Destiny team brings hope

Pastor Darcy Dubé and a small team from Destiny Centre in Tsawwassen recently returned from Usulatan, El Salvador.

The seven-member team from the local church had a 40-foot container shipped to the Central American country filled with supplies for local residents. It included approximately 12,000 articles of new and used clothing, shoes, wheelchairs, sewing machines, toys and blankets, Dubé said.

Usulatan is a very impoverished area, Dubé said, noting the average wage for a labourer is $1 an hour or $2 an hour for journeymen.

"But if you want to buy deodorant or shampoo it's the same cost as here," he said.

Kingdom Harvest Ministries International, his church's international ministry, is in the midst of a five-year plan in Usulatan.

This year marked their third Christmas with a Purpose trip there.

Dubé said the group works with local government, police and ministries and also supports families affected by gangs and the drug trade.

On this trip they brought 150 soccer balls along with uniforms and soccer cleats for kids from "gang families."

. Dubé noted Kingdom Harvest Ministries International will be handing out food, winter coats and shoes Saturday in North Delta. Families in need can register to pick up a family pack at
