One of the things I love about our job is that we constantly get to meet new people and do new things. For the last few weeks we have had the opportunity to meet lots of great people by teaming up with Possibilities International to host a short-term mission team in El Salvador. This organization is aimed at helping dreams come true for the hopeless. They brought a team from Ontario, Canada into El Salvador to build a home, feed the hungry, and serve in poor communities around El Salvador. We were so blessed by getting to spend time with them!
After their week of hard work, they did some “touristy” stuff and we got to tag along! A highlight was a trip to do the zip-lining canopy tour in Apaneca which is far outside of San Salvador. In the day to day work in the city it’s easy to forget all the wildlife and lush cloud forests that make El Salvador so beautiful. Our whole family did the canopy tour and the kids loved it! They have absolutely NO FEAR of heights! Tori has been zip-lining before and she was big enough to go alone this time, and Ian got to ride tandem with Jon. Needless to say, they had a blast zipping hundreds of feet in the air as you can see from the pictures below.
Thanks Possibilities International for your hard work and for reminding us how much fun El Salvador can be!
