Missionaries in El Salvador had the opportunity to feed 136 families with funds that were sent by Tomoka.

“We were able to purchase groceries for three communities in need,” said Andrea Geisinger, who along with her husband, Joshua, have been doing all kinds of work to bless communities throughout the region. This time, they were able to feed families in Boca Poza, La Preza and La Perla.

Many of the families they fed were farmers, who live in very rural areas. Others live in small beach communities that had lots of residents lose jobs in light of the pandemic.

Another way the Geisingers are making a difference in El Salvador is through their ministry, Filter of Hope.

“Josh and Andrea bring water filtration systems to people,” said Missions Director Connie Davis. “Water quality is so bad, people may have to walk for miles to find clean water. Josh and Andrea give these systems to people, and it allows them to spread the Gospel. This time, they were able to do the same thing with food.”

Davis also mentioned that when she first heard about this story, it reminded her of Matthew 25:35: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” This verse epitomizes what the Geisingers are doing for people in El Salvador, and Tomoka is honored to work alongside them.
