On the morning of July 6th, two teams from Timberline will be flying to El Salvador until July 14th. The first team of 21 students and 5 adult leaders will pack stay in the country’s capital, San Salvador, but work in El Espino and La Labor. For the third year, they will be working with an organization called, Enlace, which means, “to link.” Enlace’s goal is to be a bridge from the local church to the community and will serve as a catalyst for the church to continue connecting after the trip. While in El Salvador, the team of youth will be training church leaders for children’s ministry and spend a lot of time with the kids and several different families. However, this year, their main project will be to build Ecostoves and provide a safer, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly way for families to cook rather than over an open, wood-burning fire. To learn more about the Ecostoves, visit www.cookinguplove.org.
The second team, comprised of adults, will be impacting the communities of El Salvador by providing a medical clinic to minister to the physical as well as spiritual needs of the people.
While the teams are gone, please pray for:
- safety in travel
- health throughout the trip
- the students to encounter God and be transformed by Him
- partnerships with the church so families can experience the love of God
- wisdom and stamina when seeing patients through the clinic
