Comunidad Nueva Esperanza tomorrow

Filed under: Uncategorized — samanthabass @ 10:33 pm

This afternoonwe had class with Father Rafael de Sivatte, the director of the theology department at the UCA. Tonight, a group of scholarship students from the University are coming to our house for pizza.

Tomorrow, I’m leaving for Comunidad Nueva Esperanza, a community of 104 families about two hours outside the city. During the 80s, the community fled to Nicaragua because of government repression. They moved back to El Salvador after the peace accords and founded the Nueva Esperanza community on principles of Liberation Theology.

I’ll be meeting with members of the agricultural cooperative, the Health Emergency Fund,  the pastoral committee, and ACUDESBAL.
