If we can share any insight about God's mission, about hearing God's call to mission, about answering God's call to mission, about doing God's mission.
It is simply this,
"Do not be afraid"

Just after the elections Dianne and I had a group of Election observers from Chicago come visit us and our community. I'm glad to say that they said from their viewpoint they observed nothing alarming to report. They also stated that for the most part they were welcome at the different locations they visited although one spot the people were a little cold or suspicious of them but again they had no problems. This is very good news. These people deserve a huge amount of credit because it can be dangerous. Elections can bring out the worse in people and these observers bravely walk into places they've never seen and report what they see impartially regardless of their own safety. That's brave and God bless them.

Last Sunday Dianne and I were officially installed as Lay Missionaries in El Maizal with Pastoral and Administrative responsibilities over El Maizal (Church of Divine Providence), Pacifico de Brizas (Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe) and Acujutla (St Georges Church). We will be conducting Church services in all 3 communities. We will also be visiting all of them to bring them the Word of our Savior and educate people further about the Episcopal Anglican Church of El Salvador.
It was a wonderful event to share with many of our parishioners and friends in El Maizal. It was surreal for us to read (in espanol) the vows of a new minister on Page 562 of the BCP to the congregation. It's a big step but we don't take it alone and it's calming to listen to Bishop Martin remind us that great things are possible through God. It's very exciting and we ask that you please support us with your intercessory prayers. The following are our installation letters.
Dianne Wilson, lay missionary in the Church of God, you've been called to work together with your Bishop, Priests and Deacons as lay missionary, and to participate in the various activities of the Episcopal Anglican Church of El Salvador.
Thomas Wilson, lay missionary in the Church of God, you've
