Our first weekend in Ecuador was a source of great blessing to us! On Saturday, 12th, we met at our church with about 200 pastors and ministry leaders from churches who came from near and far. After a time of worship together, the ladies accompanied Sharon where she taught them on Loving, Trusting and Serving God. I taught the men some leadership principles.
Then we all joined together again and I spoke from the book of Acts on Perseverance in the Ministry. We had a wonderful time of fellowship as we enjoyed a delicious lunch of arroz con pollo.
A special surprise was a generous offering given to Generations International!
On Sunday, 13th, we were so blessed to attend, worship with, and speak to the church that the Lord blessed us to establish 33 years ago. Pastor Fernando has led the church to have 3 identical services every Sunday morning, at 8 am, 10 am, and noon. The total attendance was over 450, including 7 first time visitors. One lady was baptized and one man trusted Christ as Savior! Lots of hugs after the three services from very dear people!
We are happy to report to those churches who supported our ministry "way back when" that fruit continues to be added to your account!
Sunday evening we had an intimate meal with about 30 people, pastors and wives, who came together to encourage us in our new ministry!
We are SO blessed to be here! Please pray for the Lord's continued guidance, provision and blessing on our ministry in Ecuador!
