Ministry Description

Ministry Partner: King's Castle

Construction

We will be working in one of the barrios to help rebuild and restore a much-needed food bank and feeding center. In the past this center has been a great opportunity to share the gospel. Due to storm damage, the roof needs to be replaced in order to start a complete rebuilding process. All skill levels welcome.

Medical

In a world where most do not have adequate medical care, the Assembly of God ministry center at Castel del Rey, El Salvador, provides quality care as they minister in the name of Jesus. We need pharmacists, doctors, nurses, dentists, eye doctors and other specialists as well as willing hearts.
