Experience Church in El Salvador

Mission Trips

Samaritan’s Purse Canada took a team of volunteers from Experience Church in Calgary on an exciting trip to El Salvador to help provide clean water for people in need. The team worked on the construction, installation, and monitoring of BioSand Water Filters, as well as took part in an Operation Christmas Child shoebox distribution.

Samaritan’s Purse has short-term volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups to serve and connect with what God is doing through our projects around the world. Participants will share the hope and love of Jesus Christ while making a meaningful contribution to our project work and gaining a new perspective of the global church and their role in God’s kingdom.

“Our team in El Salvador was able to build and install water filter systems for 25 families who hadn’t had access to a clean water source prior. It’s incredible to see entire communities being impacted by our partner there as they provide the source of life, both literally and spiritually.”

“When a school receives a water filter through our partner Agua Viva, all the students get to go through a 12-week discipleship course. We were able to celebrate with the amazing kids as they graduated this week, complete with awards, cake, and of course a soccer game! (Canada 🇨🇦 vs El Salvador 🇸🇻)”

“As we installed filters, we had the opportunity to share the gospel with each of the families and pray with them. After hearing the good news, 6 of them decided to follow Jesus!”
