Let's Do This!


To El Salvador, Central America

August 1- 6, 2024

You are invited to come to El Salvador for an annual mission experience, August 1-6th, 2024!  Julie Jacks (Resurrection Lutheran, Redondo Beach), along with Pastors Kristian and Anna-Kari in Chicago, have been leading delegations to accompany the Lutheran Church of El Salvador for 25 years. The Southwest California Synod is a "Companion Synod" with El Salvador. We walk alongside the Salvadorans as they support children to go to school, install solar panels, help build churches, conduct medical campaigns, and participate in a peace march for human.
