Hello to all at home. We arrived safely. This hotel is beautiful and very peaceful. We started out our day by attending Cristo Rey Lutheran church. It was a unique experience to be able to worship with the El Salvadorian people. The pastor was very welcoming and very appreciative of us coming. He incorporated his sermon of transfiguration in relating it to how God changes us and gives our hearts the ability to make a difference. It was very moving. I was not the only one with tears in my eyes. It was great to see the youth helping Harold follow along in the service. We were able to take communion also. At the end of the service the youth of the congregation presented each of us with a cross to remember them by. Following the service we went to Pollo Campero which is Like a KFC. Then we drove an hour to our hotel which is isolated up in the mountains. We do not have as much access to a computer where we are at now. We will try to update but if not some are able to send emails through wifi. The sign at the church¨If you want to talk God it is not necessary to have a cell phone. Thank you for correcting my spelling regarding pupusas.

Planning on building a new temple in March because their last one was damaged in the earthquake. It should take about 5 months

To talk to God you don´t need a cell phone.
