El Salvador team reaches community through Maximum Mission event
The El Salvador Central District’s Professional Ministry coordinated a Maximum Mission event in the community of Veracruz June 6. Together with the support of the district youth leaders, they conducted a medical clinic, painted the community’s school, and ministered to children.
By the end of the day 150 people received medical assistance and medication, 60 families were reached with the gospel, and five people accepted Jesus into their hearts.
Alexandra Sermeño, one of the young participants, shared her experience at the event:
“Serving God is one of the greatest privileges I experienced, and the Maximum Mission has given me the opportunity to serve with my talents and with all my strength. We know that the purpose of attending the Maximum Mission is to arm ourselves with energy, courage, and a lot of hard work. It is very tiring, yet very satisfying because we know it’s going to bless a community that has different needs. At the end of the day, we realize that we receive the greatest blessing. God moves in incredible ways at the Maximum Missions … so much so that even the dangers around us decrease. This is something that we saw in the most recent Maximum Mission, where even the gang members in the area saw the power of God reflected in each of the ones who were serving. Seeing the joy on the faces of the children when they realized that we painted the school where they study and then to share with them and their parents the word of God in a different way makes all the work worthwhile. I’m sure that the Maximum Missions are a blessing to those receiving us and for us who serve in them. I am very thankful to God for allowing me to be part of it.”
