Waking up on Saturday morning to a thunder and lightening storm was very discouraging. I was worried about us having to ride in the pouring rain and if the weather would deter people from coming to the Ride For Refuge fundraiser. We only had to wait a few hours and the skies cleared and it turned into a beautiful day for the ride.
The Bethany El Salvador team had 14 people who rode and we as a team were able to raise over $6100 in donations.
What a difference these funds will make to people who living in poverty. The money will go toward purchasing the material to build homes when we are in El Salvador. We will be there from March 1-9th building with team #1 and from March 8-16th with team #2.
We are excited to see how God will use the teams to share Christ love.
