Think about this.....when you go home and go to your sink....water comes out...here in Sonsanate El Salvador....that is not always the case...even in the city of San Salvador....we are truly humbled and grateful to be here and got to the Living Water House safely....this is AMAZING!!!!! The ride here was great, singing songs and laughing, but also putting into perspective another world where people don't realize their situation and actually they are just grateful to be alive!!!!! Tomorrow we are going into the village where we will be drilling the well...til next time!!!! Ha
Greetings from the our Brothers and Sisters in El Salvador....we made it safely here and the flight was great....with the exception that we are still trying to figure out how Joe Gitto and Tori ended up in first class on the flight!!!!!!! Josue and Veronica Ortega send their love and this is our picture in their mansion!!!!!! LOL!! We are about to eat pupusas at Leo and Sandra's house!!!!! And Lexy is from VAN NUYS!!!!!

"It just comes in the moment" famous quote by Sharar Ali-Speakes.....we are at the gate Joe Gitto is taking pictures on his phone....Juan is hanging on...I bought Sharar a 7$ Soy Latte(airport fee)....Ryan just in from GLEE.....Lexy is telling stories from Trader Joe's and Sgt Sommerfeld is COMMANDO!!!!!!! WE ARE READY TO BOARD!!!! AND believe it or not Tori got through security with all his metal jewelry!!!!!!! Getting on the plane....til next time....Stay tuned!!!!
2 Days away from serving our Brothers and Sisters in El Salvador...and our team is excited!!!! Filled with all the emotions, but excited to be going and serving....Passports, bags being packed, gifts being bought, childcare being taken care of, and airplane online check in's.....WHEW!!!!! and we haven't even left Los Angeles yet....but I can tell you this the team is excited about going and are really looking forward to the opportunity of getting there and getting our hands dirty with clean water!! El Salvador HERE WE COME!!!!!! Please continue to follow us on this blog....and keep up with our El Salvador Adventure!!!! We would also like to thank Sarah (you know who you are) and Living Water for their diligent help with making this trip seamless and worthwhile.....
Being from the Philadelphia and moving to Los Angeles was kind of a big deal...and living here in Los Angeles, in a first world country has many advantages and one of those, of which is taken for granted from all people in the United States....is water...that's right H2O...many people and children die in other parts of this world because they do not have access to clean drinking water. This coming week I will have the pleasure of traveling to El Salvador with some other members from my church to help drill a clean drinking well for a village there...we just had a meeting of the "minds" and talk through our trip and gain an understanding of what to expect as we get there, what we will do, and the many lives that will be impacted by our Godly service....all of the members of the team are excited and overwhelmed with what needs to be done before our trip, but as with many things in the end God is in control and He will always take care of his people....We have been given a charge to continue the mission of our God and church and will do our best to bring His love to the wonderful people of El Salvador...you are welcome to join us in this journey by following this blog and hopefully check out some of the pictures from our trip...to God be the Glory...AMEN!!!!! Til later this week when we make it the airport....how exciting!!!!
