Just before Christmas break, we had the opportunity to host a huge party in the streets for our community! Part of the goal of opening the Lighthouse Resource Center last year was truly becoming a resource for our community. Our end of the year Christmas celebration included lunch for 500 guests, gifts, music, and lots of encouragement for our clients and neighbors.
One of our local partners, Centro Cristiano Internacional, collected donations and provided volunteers to help make the event a success. Our staff and volunteers worked hard to organize details and to cook enough food for our party.
Our hope is that everyone in our community felt cared for, encouraged, and loved. That is the message that we are hoping to continue as we move into this next season of work in El Salvador!
