Field Report: Santa Rosa Church Construction
*We wanted to send out this report before we headed out to the Congreso in a few days!*
For this mission, we had a team of 22 Americans with a diverse amount of gifts to assist the indigenous villagers of Santa Rosa in building their church. We had a wonderful time supplying them with materials to build the church, and provided help with whatever they needed. The team also brought a large amount of food to give away to the village to provide hope amidst the flooding in the region. We gave away roughly 30 pounds of food to each family, around 180 families in all, which consisted of pasta, salt, oil, rice and other vegetables and fruit. There was also a doctor on the team, who provided basic medical care and gave out medicine to villagers in need. Lastly, we held the 2nd half of the 4th Annual Worship Ministry Conference following the construction of the church (which we highlighted in our last report). Thank you for everyone on the team who served the villagers of Santa Rosa, as well as those people who financially supported the team/initiative and made this mission happen!
