El Salvador BBQ - $11,200 raised to build homes!

We sure had an awesome weekend for the BBQ fundraiser - God provided a gorgeous day.  We had no idea what to expect with the new earlier service times but who knew that people would love breakfast burgers!  A big thank you for all the support that was shown in many ways!

A total of $11,200 was raised to build homes in El Salvador! The homes we build cost $3,400 each so that's 3 1/4 new homes!

We are so excited that even more families will have a solid, safe and secure home this build season.  But even better is that more families will experience God's love and have the opportunity to get to know Him more intimately because of the generosity of the church community.  We are absolutely amazed at God's goodness and His provision.

Thank you for all your encouragement and support for the El Salvador teams!

"Cityscape of El Salvador"
by Elliott Song
Silent Auction of the framed original “Cityscape of El Salvador” by Elliott Song will be taking place.  Elliott is a high school student who went on the March 2017 El Salvador trip.  He drew the picture while on the trip in March and it really captures so much of what we know and love of El Salvador.
Silent Auction closes at 12:30pm on Sun 17th. 
Prints can be ordered as well.  Two print sizes are available: 
10” inches x 18” inches for $60.00 or

If you can’t make it to the BBQ but would like to order a print please email me at  elsalvadormission@bethanycc.ca

Jewellery by Carolyn also available at the BBQ!  Here’s a sample of some of her beautiful pieces!

All proceeds go towards building homes 
for those living in extreme poverty in El Salvador.  
Hope to see you there!
