I loved seeing kids smile after I worked on their teeth. I also loved working in the clinic. I liked making the beds and delivering one to a child. The house visit was really interesting to go on and I am so happy I got to make kids smile and help them.

Ashley Morabito

One of my favorite parts of the trip was going on the home visit. I felt so welcomed and enjoyed hearing about their life. It broke my heart when she said she felt like a prisoner because it wasn't safe to leave the house. I was overwhelmed. She had also lost two brothers to gang violence. Despite all of this she still had hope and knew God was with her.

I could see that there is much needed to do to help the poorest in El Salvador. Even so, the people we met had a beautiful spirit. It was a privilege to help such wonderful people, but felt our contribution was so small. I am grateful for the Center that is able to help these people day in and day out.

Building and them delivering a bed to Manuel was my favorite part of the trip. He was overjoyed to receive it and I think also very appreciative and proud. The home visit provided another perspective on Salvadoran life near the Center.

Throughout the trip I was recognizing the huge community and family within our team. I felt very comfortable with our team and all the locals. I have felt very fortunate to have had an experience like this.

I loved meeting some of the neighbors next to the CDC. The local people here were so kind. Seeing how happy the parents and children are, I want to bring that happiness to those who need it. This was a humbling experience and a reminder that things don't bring happiness to our lives, people do.

I feel very blessed by this opportunity. I met beautiful people and working with the children was an inspiration. Seing young people involved in this project is an inspiration. My Lord God please bless everyone. Thank you.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to seve my fellow man as Christ would! Our trip to the Volcano was divinely organized with much talent. I am so blessed to be a small part of God's work. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

It was and is what we are on earth to do. God gave us skills so that they can be used to help others. It is our responsibility to give and GCLA is an amazing organization that offers us the perfect platform to share our God given gifts. Simply amazing organization!

This is my third mission trip and my first to El Salvador. The trip exceeded my expectations in every way imaginable. The people were so welcoming and gracious. I am a nurse and I helped with the dental clinic. I will definitely be back to see God at work in this beautiful community. Victor, Silvia, Ali and Chepe were great hosts.

My overall impression is that the community we served was well chosen and in significant need. The highlight were the smiles of the patients and the joy of the children. It was clear that the people we served had little dental care. That we could take away pain and truly bring smiles to faces was the greatest joy of this mission. I feel very honored to be able to serve this week.

Everyone coming together as one to work on the teeth of the patients was my favorite part. We were all on the ball, stepping up to the plate to do the Lord's work.
