THE PEOPLE – Pastor Matias is a very humble man, who leads a small Christian congregation in El Salvador. His heart is not only to share the Gospel of Jesus, but to give young men in his congregation a real-life employable skill.
THE PRIMARY CHALLENGE – The parts, supplies, and tools needed to train these young men cost money – something Pastor Matias isn’t rolling in.
THE PROJECT – Pastor Matias is a gifted welder. Specifically, he creates wrought iron art – the likes of which adorn fences, windows, and gates. The Pastor will train young men under his care in this artistic endeavor. This definitely falls into the “teach a man to fish…” category.
THE COST – $4,000.
