Week of Prayer & Fasting

Thank you to all of you who participated in prayer & fasting for this ministry. We saw God move and know He did even more than what we can see. A large part of what we felt God do in our lives was simply taking time to be quiet and listen to Him without all of the distractions of life. To that end, we were able to start the week in the mountains and end it housesitting for some friends.

We have a vision of taking the city of Cuenca for God, and He spoke Proverbs 16:32 to us, "He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city." May we never forget that our responsibility to honor God in our own lives & in our character is more important than anything we "do for God". It was truly a blessed week.

Fundraising Update

These past two months we have been able to focus much more on fundraising. We have visited several churches to share the vision God has given us and to encourage the people. We still have a ways to go in fundraising, but we have seen God move in wonderful ways in our visits with other pastors and churches. Please keep this ministry in your prayers as we know the devil will try harder and harder to discourage us as we come closer and closer to leaving for Ecuador.
