Exciting Summer in Ecuador
It has been a busy summer in Ecuador! We have had the privilege of hosting many teams and have seen great things happen. We have seen building projects start, salvations, healings, and hearts being united as one. Our training for pastors, LTI, is up and running and there is a new excitement among our pastors. We believe the best is still yet to come for the work here in Ecuador!
What an honor to have had the Emmanuel Singers with us over the summer! Led by Rev. Tres and Rachael Ward, we had our first-ever Music and Youth Conference. There were over 100 in attendance. This group left such an impact on the youth of the IPHC in Ecuador and formed relationships that will last through eternity.
The Marysville Church and The Well Church from the South Carolina Conference blessed our church in the south with a children/youth room and a new apartment for our pastors, Jorge and Anabela Navarrette. The bottom floor will soon serve as a larger sanctuary.
Attached are just a few pictures of our teams from Northpointe, Fountain of Life, Bethel Life, and The Message Church. I wish there was room to share more! Each team was such a blessing in Quito, Tulcan, Otavalo, and Macas.
The land is cleared in Otavalo. We will start building soon. The city went in and paved the streets, put in curbing and sidewalks, AND added a bus stop right in front of where the church is being built. This is an unforeseen blessing provided by the Lord!
Our furlough is just around the corner. Please be in prayer for us as we transition back to the States, and as we raise our support for our second term. God has been so faithful the past three years, and we know His faithfulness and favor will continue to be upon us!
