NEW COUNTRY AND NEW GROUP ALERT!! Imagine a 10 year old girl living on the streets. No one take care of her. She sniffs glue to get high and numb the hunger pain she feels. She does what she has to to survive and in many cases she is abused and preyed upon. This story can honestly be from any undeveloped country anywhere in the world. But in this instance, this is Angela's story and she lives in San Salvador in El Salvador. She is one of the lucky ones. She was introduced to Mission to El Salvador and that's where her story changes. Mission to El Salvador is all about relationship building and community engagement. They work to discover and address core issues of inner city poverty in order to restore dignity and safety to hurting and exploited Salvadorans. What we love is not only are they concerned with physical and mental needs, they are also focused on sharing Jesus.
One of their initiatives is creating cards. They do something very interesting called quilling. What's that? It's where you take strips of paper and you roll it and create decorative designs. I fell in love with not only the design but what the card represented, giving someone hope, dignity, and a chance at a new life.
We are excited to have Mission to El Salvador join The Marketplace family! Come to the Oak Street location and check it out!! Cost? $5 Gotta say my favorite is the little duck. What a cute baby shower card!
