The team left Saturday and we are missing them like crazy! Chris, Veronica, and I are staying a few extra days to say our goodbyes and tie up some loose ends with our campaign. The first ITN trip was a huge success and we are so proud of our team for stepping up to be apart this mission. Wrapping up, we were able help a lot people in these few days! We built a new roof for Amparo and her incredible family, we served the homeless at Mission to El Salvador, we ran a vacation bible school, and spent a day with the kids from Tia Ana’s orphanage!
This trip would not have been possible without some key people! A huge THANK YOU to Coles Family Dentistry, Brieghner’s Tire, DGI Creative, Bethel Assembly of God, the doctors and staff at Hanover Hospital, and all those who donated to individual team member budgets! Thank you so much for your help!
Moving forward the ITN Team will be moving into phase two of May You Find Rest campaign with Amparo! This will include help in improving Amparo’s economic stability. Over the next few months we will be working to EMPOWER Amparo by walking along side her to develop a business model for her hammocks. We want to see her take the business as far as she would like it to go. In that, the plan is to help her create a structure here in El Salvador that will allow her to sell hammocks in artisan markets. In addition we would like to sell the hammocks as an Into The Nations product back in the States! All the profits made by ITN will be going back to her community and further ITN projects! We are so excited to see where this goes and invite you to be apart of the journey!
Thank you so much for following us on our trip!
