This year’s delegation was January 8th to the 18th. The participants included George & Elizabeth Bunch, Jane Ann Harper, and Gwen May from Trinity Presbyterian Church; Pr. Karla Kress from St. Andrew Presbyterian Church; and Kent Madsen from St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church. The delegation was small in size but the feedback from the participants was that they really enjoyed the intimacy and cohesiveness of the group.
When I first signed up to go on a mission trip with Santa Cruz al Salvador, I basically knew little about ESalvador other than it had had a horrible civil war in the 1980s, was poor and had major gang violence. I was expecting to find malnourished, dirty, sad, withdrawn children.
