The authors are two priests from the diocese of New Westminster who are working as Volunteers in Mission in El Salvador. Here they describe the Lutheran University in San Salvador which "provides a sanctuary, not only for learning but also as a biological reserve". Also describes the development and construction of homes and a community at Anglican Villa II, San Marcos, which is a diocesan community and home building project. "The families, the engineers, and the professional construction workers are working together building dignified, safe and sanitary housing that is a basic component of a sound community. Church lay ministers and the social worker are also working to ensure that the small community is a strong support for the families".
