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

We had a fantastic week of VBS at our church in Primero de Mayo, Cayambe. There was an attendance of 117 kids! We put together a short video summary of the week so you can get an idea of what it was like to be part of the action.  Our theme this year was “Jesus,

Cotinga at the school

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)  Caring for children with disabilities, I believe, is “religion” that God accepts.  Our work with the Cotinga Foundation is making great strides to minister

Fighting the Good Fight Together

Special Sunday service

One of the greatest words of advice that the Apostle Paul gave Timothy was “fight the good fight of the faith” (1 Tim. 6:12). Living a life of righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness as the previous verse describes isn’t easy.  It’s a fight.  Serving Christ in ministry is a fight.  Since we last

The past two months have brought us so many opportunities to be thankful for, but we are most thankful for you because without you on our team, none of these things would have been possible. We want to make sure we say thank you for all of the financial support and prayers you have offered

A Summer of Investment

   Often, summer vacation is viewed as a time to rest and relax from the routine.  However, for us here in Cayambe, it’s a golden time of investment in the future of the ministry.  There is no better time to disciple young people than when they are on vacation from school.  This year, most kids

Most schools in the USA have already started back up again, we here in Ecuador are just getting started on our summer break.  This is by far the busiest time of year for us, but we wanted to give you an idea of what we’re up to this month.  We just finished our first week

Short term teams leave long term impact

July 21, 2016

We are often asked about the value of short-term visits to the ministry.  Our answer is always the same: short-term teams leave a long-term impact.  This has certainly been true of the teams we have received since our return to Ecuador.  Since our arrival back on the field in June, we’ve had the opportunity to

We were met with an excited welcoming committee from our church as we arrived at the airport in Quito last Tuesday night.  It was suddenly as if we had never left, except for the 12 suitcases that emptied their contents all over our house.  There was no time to rest, however, as our praise team
