El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. It is only about the size of Massachusetts, yet has around 7 million inhabitants. There are an estimated 3 million more expatriate Salvadorans living in the U.S. and Canada. Most of this expatriates provide economic relief for their families still living in El Salvador.
The country is bordered by Guatemala, Honduras, and the Pacific Ocean. It is a beautiful country filled with mountains, volcanoes and beaches.
The capital San Salvador, boast a population of 2 million people, and is a modern, growing and dynamic city. However, much of the country is still rural in nature and the economy in large part is still based on agriculture.
While the majority of people in El Salvador are lost, without Christ, the Christian population is growing rapidly. Although the current government is communist, there is liberty to share the gospel openly, even in public schools. And, over the past decade or so, a great spiritual harvest has been reaped.
Paul said, "My prayer and hearts desire for Israel is that they be saved." Our prayer and hearts desire is that EVERYBODY in El Salvador be saved, as well.
Our slogan/theme/ prayer here is "El Salvador sera para Cristo." In English, "El Salvador for Jesus." Before He comes, may it be so! .
