Last week the Lighthouse ministry made the news! It was exciting to see the ministry, and YWAM, get some coverage in La Prensa Grafica, a local paper in El Salvador. The newspaper has a regular section offering basic literacy lessons for people interested in learning to read. We have been using some of those lessons to help some of the young men involved in the Lighthouse. Jon contacted the paper to ask for a full set, and they responded by not only bringing the sets of lessons compiled by students doing community service hours, but also coming to do an interview and a story about the ministry.
The article highlighted the work that we are doing through the Lighthouse, and shared the story of Herber, one young man who has been learning to read since becoming involved in the ministry. The reporter also interviewed Jon, and Ericka, a fellow YWAM teammate. Thank you for your support and for helping us to serve San Salvador through this ministry in a practical way!
