July - August 2014 Newsletter
Greetings from Ecuador
We want to keep our newsletters to 1
page, so please check Facebook
frequently for full details and photos.

First, we want to say thank you for
investing and partnering with us
nancially and through prayer.
Together we are touching the lives of
many children, adults and local

What have been doing?
We are working in three
different orphanages
and many remote
Indigenous communities
where there are no
evangelical churches
and very few Christians.

We have been busy with
short term mission teams
from our home church and
also with our mission
partners and local pastors.

We were also privileged to
have had two families come live and
work with us; the Beck family of four,
missionaries from Shell, Ecuador for a
week and the Pelletier family of ve
from South Florida for 3 weeks. Both
families were a wonderful addition to
our ministry if even for a short time as
it allowed us to minister more
affectively. The Becks are now in
Cuenca working with Reaching and
Teaching Ministries and hope to help
us when they are available.

Please pray for the
Pelletier family as they
seek the Lord for His
plans for them in

Please also pray that God will send
people to work directly with us too as
we need a team.

Interested in Short-term
Missions? We are booking teams
for the end of 2014 and for 2015.
Please consider joining us for a short
term or long term missions trip with
your church or as a small group or as
an individual!

New doors of ministry;
We were invited into
Mushuk Kawsay
TriligePublic High
School in Tambo to openly share the
gospel. The school director and
president are christians. They are
looking for full-time volunteers to
teach Bible and English. Please pray
that we can nd volunteers for both.

Remember this photo we shared on
Facebook? It shows two
communities, El Rodeo
and El amarin located
in the Andes mountains,
in which Pastor Gonzalo
wished to bring the gospel.

Here are a few photos of the Childrens
Evangelical program we presented in
both locations.

It was a great success:
the gospel was given,
we had huge turn outs
with lots children and
adults and we received invitations to

Most of the children had never seen
this type of VBS
program. We shared the
gospel using puppets,
music, coloring sheets,
crafts, gospel magic, an
interactive story and an
animated video of Jonah and the
Whale, taught a memory verse, played
games and fed the children lunch.

We also had an opportunity to do the
program for
an orphanage
for the
handicapped in
Yunguilla and a
Shuar squatter
village in Shell.
