Our second day on the field was spent investing in each other. Most of our ministry is conducted at schools and churches- neither of which are running on a Saturday! We talked as a team about how our job is to serve our contacts, and part of that is being in agreement with them and the itinerary they set for us. We were able to give our translators the Saturday off to be with their families, and also love on M and J, who are Wally and Judy’s grandchildren. We also discussed the fact that our long term missions field is with each other. When we leave the field, we still have each other to invest, love, and serve with.
We drove about 2 hours out of San Salvador to Apaneca, a town up the mountains full of coffee plantations! We went ziplining over the coffee plantations, partially in the rain- see the team member videos below to hear their thoughts!
Afterwards, we went to La Pampa, a local restaurant, for lunch. The team tried some adventurous foods, like fried yucca and grilled rabbit, before heading back to the hotel to spend some time in prayer and journaling. We feel so ready and equipped to hit the ground running again and serve well!
Love, Team El Salvador
