Holland's in Partnership with the Evangelical Methodist Church of El Salvador

Holland’s UMC is in an ongoing relationship with The Evangelical Methodist Church of El Salvador. In July nine of our members traveled to El Salvador as part of a Mission Work Team. The week was spend on the construction site for El Shaddai EMC and distributing food during prayer walks to locals in and around the towns where EMC has congregations. We were also blessed to present a check in the amount of $15,250 for the purchase of property for a church building and parsonage in the village of San Lorenzo for Emmanuel EMC. Our gift of $5,000 provided 1/3 of the monies needed for this church to build.

There are plans to send construction and medical work teams in 2015. Anyone interested in going on a team should let one of our Missions Team members or Pastor Gary know, and we will get more information to you. Everyone is encouraged to give prayerful support to the work of the EMC of El Salvador.
