On Our Way to El Salvador!

Because of Third's generosity, the team will be bringing supplies to El Salvador that will result in thanksgiving to God.

Our 11 teammates will be bringing at least an additional 650 pounds of donations to El Salvador.  We packed those extra 16 checked bags and made all the arrangements to make sure we were out the door by 4:30 am this morning to clear RVA customs in order to make our 7:15 am flight.

The team is excited, prepared, and slightly anxious about it all but we are confident that God has called us and has opened the door for us.

For 6 of us, this will be our first missions trip!

Thanks for your prayers!

"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God."
