It’s definitely “back to school” season which means that the summer is wrapping up! We want to take a moment to thank the teams that have served with us this summer. We appreciate your willingness to come serve in a context far outside of your own.
There is much debate about the positives and negatives of short-term service in another country, which brings up many valid points. There is potential for both parties to be damaged in the process, but there is also potential for great partnerships and understanding to be forged.
We have been privileged to partner with some great organizations over the years that have provided a long-term investment into El Salvador. We welcome teams to our site that are interested in working to help strengthen and encourage our long-term work. We are grateful for our teams that come to learn and to serve, and we are blessed to be working together to build an environment that brings dignity and long-term solutions to our clients.
Thank you so much to our volunteers who have worked this summer to respect and serve the clients that are so dear to our hearts. We thank you for your help and your investment in our ministry!
