Is God asking us to plant another church?

Updates

August 17, 2017
Our VBS ministry team
This is the question we are asking ourselves.  Otón is a large community about 20 minutes to the south of the city of Cayambe.  It sits at the base of the mountain where the community of Canguahuapungo lies, a place where we have done many different ministry activities in years past.  There is a family of believers there who have attended our sister church in El Quinche for several years.  Oton is closer to Cayambe than it is to El Quinche, so we decided to work together to do a VBS there this summer.  The reception we received in the community was very positive.  ThOton ministryey allowed us to use their community center for the teaching time.  We had about 60 kids in attendance each day and several adults who stayed to watch.
Below we have included a brief video of our time in Otón.  We are conversing with the pastor of the El Quinche church about the idea of creating a special ministry team made up of members from both churches for the purpose of following up with a kids club and an adult Bible study. Will you pray with us about what God would have us do there as a next step? There are a lot of variables that have to come together, but most importantly, the Spirit of God must be over this work for it to succeed.

Here are a few ways you can pray specifically:
  • Pray that God would enlighten us with wisdom in how to proceed in this new ministry opportunity.
  • Pray for our first planning meeting with our potential ministry team made up of members from our church and the church in El Quinche.
  • Pray for the community of Otón that God would go before us ripening hearts for the harvest and opening doors for the Gospel.
  • Pray for time management and division of resources as both churches share the burden of this new ministry.
  • Pray for our host family in Otón as their testimony to their relatives and neighbors will be critical as the ministry develops.

Church Construction

The new renovation project at the church continues to move forward.  The walls are plastered, the stairs have rails, and the lights are installed.  It will be several weeks until as a church we can raise the funds for paint, but we are very happy with the progress so far.  Click on this link for a photo album tracking each stage of construction.
Is your church or small group interested in helping us continue this project to build a new classroom?  We are looking for a team interested in helping us build the second floor now that the first one is finished!  We would love to have you!

School Begins

Soon our boys will be going back to school, which means Brenda will be going back to teaching. Daniel will be starting 8th grade and Luke will be in 5th grade.  Please remember our boys in prayer as we balance homeschooling, family time and ministry demands.
