We finally have an update on the Technology for Kids project! Just before I left for the States, Jon had the opportunity to visit the Marillac Girls’ Center for the opening of the second computer lab to help kids in El Salvador. This is a center that is home to girls who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused.
We have chosen to partner with local leaders, and the process has been a long one, but now the computer lab is up and running and the girls are using the computers to gain valuable job skills and have new doors opened for them. Thank you to all of you who donated to this project! Check out the pictures below:

The girls performed a drama about decisions they are faced with, and making the right decision by trusting Jesus.
