I set out to help a community in El Salvador with no expectation of receiving anything in return. It wasn’t an easy task - not to receive anything in return, that is. I was surprised that I received so much; much more than I could have imagined. I received the kinds of smiles that are pure, with no ulterior motives; open, sincere, and frank. I have to emphasize the honesty of those smiles. At the end of the week I felt I was in desperate need of help rather than the one needing to give.
My team and I were impressed with the dedication and commitment of all of the national team that trained us, took care of us, and spent time with us. They all function so well with a combined spirit and commitment to their faith and LWI.
