Since 2009, we have been working in a rural community in Quetzaltepeque, El Salvador: preaching the Gospel and making disciples. We have seen several families come to know Christ, and had the privilege of baptising some of them. We have also been able to repair several homes, offer food and clothing, employment, and informal "scholarships" for at-risk-children and youth.
We have also worked alongside other local non-profits, churches, and children's homes, sharing resources, encouraging, counselling and learning from one another. We always work within Salvadoran law, with outsourced Salvadoran lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, etc.
Between 2012-2014, we built 5 aquaponics systems throughout the country as a "tent-building" initiative to cover some operational and construction costs. We have trained over 20 local farmers in sustainable, organic, aquaponics - providing food to hundreds of people.
With the help of faithful, new, and expanding networks of ministry partners, it is our goal to build our first residential building in 2019.

"Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.” (Matt. 10:41,42)
"He [Jesus] told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." (Luke 10:2)
