Philly Youth Delegation to El Salvador!

We started Sunday at the tomb of Romero then were off to Las Anonas for a quick – too quick – visit to our sister community.

We toured the community, greeted families, cried with the family of Jose Armando (a youth recently killed related to gang activity in the region), visited Maura who shared her story as the mom of 3 disappeared children and her search for them. Wow.

Monday was construction of the kitchen -made concrete for the foundation of the rebar while another group went off to the city council to advocate for gang-free communities. Our two groups met up in El Salto where we built last year for lunch. What a warm welcome! Saludos for all from last year!

Now we are in Morazan with 5 leaders from Las Anonas having breakfast and will go to El Mozote together. All is well. Thanks for prayers and support!
