Mission Update 6/7/17

Hello my friends from Shushufindi, Ecuador. Things are very busy here, and VERY HOT! It is much hotter now than it was when I was here in January. I just wanted to send a quick update to let all of you know how things are going! This is the first of 8 weeks that I will be here in Ecuador this summer. This week we have a team of 18 with us doing many different things. We are holding the second module of our pastor's, women's, and children's training. We also have a doctor with us from Virginia leading a small group doing medical consultations with families. We have a small team building some desks for the christian school where we house our training. We are also doing children's ministry and evangelism in the evenings at a local park. 

It has been a very busy week thus far but very fruitful! It is a tremendous blessing to be a part of what God is doing here in Ecuador. I am extremely blessed to have each of you by my side!

Please pray for us as we continue in this Kingdom work the rest of the week in this heat! Also pray for our students as they are being taught the Scripture. Lastly, pray that God would continue to open doors in this area of Ecuador. I love each and every one of you and cannot wait to share in person with you about these experiences. Keep an eye open for more updates!

Before I conclude this email I wanted to include a picture. I have tears in my eyes as I type this....to share this miracle with you. Each of you are aware of the tragedy that occurred here in Shushufindi in January. One of our pastors students was killed in a tragic car accident on his way to our training. He had his two nieces in the car. They struggled to survive for a long time...one of the two young women was in a coma for over a month. They debated pulling life support multiple times.....I took this picture on Monday, it is an image of our first women's class for this session. The two young women up front are the two young women from the accident....
