La Libertad, El Salvador – Children’s Ministry Outreach
Compassion International: Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. Goal: to enable them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
This trip is partnered with Compassion International, Crossroads, and The Landing Place Church in Colorado. The week will consist of ministering to our Sister Church in La Libertad, El Salvador: a Compassion student center where they meet the needs of over 200 hundred Compassion sponsored children, and work directly with pregnant moms and moms of newborns teaching them proper care of themselves and their newborns.
Some of the things we will be doing throughout the week:
|+ Participate in ongoing activities through Compassion’s Child Development Program at our partner church
+ Tour the Compassion International’s facility and see firsthand how this amazing ministry unfolds to care for 34,000 children in El Salvador
+ Be part of a Vacation Bible School for all the sponsored children and have FUN with these precious kids
+ Assist the church/child development center in anything they need
+ Attend church services and worship our God with our Salvadoran brothers and sisters
+ Take part in home visits with some of the sponsored children
+ Engage in “Fun Day” for the all the children we sponsor individually and through each campus.
