A number of those who were involved with the beginning of IFCLA were people who had experience in Latin America - not just in visiting as a tourist, but from spending time living with the people and experiencing their lives.
Over the years this idea of becoming immersed in the lives of the people has been key to trips that IFCLA sponsors. These trips include such things as:
- Witness for Peace delegations
- Peace Brigades International teams
- Fellowship of Reconciliation trips
- Guarjila student trips
- Other Guarjila/El Salvador trips
- Nicaragua trips
- Honduras trips
Lately, the majority of our immersion trips have been to El Salvador because of our long relationship we have with Guarila and other places/people in El Salvador.
