December Prayer Focus: We give thanks to God for the peace-making work of the churches in El Salvador. We join their ecumenical movement during the month of December to call for 0 homicides during the holidays. This is a call out to all groups, all leaders of every sector of society, including gang leaders, to say YES to life in December!
