This past week the local church board voted to do a fund raising project that would go towards the multiple needs of the ministry in Cojutepeque, El Salvador.

  • The pictures are of the new church that is only 5 years old.  We purchased the property, have provided funding for building the church little by little.  
  • They have a roof and last year after flooding we were able to raise funds for them to put a floor in and now this year walls will be put up.  
  • We have conducted three medical clinics out there, given shoes away, helped assist with Mother’s Day celebrations, Christmas baskets, and other outreach opportunities.
  • In addition to that we have painted in the community and brought in two 500 gallon water containers to help supplement their water since the nearest well is over a quarter mile away and they only let them get water from it a couple days a week.  
  • We are looking at the possibility of going back down at the end of December 2015 (after Christmas). 

Easter 2015

Philippians 1:6 (NLT) “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”   The funds raised will go towards finishing the church building, tables, chairs, painting the soccer fields, purchasing a used vehicle, whatever their needs are. 

The goal is to raise these funds during Lent.  There are 46 days during the season of LENT!  If 50 people/families will choose to get involved and give that’s $140.00 per person/family.  This breaks down to $3.05 a day (less than one fast food meal).   

Will you partner with us to make an eternal difference? There are two ways you can give:

  1. You could give above and beyond the regular tithes by giving $23.33 weekly for the 6 weeks of Lent beginning Sunday, February 22nd.
  2. You could give above and beyond the regular tithes by giving $140.00 on Easter Sunday, April 5thMORE INFO…
