On November 21, 2012 Indridi Kristjansson, Darcy Dube, Clifford Holloway, Ida Hernandez and Frank Malina traveled to Central America to minister and help distribute the goods that were shipped from Langley mid-October 2012.

They landed in Costa Rica to visit with friends and churches for the first week. They traveled in the vicinity of San Jose, participated in a pastor’s conference and met with a Christian Senator to be part of a prayer meeting in the Senate chambers.

Following the visit to Costa Rica they flew to San Salvador in El Salvador and drove to Jiquilisco where the spent the remainder of their trip. Here they participated in several services and helped with the distribution of clothing, sports and medical equipment.

Pastor Douglas Rivera, the person responsible to receive the containers in El Salvador, was very grateful for the donations and the help that Indridi and others provided in the distribution as well as the ministry. Also, the mayor of Jiquilisco, David Barahona, came to thank the team for their support and the help received from GEMS Canada and KHMI and presented them with a plaque.

The team has been travelling throughout El Salvador and is set to return in the next few days. They have spent time speaking at various churches and seeing first hand some of the hard hit areas from the flooding in the past month. The container that was sent ahead of them was held up for a few days but has been released and is being distributed, the team is assisting in those efforts.

They had the opportunity to go to the Mayor’s office in the town of Jiquilisco, El Salvador and speak with the Mayor, the council and a number of city workers. Pastor Darcy Dube and pastor Douglas spoke with the Mayor who was very appreciative of the help that was given.

Loading the container for El Salvador

Kingdom Harvest Ministries in connection with GEMS are taking a group of church leaders from Spanish congregations in the Lower Mainland BC to El Salvador on Monday November 21, 2011. The team will be assisting the distribution of a container filled with humanitarian aid that left the GEMS depot in Langley on the 1st of November and has recently arrived in the port city of Acajutla. This trip is in response to the recent crisis in El Salvador caused by the heavy rains and flooding.

The team will travel throughout El Salvador to minister in various cities as well as a three day visit in Guatemala.

They will return on December 4th, 2011 and we will post pictures and stories of the great things God is doing in this area.
