My wife, Christine, and I and two of our children have been selected to join a mission team which will be traveling to El Salvador, Nov 8-16, 2014. We are dependent upon the prayers and gifts from others in order to join the Lord in His work there.

My wife, Christine, and I and two of our children have been selected to join a mission team which will be traveling to El Salvador, Nov 8-16, 2014. Our family feels called to share the good news of the risen Christ and his unending love and grace with the people of this impoverished, polarized country.

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."  - Mark 16:15

We will be staying in the city of San Salvador, the capitol of El Salvador. Due to this being the capitol city, San Salvador has become a melting pot of many races and cultures. About 40% of the population live in tremendous poverty. There is an increasing breakdown of social stability, family life, and government corruption, poverty in villages, crime, and drug activity. There is such a need for stability that can be found only in Christ.

Along with the rest of our mission team from Bay Area Community Church (, we will be partnering with a local Christian church and helping them evangelize to and disciple poor children, youth, and families in San Salvador and the nearby village of Guayabo. Our team will be:

  • serving the poor at the Guayabo Children's Development Center;
  • sharing the gospel with families while doing evangelistic outreach;
  • encouraging youth in their walk with Christ; 
  • conducting a women's conference and more.

But we can’t do this alone… We need your support to help us go to El Salvador and spread the love of Christ. First and foremost, you can begin praying as we build our team and prepare to go. The second way you can be part is by giving financially. If you feel led to give to this work, it would be a great blessing to us. The total cost of the trip is more than $6,800 and we have payments due beginning in September. We need support and no gift is too small.

All contributions will be passed along to Bay Area Community Church in your name (unless you request to remain anonymous) and will be tax deductible. If you provide your address when making your donation, you will receive a statement at the end of the year directly from the church.

If you prefer to send your contribution by check, please send your donation to: Finance Office, Bay Area Community Church, 884 Chesterfield Road, Annapolis, MD 21401. IMPORTANT: Please write WODA - EL SALVADOR NOVEMBER on your check.

If you have any questions at all, I’d also love to speak to you to provide additional insight and answers. Simply contact us via the site and we'll respond right away.

Even if you can’t support us financially I would greatly appreciate your prayerful support for us, our mission team, and that Christ will greatly change the lives of the El Salvadorians. Thank you for your time in reading our site and I hope you have a blessed day.
