Taking the Gospel to the Poor and setting the captives free. Luke 4:18
Dan Salas Ministries’ cry to the Lord for years has been, “Here I am, send me.” DSM’s mission field is forever expanding, but for the moment it is Guatemala on the north and Columbia to the south, along with the Caribbean.
DSM has been in prisons from Panama City to the Petén area of northern Guatemala and many prisons in between; from the retired section of old men, to the youth prison to the notorious 18th. Street Gangs of El Salvador.
When natural or man made disasters strikes, whether it be flooding in the banana plantations of Costa Rica, the ill effects of hurricanes Mitch and Felix in Nicaragua, or the destruction caused by government bulldozers they are there to fill the need but more importantly to tell those hurting about a God who loves them.
The greatest concentration of DSM has been along the Caribbean coast, from as far south as the city of Colon, Panama the entry to the Panama canal and as far north as Puerto Cabeza in northern Nicaragua near the Honduras border.
Many times it is the poor that invite DSM to come and help evangelize their area. Gandoca, a Caribbean town had only a concrete floor, and a partial tin roof installed, and no walls, yet they were hungry for a touch from heaven. This is all it takes to motivate DSM to travel the 5 hour trip to proclaim good news.
