By Rosie Shawver, FAB participant 2013 JustFaith Immersion to El Salvador

JFES2013_0541Ever since I learned about Oscar Romero and the Jesuit martyrs, El Salvador has been a place I have wanted to visit. Prior to going I knew that El Salvador was sacred ground.

Mike and I arrived to El Salvador on Friday, August 2nd. Once the tires of the plane hit the tarmac tears started to form in my eyes. I had arrived. Looking out the airplane windows I saw endless green, beauty, and serenity. It was hard for me to fully imagine the bloodshed that had occurred in such a gorgeous place during the Salvadorian civil war. Please follow this LINK.
