EL SALVADOR

March 13-20, 2021

Team participants will join ENLACE as this mission partner expands their work to fulfill their mission of “equipping churches to transform communities”. ENLACE has been equipping local churches to transform communities within El Salvador, Nepal, and the U.S. since 1993.  Team participants will not only learn from church and community leaders about their hopes and dreams for their communities, they will also engage in community projects (guided by local pastors) such as building eco-stoves or home gardens for food security, depending on availability and need. The goal of this trip is for participants to leave those we meet feeling empowered, encouraged, and supported for their Kingdom building work.
