A home-cooked meal helps build a church

El Salvador (MNN) — Cooking a meal has helped build a church! Believers in El Salvador held a cooking fundraiser to help with the cost of building a church for their brothers and sisters in Honduras.

While the food was being prepared, Operation Mobilization volunteers shared Christ's love with the people attending the event.

Materials for the construction of the building were purchased in Honduras with the money that was raised, and 70 team members went to the village of San Marcos Ocotepeque to begin construction and to work with the people in the village.

While some members worked on the construction of the building, others offered free medical help and medication. The medical team also spoke to their patients about the hope of Christ. Other team members went door-to-door to share God's love.

With the building done, Daniel from OM El Salvador said, "We proclaimed it to be a place to worship and bless His name." Many people came to the Lord through this trip. The local church can now disciple the new believers in their new building.

Pray that the new believers will grow in their faith. Also pray for the local church that they will continue to minister to the people in their village.
