2016 TESTIMONIALS

Johan Carter

Words can't describe our trip. The bond we have as a team who got to work together is really cool. It was a life changing experience. I miss it so much, and I can't wait to go back!

Going on the trip got me out of my comfort zone and brought me closer to Christ. Not only was I able to be a missionary in El Salvador, but I am now also able to be a missionary back in my school as well. When someone asks, "Hey, where have you been for a week," it's a great opportunity to share the gospel with them.

To see what has been done in El Salvador in Soyapango and Guayabo in such a short time is amazing. One my favorite parts of the mission trip was getting the chance to visit some of the homes and sharing my testimony and tell them the reason we traveled so far to their country - to share God's love with them and how much that meant to us. So much work has been done but there still is so much more to do and many more hearts to reach for Christ. My heart will always be there and I look forward to coming back again.

I had such an amazing time with the kids at Soyapango and the Volcano. It really opened my eyes to see how much God is blessing the people of San Salvador.

Words cannot express the joy I got to experience in El Salvador. Seeing how much the teens were able to come out of their comfort zones and step up when it was needed made me so proud of them. Seeing a little old man Emilio who had nothing to give, give the one thing he could by washing my hands for me to get the paint off just took me aback. God really blessed me to be able to go and love on the kids who loved on us.

After my first trip to El Salvador in 2015, I knew I wanted to come back. A lot was familiar but the experience was all new. This trip allowed me to soak up even more of the beautiful sites, love for the people and witness the works of the Lord. It was also extra special because I got to share this experience with my mom. My heart once again was touch by everyone I have met and will be a part of my heart forever. I look forward my future 3rd trip back.

I have never felt so much like I was with family on a mission trip. The local team was passionate and focused on the specific needs of their community and I was so humbled and blessed to be part of "the family" for a week.

I feel at home when I’m in Central America. And leaving this trip, leaving the kids, just broke my heart. During journaling one night, I wrote, “The kids here need me more than the kids {I teach} back home.” God was pushing that mindset on my heart all week. So when I think about what my purpose on that trip was, I think that it was God clarifying to me that I’m not done in Central America.

The local team in El Salvador made us feel so welcome that it became very easy to connect and relate with their community as a whole. Their easy-going attitude and openness with their real lives made their home feel like ours for a week, and helped me to see my own home with new eyes.

I’m grateful to God for everything that He has done during this week in El Salvador. My eyes were opened even more this time at the power of God’s word.  Having the opportunity to share God’s word, love, and hope to people was incredible.  Thank you to the GCLA church and the staff for the hospitality.  It’s an honor to serve with you.

This was my third trip here, and I was once again amazed and awed to see God moving and at work. God is blessing all the IGC ministries here - the children's centers, the high school outreach, and the church itself. It is a privilege (and humbling) to come serve with such great servants, and it was fun to introduce a new group of missionaries to El Salvador. Thank you God for another great trip!

Spending my spring break in El Salvador was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was humbled by the friendliness, cheerfulness, work ethic, and loving nature of all of the people I met. The Holy Spirit was definitely present all week, as I witnessed my team bring multiple people to Christ and move further along in their faith. This trip was very rewarding and it allowed me to improve my walk with the Lord. I can't wait to come back!

I love seeing the power of the gospel transcend all language, cultural, and national barriers. It’s been my joy to team up with the San Salvador church in both service and ministry. Working together, I truly see God’s heart for the nations, and I’m challenged to stay on mission when I return home.

During my week in San Salvador, I was amazed to see God moving among the children at the CDI and among their parents. I am so grateful that God used me and my team to partner with the local church in San Sal; what they do on a regular basis is truly an example of the body of Christ at work to bring His Kingdom here. What I take away from this trip is the knowledge that God bonds people and builds friendships across different cultures and languages to serve Him and show His love.

Before coming to San Salvador I didn’t know what to expect. We all tend to have such specific images of something. I feel as if God was keeping my mind clear to new views of the world. As I encountered my first missions trip and plane ride, I can definitely say I’d do it again in a heartbeat! God has worked in me through so many precious lives. God is a miraculous worker and does many great things. God has fixed my eyes on so many more wonderful creations of His. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with and I now can’t wait to see the next trip God will send me on!

I really enjoyed my time at the two CDC’s.  I had previously been to the Volcano and seeing some of the same kids was a real treat.  It was also amazing to see the progress with the center development.  The playground and administrative building were impressive. Also, seeing the new CDC in Soyapango was great.  The kids there really seemed to appreciate the opportunity at the CDC.  They also welcomed us with open arms. We had an opportunity to spend time with some of the parents and it was amazing to hear their testimonies.

I look forward to coming back. I hope to make this an annual trip.
