August 6, 2015 Anniversary March

This site was developed by the Greater Milwaukee Synod (ELCA) El Salvador Companion Committee and is the official web site for the relationships which the synod has with the Salvadoran Lutheran Church and Comunidad Rutilio Grande. This site was also created to serve as an ecumenical and informational resource for all who wish to deepen their relationships in El Salvador and connect with others around the world.

September Prayer Focus: We continue to pray for Pastor Rafael and his family following the loss of Pastora Norma. We give thanks for the rains that have come and pray that the areas of drought be nourished. We pray over the fellowship of churches working together to bring dialog and peace in the midst of violence.
