Invitation to "Postcards from El Salvador" Luncheon

“Postcards from El Salvador”
12:15pm following worship on Sunday, April 19th

Lunch will be provided by
the El Salvador Partners Mission Group

Join us for a slide show and reports from CBC’s delegation

Now that we have recovered from the excitement of our recent experiences in El Salvador, we have started organizing our stories and photos to share in various ways with the CBC community, as well as the Alliance of Baptists and the Baptist Peace Fellowship and others.

We have a lot to tell you about...
  • the diversity of the 150 member SHARE delegation, including a large number of high school students from Oregon, college students from Georgetown and American University, a Jewish hunger advocacy group named MAZON, the National Lawyers Guild, and more
  • the fascinating elections process and historic FMLN victory celebrations in San Salvador
  • advocacy actions before the election and a post-election visit at the US Embassy
  • bowling with Nora Pullen and youth from Shekina one night in San Salvador
  • a beautifully relaxing afternoon and evening with some of the Shekina adults at a lake in the town of Suchitoto
We hope you’ll join us for lunch and a slideshow presentation on Sunday, April 19th!
