A Spectacular Summer!!

A Spectacular Summer…

…and it’s not over yet!



A record-breaking VBS!

“Thank you for all you do for the children of our neighborhood.” commented one of the parents as she dropped her daughter off at our VBS program.  Our neighborhood is a rapidly growing part of Cayambe. One of the ways we can tell that there are a lot of new families is the increase in the number of children we see coming out to our VBS.  We had record numbers of kids this year.  We started on Monday with the same number of children we normally end the week with. Overall, about 140 kids attended this year.

One of the best things about the week was seeing some of the Junior High kids who used to be in the club now working as leaders.  A new generation of adolescents are moving up into the youth group and learning to serve, rather than be served.  All of the Bible teaching, songs, and team leadership was done by our youth.
Also, we had a great attendance by the parents of the kids during our closing ceremonies on Sunday morning.  Please pray for the follow-up with these new contacts.

Check out this video summary of our week of VBS. Please be praying for these kids and for their parents as we follow up with them.









Chatham Bible Church Team

Chatham Bible Church sent a team to help us with the next phase of construction in our church: a new classroom.  This new classroom will be more than twice as large as the previous one.  The current classroom will be converted into a nursery class.  We currently have as many as six babies in our Sunday service, which can be quite challenging.
The team also lead a youth day-camp every day in the afternoons.  We had several new teens attend the camp, and several of them have continued to attend our events.  Each day, one of the teens on the team and one of the teens from our youth group shared their testimony.  It was a powerful experience for both our Ecuadorian teens and their American visitors.

 

Check out the video we made of the Chatham Team’s week with us.

Pray with us in August:

  1. Praise for a great VBS,  please pray for the new kids who came and their parents who visited as well.  Pray for opportunities to follow up.
  2. Praise for the visit of the team from Chatham Bible Church. Pray for the church as we finish the project the team started and do follow-up with the teens who attended the day-camp.
  3. Pray for the four weeks of camp we are now in the midst of.  Pray for Daniel and Luke who are attending camp for the first time this year. Also pray for Dave as he serves as the conference speaker for the final week of camp, August 20-25, for the 18-25 year old age group.
  4. Pray for Brenda as she prepares the year of home schooling for the boys.
