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.
