The organization Christians for Peace in El Salvador, or CRISPAZ, hosted me and ten other University of Dayton students for one week in January, 2015. Throughout this week my peers and I experienced the daily routines of those living in the fast-paced atmosphere of San Salvador, the capital city of El Salvador, as well as the town of San Jose Los Flores, a small agricultural village with dirt roads and one large church at the center. I had anticipated that my time in El Salvador would be a life-changing experience, but I had no idea that these eight days would change my perspective on faith, service, and international relations.
