Fr. Survil said that he would accept us if we paid our own way, so all that we had saved for the children became very useful.
Fr. Survil prepared for our coming by renting half a house for us at $50 per month. At this price we could have stayed for years.
The U.S. priest, Fr. Bernard Survil, with whom we had gone to work, was first imprisoned and then deported three weeks after our arrival. We decided to stay and work with the base communities in his parish and the Sisters at our daughter Jennifer's school.
Fortunately for Fr. Survil, at that time the government deported foreign priests. Salvadoran priests they killed.
When Mark had gone to report the deportation of Fr. Survil he went directly to the seminary and into the former archbishop's office. The old archbishop, Oscar Romero's predecessor, wanted to ordain Mark to replace Fr. Survil, but there was a matter of celibacy and a few other things.
Fr. Bernard Survil had asked Mark to get a lot of pictures, but unfortunately Mark didn't have a camera. When Mark parked his car on the day of the protest Mass, he had noticed that the car next to his was a brand new model with a pistol on the seat and was driven by a well-dressed man. The presumption was that he was a government agent.
As far as the government was concerned, we were obviously related to Fr. Survil, who kept upsetting the government with leafleting our colonia with peace and justice materials. Fr. Survil would walk through the colonia talking to the people and selling Justicia y Paz, an innocent publication which the government saw as subversive.
After he was jailed the first time, Fr. Survil still refused to stop distributing the church publication and continued to write letters to the editors of many newspapers in the United States. He was picked up one evening by plain clothes agents (according to our neighbors) shortly after visiting with us and discussing future plans.
Not long after the death of Fr. Rutilio Grande and the deportation of Fr. Survil, Mark was going to the El Camino Real, a fancy hotel, to purchase the Miami Herald to catch up on the news.

We found Father Bernard Survil, a Maryknoll associate with whom we were to work. He welcomed us and arranged for us to dine with the nuns who staffed a girl's school which our nine year old daughter was to attend. The nuns were also involved in comunidades de base.
Father Survil had been in that area for many months and traversed his parish daily, usually carrying with him the diocesan newspaper "Orientation" and "Justicia y Paz" a justice and peace sheet, which he sold for about a penny. We later learned how he covered so much ground. His pace was a slow gallop.
These diocesan papers were Father Survil's downfall. They were considered subversive. (Imagine the Texas Catholic Herald being considered communistic. These papers were not that different). He was arrested and jailed two weeks after we arrived.
Prior to his arrest Father Survil had asked us to atttend a Mass protesting the expulsion of a popular Colombian radio priest.
Father Survil was released from prison only to be expelled from the country. He had introduced us to his community and they accepted us.
