Anthony Bontrager

This week's Take Us Along Winner is Anthony Bontrager of Topeka, Ind. He took Indiana Auto & RV along on a trip to San Salvador, El Salvador. He is shown on the left with Jackie Lynne Yoder on the right. They were in the country to visit his cousin who are on the mission field. They are standing in front of Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo.

San Salvador means Holy Savior in English. It is the capital city of El Salvador. The city is one of the largest urban centers in Central America and is home to the Central American Bank of Economics. The Pipil people lived in the area long before the Spanish came to the area. The town was founded in 1525 but changed locations twice in the mid 1500s. The Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo or Monument to the Divine Savior of the World consists of a statue of Jesus standing on the Earth. It is located on top of a tall concrete pedestal. It is the city's landmark and represents the country and Salvadorans around the world. Thanks for taking us along!
