Mission Trip to El Salvador
Organized by: Carly Donald-Walther
Event Name: CrowdRise Halloween Challenge
Thank you for helping me to help others!
In March of 2015, the FOCUS Missionaries of GMU's Catholic Campus Ministry are going on a variety of mission trips around the world, and I will be participating in the mission trip to El Salvador!
While in El Salvador we will be working hand-in-hand with local residents to build a Catholic Church. The community that we will be helping has been having Mass in a garage shelter with hundreds of Catholic worshipers overflowing into the streets! There is a plot of land set aside to build a provisional church which will be our project for the week. I will be working hand-in-hand with college-aged locals from an orphanage in rural El Salvador. Many of these students lost their parents in El Salvador’s Civil War that ended in 1992. On our mission we look to continue building the church structure – as well as God’s spiritual Church on earth. This is an amazing opportunity for me to travel, be immersed in a new culture, and to grow in my faith!

My ultimate goal has been surpassed!! Thank you so much for all of your support. If you have not donated and would like to do so, any additional money with go toward the greater mission trip fun rather than my own.
