El Salvador Mission
DUMC has sent support to the church and school in the little village of La Magdalena, El Salvador for over 10 years! We have seen this ministry grow from a barren plot of land into a thriving church and Christian school!
Currently, there is kindergarten, first and second grades. The school is growing and is adding the third grade next. Eventually, this school will educate through the twelfth grade. We have heard testimonies from many local families, and Pastor Mauricio and Pastor Francisco, that this school IS MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE in the lives of these children and their families.
A team will be returning in November 2016 dates TBD. There will be a wide variety of things to “do”, but the most important is the continued relationship-building with the community.
DUCKY DERBY FUNDRAISER:
The Ducky Derby is a fundraiser for El Salvador and plans are underway for this event. Please consider volunteering for this great family-friendly event.
As the school grows, so do the financial needs. We currently have 5 teachers to support (salaries), as well as the Administrator’s salary, and regular administrative costs of running the school (electricity, internet, supplies, desks, etc.). The financial needs have been growing! For only $30 per month, you can help insure that this vital ministry continues!
The school is out of classroom space! Construction of an additional large classroom building is being planned. For this next project to happen, we will need major financial support. An architectural drawing and budget will be available soon.
