7: Our Flight attendant from Houston to San Salvador was celebrating her birthday and wanted a picture with Papa Noel.

8: Genevieve noticed our t-shirts and approached us and asked if we were from Canada. She explained that she was very nervous as she had come to San Salvador to identify her daughter's father. He had been missing for a year. We asked if we could pray for her. We gathered around her and prayed for her as we waited to board our next flight. What a blessing to be able to pray for her and share God's love with her.
