Today we woke to the sounds of roosters and the slight smell of fire drifting in from the mountains. We had a delicious breakfast, that consisted of eggs, toast, beans, and fruit. We then traveled to the big tent church and we were able to experience a Salvadoran service. After church we were able to go to the artisan markets where we learned to use some bartering skills.
Today was a big preparation day. Once back on campus our team sorted through all of the wonderful donations that we will giving out during this week. Our juniors were able to prepare their service learning projects. They will give presentations about oral hygiene, sun protection, hand washing, lice, and nutrition in the schools tomorrow. We will also be going on house visits tomorrow in Mira Flores.
After dinner, we hiked up the hill to the storage warehouse to pack the food bags. We were able to raise enough money for 100 bags of food this year. Each bag feeds a person for about 1 month. We will be giving out 30 bags of food tomorrow while going on house visits.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support! We are so excited to get out tomorrow to share the Love of God will the people of El Salvador.
