5 years ago, in a hot and humid classroom in El Salvador, MVP “was born.” When we consider all that has happened – the lives we’ve touched, the community we’ve built, the hope we’ve witnessed – it’s hard to believe it all began only 5 years ago! What an honor to be part of such a life-giving movement. We have learned so much from the students and our co-laborers for peace, and we feel so blessed to have such an amazing MVP Family – both in El Salvador and in the US!
In honor of these 5 years that have passed, and with hope for all that will happen in the next 5 to come, we wanted to share an MVP version of the 12 Days of Christmas. 12 quotes and pictures from our volunteers about how they’ve seen God’s hope through their work with MVP. If you follow us on Facebook, we hope you’ve been seeing these daily posts.
Let’s celebrate Emmanuel, God with us, through the coming of a baby and through all the ways that Good News has and will continue to transform our lives and our world. We hope that you enjoy part 1 (Days 1-6); may it “offer strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow” as we are reminded that God is still Emmanuel – God with us – bringing peace to our hearts, our lives, and our world.
Check back in on Christmas Eve for part 2 of these 12 Days of Christmas Hope from MVP, or follow us on Facebook to see our daily posts!
For those of you who have already decided to join us on this mission for peace with your financial gifts, thank you! We truly cannot do this work without you!!! If you are not yet part of the MVP family of support, would you consider joining our monthly donor team or making an end of the year gift? Every dollar helps make a difference in the lives of young people in El Salvador. Together, we are spreading peace and hope as we prepare a new generation for a brighter future. Thank you!
Merry Christmas, and God’s peace to you!
