Acajutla, El SALVADOR


Summer 2018
Written by Alan and Diana Clark - El Salvador

Our work for the Lord continues in the area of three different assemblies in the west end of the country. Acajutla, Amatal and El Carmen. We are thankful to the Lord for a good number of young adults in the El Carmen area that have professed to be saved, and we would appreciate your prayers for these individuals as conditions of life in this country are demanding.

We have had some older Christians with limited care, so Diana spends a good measure of time helping them in basic health care and more if necessary. We try to make a regular visit with food supplies to some families in all of these three assemblies as we find that is a better way to help in the health of these dear Christians. She knows a local Dr. that has been very helpful in some of the more severe needs, and he tries to make himself available when we need him.

Our visits in colonias (municipal districts) are limited because of gang activity, so we use the privilege of hospital visits in the Sonsonate hospital, and we can cover about 500 people most different in each visit with texts, Via magazine, and requested bibles. We usually give out about 90 to 100 Bibles in each monthly visit. It has been a good area of response. Also, we try to share our time teaching in these three groups of Christians. Outside of the city work is very scarce, so many difficulties result from that problem.

A very encouraging aspect of our work is that in almost every gospel meeting we have a good number of unsaved people in the meeting. Along with this, nearly all people here believe there is A God, and they have respect for the Word of God. They know that there is no other help, especially since the dream of getting to the United States has been crushed.

We have recently seen a man and his wife and three of their daughters saved in the El Carmen area, a needy family as they have seven children, so the challenge is great, but our God is Greater.
