Lent 2021: Hope for El Salvador

COVID-19 has impacted the entire world and affected all of us in a variety of ways. One of the hardest hit areas is Latin America, where they’ve seen the sharpest increase in extreme hunger compared to any other region in the world, with 30 million people having slipped into poverty, reversing 30 years of economic improvement.

And, that’s where we come in!

In partnership with our local mission partner in El Salvador, ENLACE, who has been working with local churches throughout that area to identify the neediest families in that region, we have a list of 20,000 people who, as a church family, we can bless by providing hope for these hungry brothers and sisters. And, here’s how YOU can help:

GIVE

All money given to this year’s Lenten Project will go to directly feed our hungry brothers and sisters in El Salvador. On average:

  • $3 feeds a family of five for a day
  • $90 feeds a family of five for one month
  • $540 feeds a family of five for half a year
  • $1,080 feeds a family of five for an entire year

You can give as an individual, as a family, as a group of friends or a small group. No amount is too small. Every little bit counts!

PRAY

Please be praying for all those struggling due to the impact of this global pandemic, and the lasting impact this Lenten Project will have for our brothers and sisters in El Salvador!

SERVE

We have a mission trip tentatively planned July 10-17, 2021 for anyone interested in working on the ground, alongside ENLACE, to assist individuals with things like building eco-stoves and home gardens for food security. Updates will be communicated as the dates get closer. To learn more about this trip, please email missions@hopewdm.org.

It’s so good to be the church, and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do through this project. Thank you, Hope, for being a church on a mission to reach out to the world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ!

“‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink?’ … Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’”
