Day 2 in Beautiful El Salvador!

The second day in El Salvador was absolutely amazing. We started with breakfast at the hotel and then jumped into vans to meet the families whose houses we were building. After a quick introduction and a prayer, we split off into our groups to play some team building games with the families to get to know them. 

Later that day, we took a short hike on Volcan de San Vincente, where we got to see volcanic vents. There the team settled at a view where we sung some hymns and heard some beautiful heartfelt stories from the Shelter Canada employees about what pushed them to start working with this organization. It was a great end to a great day and we are incredibly excited for tomorrow to start doing what we can here to do – build houses!
