Mike Rasmussen sells houses in the Lower Mainland, but spends a great deal of time building up hope in El Salvador, with his wife. The B.C. Catholic's Laureen McMahon shares the experience:

Coquitlam realtor Mike Rasmussen and his wife Angelique, a teacher at St. Patrick's elementary in Maple Ridge, teamed up in 2005 with Project F.I.A.T. International, a volunteer program of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which helps the desperately poor in the tropical jungles of El Salvador.
