El Higueral is a poor farming village in the mountains of El Salvador with which Saint Andrew has had a sister relationship since 1992. Our twice yearly visits are intended primarily to let the Salvadorans know they are remembered in our prayers and that we care about them. When a work project is proposed, our team joins in as fellow workers.
We go primarily as learners, not teachers. We learn what it means to live in hope and faith and joy in the midst of poverty. We learn to get along with less of the material possessions we claim to be required for a good life. Team members inevitably report that the experience has changed the way they view the world.
