The centerpiece of ENLACE’s mission is to help and support local churches in El Salvador as they engage effectively in service with their impoverished communities. Building and renewing relationships between each other and God, therefore, is at the heart of what we do. ENLACE’s Church Partnership Program broadens that relationship building as it joins U.S. and Salvadoran churches in long-term partnerships that equip the local church to fulfill God’s plan of wholeness for its community. Along with helping a poor church reach out to its neighbors, U.S. partners that send teams to El Salvador experience first-hand the transformation that is taking place. They often return home with a renewed sense of who they are in Christ and who they are to their immediate and global neighbors.
Recently, a team from CrossWay Christian Church came to El Salvador to meet and serve with their church partner in the Abelines region. Another team from CrossWay is in El Salvador this week to continue building relationships with the local church.
CrossWay team member Phil McArdle created this video which offers a glimpse into the type of experience that many U.S. church partners share with their Salvadoran brothers and sisters. The team works with church and community members on a project, sharing laughter and friendship to encourage one another in the work to which God has called them.
