Church in Arlington VA sends volunteers to El Salvador, and even Haiti
At a Community Assistance event at Mt. Olivet Methodist Church in Arlington VA, I noticed that the church supports sending volunteers to a Habitat for Humanity program in El Salvador.
This country is one of the most dangerous in Central America, and is responsible for “sending” a large number of illegal minor immigrants to the US.
It is, for example, much more dangerous than Belize. Previously, I’ve written about mission efforts in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and (in Africa) Kenya.
The church also seems to be working on a program to support volunteerism in Haiti.
It would be very difficult for most individuals (especially young) to deal with this.
